Welcome to my new home

I decided there aren’t enough public relations bloggers out there, so here’s my blog!


I’d like to thank bloggers including Nikki at Essential Elements and Shonali at Waxing Unlyrical for encouraging me to go ahead and jump in this busy pool of public relations professionals. I’m not going to proclaim I’m THE innovator. However, I’ve been in the business for 15 years. Before that, I was the journalist on the other side of the pitch, so I’ve seen lots of interesting stuff, good and bad. I’ve had victories and gaffes, and I own everything that’s helped me get where I am now: A public relations consultant with a diverse book of business and a network of smart, cool colleagues that I’ve molded into Jemef PR.

I’ve been on my own since 2011, and was a home office advocate a few years before that. I rolled into Detroit in 2009, and it turns out it was NOT good timing. Auto companies and suppliers stripping down and starting over meant the market was flooded with communications folks looking for new opportunities. It turns out, I found the right one: At the encouragement of new friends from PRSA Detroit, I decided to take a partner and we made a go at running our own business, which evolved into me running solo. Things were going great, then I found out I had to take the show on the road: My husband’s in the hotel biz, so moving is also part of my world. In the summer 2012, I started calling Dallas-Fort Worth home. It’s a testament to my great clients and the strong partnerships I’ve forged that I’ve continued to work with my two biggest, both of whom are based in Metro Detroit.

I expect the Jemef PR physical location will change again, and my geographical home base will inform/inspire/infiltrate my posts from time to time, along with my perspective on the home office thing. You can see in this pic what Jemef PR looks like 99 percent of the time. Most of my stuff will come from where I’m the most comfortable, but I’m going to be coming at you with a lot of different stuff. I’m excited to talk about what I see in the world of communications, to hear what you have to say and to get smarter from it!

Welcome to my new home. I look forward to connecting with you! What would you like to talk about?
