Tegan Blank
Marketing Manager

After beginning her design journey over ten years ago, Tegan has discovered that graphic design is not just a career: it’s her passion. In 2013, Tegan graduated from Winona State University with a BA in Graphic Design and an AA in Mass Communications. From there, she spent five years working on the campaigns team at Fastenal followed by another two years working for Elevate Media Group in downtown La Crosse. After becoming part of the LCT team, Tegan has enjoyed expanding her design talents whenever possible and is excited to combine her favorite things (theatre, design, photography) into one! When her eyes aren’t transfixed to a computer screen or her face hidden behind a camera lens, you’ll find her acting for local community theatres or exploring nature with her adorable dogs, Digger & Colby, by her side.
