“There’s a fine line in publicity between promoting your clients and making writers, editors and consumers feel like they’re being sold. I’ve always felt Katherine was being honest with me. She not only knows her industry, she knows the media and market she’s targeting, and positions her clients accordingly.”

In an industry not always known for it’s sincerity, Katherine brings a breath of fresh air and has managed to make PR personal again. Her genuine interest not only in the success of our PR efforts but in understanding us as people and as clients made working with her a shear pleasure. Having helped us develop from an unknown restaurant to putting us on the map as a dining destination and helping us grow to multiple restaurants, I have no hesitation in recommending Katherine.
