As a professional, we know you realize communications are your most powerful means of making an impression ... on customers ... on employees ... and on stockholders.  Effective communications take talent to get the message across and take time to research and produce.  If you are like most busy people, your time is in short supply.  How many of your best communication ideas have been smothered because you didn't have the time or manpower to follow the project through to completion?

How did you get into this business? When my husband and I relocated to Panama City in 1992, we realized there was a void in the marketing and public relations arena. We have a writing, publishing and media production background. Although I specialize in medical marketing, we provide services to various non-medical clients, as well. Services include: marketing plans, advertising, public relations, copywriting, event planning, training, and my husband does videos for social media, legal depositions and weddings.

What do you like most about your business? Panama City is the most amazing city I’ve ever lived in, and I love being able to “give back” through my business expertise. I was one of three local businesses that founded the Advertising Federation of Panama City and helped establish BooksAlive! Most recently, I have worked (pro-bono) as chair of The Panama City Lighthouse Project Inc., and am a former president of The Rotary Club of Panama City. Community service is part of what makes our business special.
