  • "I would like to thank you for all of your public relations service to the City of Kirkland, WA. Your assistance in promoting Kirkland as a tourism venue over these past several years has been enormously helpful. And I, personally, stepping into the Tourism management position quite recently, have depended heavily on your wise counsel, and wide-ranging experience to guide our program. "We are most appreciative of your promotional efforts on behalf of Kirkland Uncorked, our summertime wine, art and music festival on the waterfront that celebrated its fourth year this past summer. As we go forward, Kirkland Uncorked will become a signature event, thanks to your great tutelage and promotion."

  • “Margot provided support for Denver in the months leading up to the Democratic National Convention. Her expertise in strategic media pitching and her deep contacts in both daytime news and late night comedy led to an amazing series of placements for the city and the Mayor. She's detailed, thorough, and tenacious - all of the best qualities in a top-notch publicist. I'd hire her again in a second.”
