Founder and Marketing Director
I founded PR Consulting in 2009—my strengths are in communication, copywriting, social media management, small business branding, and coaching clients to keep pushing forward (AKA being a small business cheerleader).
“Helping busy professionals set goals, focus energies and move forward with their business is the most important work I’ve ever done. I truly love partnering with our clients to build their brand and raise awareness of products and services they offer – it’s a pretty incredible feeling when they report success!”
Writing is a passion! I served as a contributing writer for The Bellingham Business Journal (July 2012-March 2015) and have been featured in Today’s Leading Women, Huffington Post, USA Today, Brandmaker News, Virtual Assistant Moms and WhatcomTalk.
Radio Feature: The Whatcom Report. Topics included Facebook marketing, Twitter automation don’ts and content marketing.
When not working on projects for PRC clients, you’ll find me spending time with family and friends or relaxing at our Whidbey Island vacation rental.
Memberships: Pass the Hat board member (2016 to present), Whatcom Business Alliance (2015 to present), Barkley Toastmasters (member 2014 – 2015, VP of public relations 2014/15), Bellingham Chamber of Commerce (2013 – 2015) and Lynden Chamber of Commerce (member 2009 – 2013, marketing and member services board chair – 2011).
I joined PR Consulting as a content strategist in June 2016; my responsibilities include producing original articles, web copy and social media posts for a variety of Whatcom County companies. My role also includes WordPress web development.
I graduated from Western Washington University in 2006 with a degree in journalism. I have extensive journalism experience working for various newspapers in the Pacific Northwest. For the decade prior to joining PRC, I was head of social media and internal communications for WWU. I also was an adjunct professor in Western’s journalism department, teaching news writing, editing and public relations. And through Western’s Extended Education, I taught area businesspeople how to use social media to build community. During my time at Western, I won awards both for my writing and web development work.
In addition to working for PRC, I’m also pursuing a master’s degree in communications and media studies from Budapest Metropolitan University in Hungary.
“What I enjoy most about my job is connecting people to those they need. Each of us has a way in which we can be of service to others, and my job is to help make those connections.”
Social Media Manager
I’m a 2012 Western Washington University graduate with a passion for communication, sharing ideas and building community ― that’s why I appreciate the power of social media.
My most recent professional experience has been working with a local manufacturing sales group to develop and implement organizational best practices and help facilitate making sales goals through marketing and sales analysis.
Additionally, I serve on the board with a local non-profit historical organization that uses walking tours to teach the history of the city I love: Bellingham, Washington.
I joined PRC in early 2017. When not working with the great team at PRC, I spend time laughing with family and friends, writing and performing music and playing outdoors.
I joined PR Consulting in 2016. I consider myself a creative individual and graphic design is one of my favorite forms of creative expression. I’m excited about putting my design skills to work for PRC’s clients.
I graduated from Washington State University in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in marketing. I have done graphic design work for business of many sizes, including large corporate brands and small family-owned companies.
I grew up in Oak Harbor, but my husband Cody and I currently live in beautiful Birch Bay with our dog and three cats. In our free time, we enjoy going to the cinema, embarking on fun adventures and binge-watching shows on Netflix. I also do wedding photography occasionally. All of this, and more inspires much of what I do with graphic design.
