Meet the Team
In 2001, Jenifer founded Strauss Marketing after leaving the Real Estate development business. She followed her entrepreneurial spirit and believes the road to success is paved with candy and guarded by unicorns. Anyone who meets this multi-talented event planning, marketing and public relations professional knows that she loves what she does and brings a spirit of compassion and a sense of humor as big as Texas to anything and everything she puts her mind to.
For more than two decades she has developed a dynamic team who has successfully launched brands and products in markets throughout the U.S. Jenifer is experienced in conceptualizing, creating, and implementing innovative strategies for a broad range of clients including culinary, beauty, retail, wellness, lifestyle, business, and real estate, among others. And yes, she does spell her name with only one “n”.
In 1999, she founded Lindsey Miller Public Relations - a boutique agency focused on traditional media relations for a multitude of trades including real estate, fashion, food, beauty and more.
However, in 2008 Lindsey fell in love with the restaurant industry thanks to one of her then ground-breaking Dallas restaurant clients, Bolsa. Pioneering Dallas’ movement toward farm-to-table, chef-driven restaurants and local, craft cocktails, this singular restaurant ignited her passion for all things food and drink. From that point, her focus intentionally shifted to promoting food-forward/brand-forward restaurants and products. Over the years, she has handled media relations for hundreds of some of the country’s most successful and admired local, regional and national restaurants as well as F&B brands.
Lindsey was recently honored with being named one of the Dallas 500 by DCEO Magazine - an affiliate of D Magazine.
