I started Piqued PR a year out of college, I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur I just didn’t know I would be so young when I became one. As a child I dreamed of owning a dance studio but it wasn’t until a family friend introduced me to PR when I was looking at colleges that this journey started.
With a degree in both communications and fashion merchandising (as well as a minor in French, hello overachiever) I decided to focus on lifestyle PR. With years of retail experience, shopaholic tendencies from spending Saturdays during my childhood shopping with my mom-mom and mom and love of all things luxe, I provide a unique viewpoint.
I understand my clients’ target customer because I am their target customer. I’m very selective in who we work with as I believe it is easier to market a product when you truly believe in the product.
When I’m not working behind my pink Mac you’ll find me perusing the racks of my favorite boutiques, completing home project for my fixer upper I lovingly call #PatriciasPalace or snuggling up with my pups Marty & Miles and my husband Will.
