I read in your bio that you’re an independent public relations practitioner and Internet marketer, could you please tell us exactly what you do and what are your job responsibilities?
I am the CEO and Founder of KLPR Group which is a public relations firm. I specialize in generating awareness and interest through an effective PR campaign, by obtaining media coverage that will increase name recognition, visibility and credibility to ultimately make my clients a household name.
Before you started pursuing a career in the field of Public Relations, you were a paralegal?
Not exactly, I was a paralegal then fashion stylist then went on to product placement and finally publicity.
Why did you decided to stop practicing law to pursue a career in the field of Public Relations?
I was laid off my job and took that as an opportunity to pursue something I always loved but was afraid to do. I have always been a creative person and loved fashion so I took a risk and pursued my dreams and thank God it worked out.
