Share your story with me and I will get it told by the media. There are a few key factors that differentiate me from the thundering public relations herd. I have determination and persistence as well as a hefty contact list filled with national media contacts with whom I have developed a strong rapport over the years. I know how break down doors to get through to them, but also when to back down. I promise my clients that I won't pitch a story unless it is newsworthy. Reporters have come to know me and trust me and I am not about to cry wolf with them. They know that when I come to them I have a story of legitimate importance and timeliness. The whole point is to get your story heard by the noisemakers of the world.
I began my career in Philadelphia as an Account Executive and Media Planner/Buyer on several high profile accounts including Wendy's International and Okidata. Four years later, I left for Columbus, Ohio to become Director of Public Relations for the Hyatt Regency Hotel. After a rewarding tour at Hyatt, I decided to move back to my hometown of Cincinnati and work for an advertising agency as Account Supervisor on America's #1 toothpaste brand. Later, I became Director of Tourism for the Greater Cincinnati Convention Visitor's Bureau, Community Affairs Director for WLWT-TV, and Marketing Development Director for WKRC-TV.

Julie is a fireball. She has an unbelievable amount of energy, intense loyalty to her clients and an unrelenting desire to get them publicity. While business editor at the Cincinnati Enquirer I had a hard time turning down a story from her because of her persistence and because her pitches were crafted thoughtfully. Julie's a pro, with a background in news, and she understands how to craft a trend story around her client's expertise; how to capitalize on current events to work a client into a topical story; and how to find the human interest elements in their businesses. Julie also has a positive, can-do spirit that is an asset to those she works with.Carolyn Pione - Communications Director, CincyTech
