Service Description

My services include:

Communications Planning
Planning services begin with a review and evaluation of a client’s communications priorities and challenges. I then work with clients to develop a strategy to enhance the organization’s success and achieve outlined goals.

Media Relations Strategy
Every organization has a story to tell. I identify and pitch the strongest angles that give print, broadcast, and online media relevant news to educate, entertain, and inspire their audiences.

Press Release Development
A press release is a staple tactic in many public relations campaigns. To have the greatest value, they must be informative, engaging, and newsworthy. I develop press releases that capture attention and motivate target audiences to action.

Message Development and Training
The ability to clearly and consistently communicate an organization’s mission is paramount to their success. I help clients distill their purpose into concise language and train them to deliver it in a meaningful way.

Social Media Management
I help clients navigate the sea of social media platforms. From guidelines and usernames to hashtags and content, I develop and manage a strategy to maximize engagement with stakeholders online.

Content Development
I work with clients to author newsletters, brochures, annual reports, blogs and other materials. I also develop corporate style guides that set standards to ensure uniformity of all written communications.
