Neil Schoenherr

Senior News Director, Law and Social Work

When I’m not busy celebrating the Chicago Cubs first World Series win since 1908, I work with the WashU Brown School and School of Law as senior news director. I help plan and implement media relations strategies for the schools, work on strategic communications plans, write and distribute press releases, assist with faculty op-ed pieces, and work with members of the media.

I’ve worked in Public Affairs at the university since 2000. I enjoy collaborating with our world-renowned faculty and working closely with passionate and driven colleagues across the university.

I’m a proud graduate of the communications program at Valparaiso University in Indiana. In my spare time, I enjoy playing with my kids, photography, playing guitar and bass, listening to music, and reading.
