The Queen of PR

Lisa Kimball was here today teaching Paul, our Community Outreach Coordinator, the PR ropes. Lisa, a long-time friend of HSP, has 30 years of public relations and marketing experience and has been kind enough to volunteer and offer her sage advice.

“I was reading the website one day and saw HSP needed volunteers in the writing department. I wanted to help publicize all the great opportunities at HSP,” Lisa said. She contacted us and since then, she has been advising Paul with her PR specialty.

“My husband and I have been friends of HSP since our son, Doug, volunteered to help with the Children’s Birthday Project as an Eagle Scout,” said Lisa. “We’ve been supporters since then.”

Their sons are now grown and Lisa is helping us more than ever.

“It’s been extremely rewarding,” Lisa said. “Everything we’ve talked about has been coming true. More Daily Herald coverage and a spot on Wheaton College radio – it’s been great.”

We could not be more grateful that she has volunteered her expertise. It has helped HSP gain publicity in big ways, and more publicity means more support. A huge thank you goes out to Lisa!
