Audrey has more than a decade of experience in all facets of marketing communications including developing brand identity and management tactics, creating strategic partnerships and implementing integrated campaigns. She is a highly effective communications strategist who is most in her element when helping clients identify ways to tell their story and engage their audiences.
“It always involves a lot of listening, researching and understanding where the client is and ultimately where they want to be,” she says. “What are their challenges? What solutions can we propose to meet those challenges, and how can we take them to the next level?”
Audrey has had a hand in creating success for many clients including the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, the NextFifty Initiative and Ford Motor Company. She led a media relations effort for Ford and its local dealers, securing exposure on every local television affiliate and more than 90 percent of newspapers in Florida. The team acquired more than 800 media hits in just two years, resulting in increased purchase consideration and sales.
Audrey excels in advertising negotiations. In two years, she secured more than $1 million in bonus advertising impressions on behalf of the Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling and CareerSource Florida. The result was an increase in calls to the 888-ADMIT-IT helpline and visits to employflorida.com.
