"In the two years that I’ve produced the #sustainablefashionforum and the five years that I’ve owned a PR and marketing company, I’ve had the opportunity to work with a number of amazing brands and companies from Anthropologie and Kind Snacks to local favorites like The Society Hotel and Prosper Portland. Through trial and error I’ve learned a lot about building and cultivating relationships and now, I want to teach you everything I’ve learned so that you can build lasting relationships of your own!"
