And What Media Says...
“Rebecca understands journalists' need now more than ever for distinctive news and feature ideas as well as quality images to accompany them. Her rapid response to requests on deadline has been a life-saver while her press releases always include the right balance of intriguing and useful information. She anticipates trends and constantly explores new angles for stories about her clients, while remaining conversant on the larger context and culture that are so helpful for nuanced reporting. Her natural curiosity and appreciation for a wide range of experiences are contagious.”
–Jeanne Cooper, Freelance Feature Writer and Travel Columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle and SFGate.com
“I remember a detailed letter Rebecca wrote to me, early on in my research, in which she didn’t just outline all the new or unsung places to eat around the islands (which itself was tremendously helpful), but also explained the many culinary trends and cultural shifts at play in Hawaii at that moment. This was invaluable. Rebecca obviously “got it,” and really thought like a journalist, such that I had a huge head start when I finally put words to paper. (T+L may actually owe her some royalties!)”
–Peter Jon Lindberg, Editor-at-Large, Travel+Leisure, Saveur
“When working on stories, I regard PR representatives as partners who can suggest fresh angles, valuable resources and interesting interviewees. Time and again, Rebecca has proven to be a consummate professional—someone I can count on to provide what I need to do my job. She knows my readership and understands the importance of meeting deadlines. If she doesn’t have the answers to my questions right off the bat, she keeps digging until she gets them. Moreover, it’s a pleasure to work with her because she’s down-to-earth, cool under pressure and a genuinely nice person who’s committed to doing the best she can to represent her clients and assist journalists.”
–Cheryl Tsutsumi, Travel Writer, Honolulu Star-Advertiser

She's bright, hard working and thoroughly professional. She understands what her clients need but also knows what journalists need to get their stories. She's always quick to return an e-mail and to get information I need, and she understands deadlines. She's a kind, fun and engaging person but also a pro's pro and a hard worker. She's one of the best in the business.”
–Jim Byers, Travel Writer and Photographer

With trip planning, her in-depth and extremely personalized itineraries shows that she does her research in order to provide visiting media with the best possible experiences. Rebecca's willingness to help has always impressed me, as she makes herself available to ensure media have everything and anything they may need pre-trip, during the trip, and post-trip. I always look forward to working together as she makes everything so seamless.”
