During my more than 10 years of experience working in the public relations industry, I’ve worked with clients across a wide range of industries, opportunities and budgets – from global information providers to local startups and nonprofits. And I’ve found one thing to be true. Effective communication must first be clear and second find an appropriate avenue to connect you with the intended audience. One cannot succeed without the other.
KB Communications was founded on my deep desire to connect people with the audiences they impact, whether those people are a business and their clients or a nonprofit and their donors or the people they serve. In the end, successful communication comes down to how well you connect with others. And that is what I hope to help people do – connect.
Prior to starting KB Communications, I served as an Account Executive at True Blue Communications, and before that at NPC Creative Services. During this time, I worked closely with clients to develop and distribute content that helped to achieve their business goals – from press releases and media pitches, to case studies, guest columns, and company blogs.
My experience spans a number of industries, including healthcare and healthcare IT, commercial real estate, staffing, banking and finance, and senior living, to name a few. In each of these industries, I’ve secured news coverage for clients ranging from the cover of a national magazine to a mention on a well-read blog.
I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing with a minor in Communications from Florida State University and my Graduate Certificate in Professional Writing from the University of Central Florida.
I am an active member of the Tampa Bay Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and the PRSA Independent Practitioners Alliance.
