“Being a publicist and the mom of 3 young children – ages 13, 11, and 6 - I love the fact that I’m able to use my PR skills to help get the word out about top-quality, family-friendly businesses and special events for kids. When I know about something wonderful and newsworthy relating to children, I can’t wait to ‘alert the media’ and let other parents out there know about it too!”
