PR & Media

PR & Media

I have a strong background in public relations and media placements, with long-time relationships with many Puget Sound area editors and journalists who write for print, blogs, radio and TV. These relationships are a result of my understanding of what makes a good story, and the best angles for getting coverage, which also enables me to place stories for clients in other markets. Below are examples of placements resulting directly from my pitches and relationships – how can I help you tell your story?
