Patti Rowlson: Founder/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, travelling with my husband Andy or relaxing at our Whidbey Island vacation rental…with a glass of red wine in hand.
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).
PR Consulting proudly supports Pass the Hat as a Community Partner. This Whatcom County nonprofit organization helps local residents who have been overwhelmed by the financial burdens of unexpected tragedies.
Matthew Anderson: Content Strategist
I joined PR Consulting in 2016 as I was preparing to head to graduate school overseas. It’s exciting to work remotely for a Bellingham marketing firm while living and going to school in another country.
I graduated from Western Washington University in 2006 with a degree in journalism. For years, I was head of social media and of a daily newspaper for Western, for which I relied heavily on my background in community journalism.
I have been an adjunct faculty member in Western’s journalism department, teaching newswriting, editing and principles of public relations. Through Western’s Extended Education, I’ve also taught area businesspeople how to use social media to build community.
When I’m not at work, almost all of my time is spent with my wife and three young sons.
“What I enjoy most about my job is helping people find others whom 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.”
Thomas Stoneham-Judge: Graphic Designer
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.
