Michelle Prine (Robertson)- Owner/President of 360GrandLake.com/Grand Splash Marketing, LLC
Michelle thought of the concept in late 2009 while doing research online for Grand Lake area companies. In Her words: "There just weren't very many options to be able to research, at the time I was selling print advertising and when I went to search for companies to add to my leads list I had a hard time finding them. I was spending more time searching than actually getting a list accomplished. So I couldn't imagine what a potential consumer that may or may not know the area would go through. One of the sites I ran across was actually 360Tulsa.com, and I thought wow I wish Grand Lake had an option like that!" Within 6 Months she made it happen, 360GrandLake.com was launched February 1st, 2010 and has continued to expand within the last 3 year to cover a full Grand Lake, Oklahoma online directory, social media, Photography, marketing and advertising consulting, events, promotions and pure Grand Lake FUN!
Michelle lives on the south end of Grand Lake full time with her husband, and their combined four children Willy, Tatem, Kate & Tensley.
Cindy Robertson, Office/Billing Manager
Cindy is the master meme of 360GrandLake.com and the heart of the office. She is the proud mother of Michelle and the amazing grandmother of Tatem & Tensley. Cindy is the keeper of all important at 360GrandLake.com and with out her our team would not be complete.
Madi Engel, Executive Sales Associate
Hello! My name is Madi Engel and I am an Executive Sales Associate for 360GrandLake.com.
I graduated from Oklahoma City Community College with an Associates in Public Relations. I took many courses around the Public Relations field in but my absolute favorite was my Public Relations and Advertising classes. It was definitely one of those light bulb moments where I knew this is what I was supposed to do.
I love talking to people, hearing their stories, learning about their business and how they got started. Whether they came up with the idea on their own or the business has been in their family for years. Each business took hard work to get where they are and that is something I deeply appreciate.
My goal at 360 is to help businesses expand, prosper, and continue to succeed. Your business is SO great, I want everyone to know about it and have access to everything you can offer them.
While I am new to the area, my husband is a graduate from Ketchum High School and the person responsible for taking a city girl and moving her to The middle of nowhere as my friends and family like to call it. :) However, I feel as though I was meant to live here.
My hobbies consist of eating, spending time with my family, spending time with Jesus, cooking, cuddling with my dogs, and doing anything outside as long as it isnt too cold. Oh, and talking. :)
I look forward to getting to know more people around the area and helping you reach your marketing goals. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Martha J. Henderson, Content Editor
Martha is responsible for writing and editing news articles, press releases and copy for 360GrandLake.com, as well as assisting clients and co-workers with any projects that need words strung together.
I'm the type of person who always has a question and wants to know the who, what, where, why and when of any given situation, Martha said. My goal is to make sure those questions are answered on our customer's promo pages and websites. So when people click on their sites, they find all the information they need.
A veteran of the newspaper business, Martha is making her first foray into marketing at 360GrandLake.com and is excited about this new direction.
I've always worked in newspapers, from circulation and composition to advertising and the newsroom, Martha said. 360GrandLake and Grand Splash Marketing is pushing me out of my comfort zone, which is newspaper writing and design, and I'm enjoying seeing how my talents and skills can be used on a new medium, the Internet.
Martha has worked for two large daily newspapers: The Woodward News in northwest Oklahoma, where she was the composition manager, and The Galveston County Daily News in Galveston, Texas, where she was the advertising features writer/editor.
Most recently, she was the design editor/special sections editor at The Pilot, a national award-winning community newspaper that serves the Pinehurst/Southern Pines area of North Carolina.
A native of northwest Oklahoma, Martha is a relative newcomer to the Grand Lake area, moving to Grove in 2015, with her mother, sister and her sisters shih tzu, Ruthie Belle.
My father lives in Mustang, and we wanted to move back to be closer to him as well as other family in Oklahoma, Martha said. We basically threw a dart at the map, found Grove and moved here.
We had never been to Grove, had never even heard of Grand Lake, but we like the area and love the people. All in all, I think were adjusting to a lake lifestyle pretty well.
While taking time to get to settled in and get to know the area, Martha freelanced for The Grove Sun and NEOK Casino Connection magazine.
My last job in North Carolina was focused mainly on graphic design with some writing thrown in. Freelancing for The Grove Sun, writing the #GrandLakeEats series and about area happenings and organizations, like The Playmakers productions, Har-Ber Village, the Grand Lake Audubon Society and others, has helped me rediscover how much I enjoy writing, Martha said.
360GrandLake gives me an opportunity to tell the stories of Grand Lake businesses and organizations. Through my writing, Ill not only be able to share their stories, but also help them let others know what they have to offer the people of Grand Lake. And, the best part, Ill get to learn all about the who, what, where, why and when of everything to do with the Grand Lake area.
