About Patti

I founded PR Consulting in 2009—my strengths are in communication, messaging, social media management, small business brand positioning, and coaching clients to keep pushing forward with purpose (AKA being a small business cheerleader).

When I’m not working on projects for PRC clients, you’ll find me on a trail in Bellingham, spending time with family and friends or relaxing on Whidbey Island.

“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!”

About Matthew

Matthew and his family in Siófok, Hungary.

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 maintenance.

I have a master’s degree in communication and media studies from Budapest Metropolitan University and a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Western Washington University.

I have journalism experience working for various newspapers throughout the Pacific Northwest, and for the decade prior to joining PRC, I was head of social media and in charge of several aspects of internal communications at WWU. I also was an adjunct professor in Western’s journalism department, teaching news writing, editing and public relations. Through Western’s Extended Education, I taught representatives of area businesses how to use social media to build community. During my time at Western, I won awards both for my writing and web development work.

“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 part of my job is to help make those connections.”
