Each month this year we want you to meet one of the hundreds of people who’ve helped build PRofessional Solutions’ success over the past 20 years. This month, meet communications consultant Pat Kelly.
The timing couldn’t have been worse. As a relatively new Vice President for Communications at Conservation International, I was gearing up for a major release of a long-term project that would define our unique mission when my team suddenly started to “disappear.” My media director was going on maternity leave sooner than we thought, and a part-time writer was moving across the country. Help! I needed it quickly.
Then I remembered meeting Kate Perrin, who had just started her company, the first PR temp agency in Washington — in fact, the only professional PR temp agency I had ever heard of. PRofessional Solutions to the rescue!
Within a week, I had a new media director who was so multi-talented that she could take on writing duties as well. She stayed for many months and got us through our branding program with flying colors. I was sad to see her go! I later learned that we were PRofessional Solutions’ first client, and I couldn’t have been prouder.
