We work both on a local and national level, providing curated services for all business needs.



We offer eight years of PR and Marketing experience. We have helped businesses from small to large tell their story. We have a thorough understanding of what a client needs when getting their name out there.

Whether you’re a maker of jewelry or a small business selling hand bags, we can help you manage your product placement public relations, pitch your story to national media, gain brand ambassadors, craft speeches, plan a press conference, and connect you with celebrities.



Our Team

As much as we enjoy our day-to-day supporting our wonderful clients, we also help give back to the community by participating in beach clean ups and teaching classes to those who want to grow their marketing skills. We also believe in flexible work schedules and locations.
