“I had the pleasure of working with the Pam on the launch of my book, Obsessed: Building a Brand People Love from Day One. Pam is one of the most diligent, organized, and enthusiastic PR professionals I have ever encountered. Releasing a book is a nerve-wracking endeavor, then factor in a global pandemic, but Pam was there to support me, and the book’s success, every step of the way. She immediately grasped the material and came up with all sorts of strategic and creative angles to pitch. She tirelessly followed up with reporters in one of the most difficult news cycles imaginable, adjusting on the fly as new curveballs were thrown our way. And she was a joy to work with, removing so much of the stress from the process. After working so hard on my book, I am so grateful that I had Pam to help bring it into the world!”
