What students had to say:

I have taken two of your classes through WCC and both have been more than insightful, not to mention helpful. I am making connections right and left with various Bellingham based individuals and organizations, experiencing less self doubt the more I talk about my workplace and job responsibilities, which include PR for the Center for Expressive Arts & Experiential Education. Two weeks ago we had a nice write-up in the Cascadia Weekly and this Thursday there will be a short but sweet piece in Take 5. So thank you for your enthusiasm, helpful materials and honesty. I feel like I am on track. Thanks again. Yours,
Mary Burwell

Thank you for the class on Thursday of Mastering the Art of Free Publicity. Monday I sent a press release out, and today I received a call from the Whatcom Independent wanting to do a story!  I can’t believe all this happened within a week of your class. Damn, you’re good!

“Even after many years of business there is still much to learn! I got a fresh perspective. I realized I need continuity in my ads and that press releases can be very valuable”

I and the members of the Nellie Gerdrum Lodge #41 of the Daughters of Norway would like to thank you
for your Publicity course. As a result of your very thorough and attentive instruction I have been able to develop a strong publicity program for the lodge that is producing solid results in only three months. In addition to attracting new members, which was my original goal, past members are expressing interest and current members are more active participants. Your effervescence and creative problem solving is contagious. Your continuing feed back is invaluable. Thank you.
