public relations for the creative community
“Sarah Massey’s work made all the difference in getting media coverage for the Push the Envelope, Please! campaign of The Fund for Women Artists. Her strategic thinking and message development were right on target. She also gave us practical tips and training that helped us really capture the attention of the media. Sarah is a gem!”
- Sarah Browning, Associate Director
