Missy W. Larsen is the Vice President of Corporate Communications for doTERRA International. She joined doTERRA in 2017 after serving as Chief of Staff to Utah Attorney General Sean D. Reyes where she managed policy issues, office administration, community outreach, and partner alliances. Results of her work are seen today in a successful and forward moving office.
In 1991, Missy launched her career as Press Secretary for the late U.S. Congressman Bill Orton (UT, 3). In 1994, she solely launched INTREPID Public Relations focusing on technology, travel and leisure, non-profit, political, crisis management, and brand awareness clients and campaigns.
In 2004, as a means to balance work and family, Missy left INTREPID and started MWL Communications where she represented some of Utah’s most valued businesses and organizations at their request. And, after mentoring a Somali-Bantu refugee family, Missy co-founded the Utah Refugee Coalition (now Utah Refugee Connection) in 2009. Today the organization connects refugees and refugee providers with needed resources and volunteers.
