Chris Lorence-July 2016

Chris Lorence

“It is with great sadness that I report the ending of our temporary PR assignment. Your associate was an exemplary addition to our staff during the maternity leave of one of our key staff members. She was quick to learn both our voice and our processes to make her stay with us amazingly productive. We could not have asked for a better temp!”

Chris Lorence, Executive Vice President/Chief Marketing Officer, Independent Community Bankers of America



Carly Cloud

“I’ve worked with other temp agencies before, and you guys are, by far, the best! This is an absolutely perfect fit – exactly the kind of job I was looking for – and I couldn’t be happier!”

Carly Cloud, Digital Media Specialist, Direct Selling Association




Kathleen O’Hara Mathers, The Fertilizer Institute

“We have finally hired someone for the Public Relations position here at TFI. Thank you for helping us out in the interim, having an extra set of hands really helped us get through our two major conferences and a variety of other fall activities. She was a lifesaver, and the staff really grew quite fond of her.”

Kathleen O’Hara Mathers, Vice President, Public Affairs, The Fertilizer Institute

Stephanie B. Dufner, M.A.

“Thank you, Kate and Melanie, for providing me with opportunities to enhance my skill set during my tenure in the D.C. Metro area.

During my two years in the region, I held a long-term assignment with a PR agency where I sharpened my MARCOM skills, interacting with NIH and CDC clients, and drafting and editing promotions plans, creating deliverables, and performing media outreach to local and national news outlets.

I also worked for a national banking association where I drafted content for the organization’s daily internal e-newsletter, coordinated media calls, and managed social media channels.

Kate and Melanie have a knack for placing people in gigs that utilize their current talents but also provide them with opportunities to learn about new subjects outside their areas of expertise. I highly recommend them and PRofessional Solutions for organizations and MARCOM professionals seeking new work.”

“I find your staff to be flexible, warm, quick starters who can quickly jump in and add value. Peter took over some work that would have really sunk my team – he worked with grace and skill.”

Alicia Aebersold, Associate Director for Communications & Consumer Engagement, Aligning Forces for Quality



Ryan McKenna

“When I needed something to break with my job search, Kate and Melanie were there for me.

Twice in my professional career I have called upon their services and both times PRofessional Solutions came through for me. It is said that timing is everything but I believe being well-prepared brings its own luck. Part of my preparation in returning to the workforce involved a call to PRofessional Solutions–if only for a much-needed confidence boost.

The results speak for themselves:  Kate and Melanie quickly matched my skill set to an opportunity and six months later that opportunity became my new full-time job. My family and I are in their debt.

Whatever kind of communications work you may be looking for, temporary or temporary-to-permanent, PRofessional Solutions will give you the best opportunity to showcase your skills.

Thank you Kate and Melanie and PRofessional Solutions!”

Ryan McKenna, Public Affairs Specialist, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

“Kate has so many talents and one of the attributes I value most is her sound judgment.

She has an innate skill for assessing people and how they will best function in the right environments.

She’s definitely the person to contact if you are in need of an exceptional communicator for any of your projects.”

“Kate is a well-connected industry leader in PR staffing. Her sound judgment, ability to match the right candidate to the job, and integrity are unparalleled.

I have worked with her as a client and on a local board and have found that she always goes the extra mile.  She exemplifies the best standards of the industry.

I recommend PRofessional Solutions for both temporary and permanent staffing as a trusted firm.”

Christine Banning, MA, CAE, ABC, President, National Parking Association


“When I was laid off years ago and looking for work for over a year, my temp placement by PRofessional Solutions at a PR firm was an absolute lifesaver. For about six months, I was able to use my skills in writing, messaging and pitching. I secured media coverage for the firm’s clients, helped launch the Capital Wheel at National Harbor, contributed to the National Harbor website and its summer event publicity. And my supervisor became a reference who helped get me my current job. A win-win if ever there was one!”

Ronnie Kweller, Director of Communications, Emerald Cities Collaborative
