Hi! I’m Jamillah. I work with experts and creative entrepreneurs to strengthen brand awareness, that connects them with business boosting opportunities. If you are looking to have your story heard and to grow your brand, then you’re in the right place.

My PR career was jump started during my junior year of college at Michigan State University. Believe it or not, I started college as a science major. Luckily, I was surrounded by great leadership that saw my passions for connecting people, journalism and strategic planning.

Seriously, I never would have made it as a doctor!

After several successful marketing internships, I accepted a corporate communications position during my senior year in undergrad.

Over the years, I proceeded to climb the corporate ladder, obtained my master’s degree from Valdosta State University, and got comfortable as a leader in my office.

Comfortable was mind-numbing and lacked creativity… Comfortable did not have  daily challenges awaiting me… Comfortable was frustrating.

In 2012, I used my PR skillset to establish a networking organization for urban professionals. The organization grew to over 3,500 community members in both Atlanta, GA and Tampa, FL.  The organization was best known for its unique monthly events and ability to successfully promote small business owners.

Having created something so valuable for others and myself, I got laser focused on taking control of my future by only doing what I loved.

I became a full-time entrepreneur in May of 2015! Now my clients are industry thought leaders, experts, business coaches and creative entrepreneurs – like myself, who are most interested in turning their dreams into reality through innovative ideas, services and products.

The tagline, “Befriend Your Brand”, is my core belief. I work with black-owned businesses and startups to build their brand recognition. I believe that successful results are within your grasp, and I have a passion for building community leaders. My Atlanta-based public relations and marketing consultancy specializes in lifestyle brands and urban media.
