Mara Blakslee


Mara, a true Arizona native, was born and raised in the heart of the state. A city girl at her core, her passion for public relations stems from a deep-rooted desire to share the stories of Phoenix natives and the businesses that have shaped the vibrant Valley. In 2023, Mara felt the call for change and traded the arid deserts of Phoenix for Denver’s snow-capped peaks, eager to immerse herself in the unique community of the Mile High City.

She is a proud Sun Devil, having graduated from Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism with a degree in journalism and mass communication, specializing in public relations. During her senior year, she kickstarted her career in public relations and marketing at a midsized agency. There, she played a pivotal role in assisting local businesses across Arizona and Colorado in achieving their business objectives through innovative social media and PR initiatives.

Through her passion for storytelling and community connection, Mara strives to build brand awareness for Prim’s clients by crafting compelling narratives that elevate both the business and the individuals behind them. Authenticity is Mara’s guiding principle in relationship building; she leverages this power to forge genuine connections with clients and industry media professionals alike.

Outside of work, Mara is off exploring Denver’s local art scene, thrifting for must-have pieces, and trying the city’s new restaurants, coffee shops and bars. At home, she loves to curl up on the couch with a can’t-put-down historical fiction novel or to binge-watch today’s hottest reality TV shows.
