Greg is one of my favorite OKC characters they forgot to mention in Boomtown and not just because he is on top of every art, food and booze story in the metro. I really do love his writing and, please don’t tell him I said this, he’s also a pretty decent fella. When he...

Let’s Meet the Media, OKC! 

My aim with this series is twofold. One, I hope to make life easier for those around me, especially those getting started. And two, I want to help bridge the ever-changing landscape that exists between PR & Media, especially as opportunities...

Bumbershoot PR's success is dependent upon two things: Me continuing to do quality work, and referrals from others. I don't participate in RFPs (which should probably be my next post) and I don't advertise. So my entire lifeline here is basically trusting that people d...

I didn’t plan to write about this trip for a few reasons.

1) It wasn’t a very long trip – just 3 nights.

2) We weren’t planning on doing much of interest to anyone but ourselves.

3) This is an Oklahoma-based PR blog, not a travel blog.

But as it turned out, nearly everythi...

I recently sat on a panel at the Working Mom Summit. The irony of my having to leave my son’s basketball game at the half to go talk about what a great working mom I am wasn’t lost on me, but I was still happy to be able to do both. (Hashtag there is no such thing as b...

In the spirit of transparency , I hope you like this clip art. I spent $2.99 on it. 

When we get too busy we forget to pause and reevaluate methods and make needed changes. It’s normal, I know. Sometimes I go too fast and forget to listen.

For the past (almost) ten year...

I started Bumbershoot PR in 2009 when my son was just a toddler. I worked from a small desk in our bedroom which was next to his bedroom. I did this to be able to parent how I wanted to parent. To be around. I’m very glad I made that choice. I started to work...

Bumbershoot PR is now operating in its 10th year of business. What? I can’t believe I stayed afloat for so long. But yes, it’s true.

I am back to being a solo practitioner and now I just partner on an as-needed basis with my amazing network of senior level publicists, w...

I’m up in the middle of the night caring for a sick child. Nothing serious, just a back-to-school bug. Andy was up too, getting the recently thrown-up-on things into the wash, shuttling cold rags to the patient, and letting the dogs out for a little rabbit chasing.

It’s been a busy year. Part of that "busy" involves the release of a book I wrote. Yes, I wrote a book. Not a PR book. I wrote a children’s book. It’s about adoption. David Bizzaro illustrated it and Pennycandy Books published it and the official release date is Novemb...
