She spends her days as a media communications specialist and her nights at the ice rink. Her alter ego? Hockey Mom. Sarina Gleason, a Grand Ledge native, spends much of her time cheering on her 11-year-old son as he stands in the net as goalie for a traveling Lansing hockey team. “I like being a hockey mom … it’s fun. It’s like a family,” she said of her fellow hockey parents. When she isn’t at the rink, Gleason spends her time at Michigan State University as the Media and Communications Manager for Health and Medicine. As the Media and Communications Manager, Gleason is responsible for communicating breaking health and medical news with the public. “The best part of public relations is developing relationships … and being able to share really great stories,” said Gleason. Graduating from Western Michigan University with a degree in public relations, Gleason has worked with all types of organizations and businesses ― gaining a deeper understanding for the art of public relations. As the chair of the board, another passion of Gleason’s is with the Ronald McDonald House. Gleason feels that community involvement is invaluable, adding “Dedicating time to the community that you live in, and trying to make a difference in people’s lives (is important). It doesn’t matter how big or small that difference is ― it all adds up.”
