Their stories ...
The range of public relations efforts for these individuals and organizations is indicative of the diversity of my clientele. Here’s a small sampling of who they are:
Friends of Ganondagan: PR and Marketing
Rochester Contemporary Arts Center: Publicity

Friends of Ganondagan is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) Corporation created in 1989 as an educational partner to the Ganondagan State Historic Site. Located in Victor, New York, it is the only New York State Historic Site dedicated to Native Americans, and the only Seneca town developed and interpreted in the United States.
For years, ABPR has worked as The Friends’ marketing/PR consultant to help honor and promote Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) history and culture and strengthen traditions through its inspirational and transformational programming.
Children Awaiting Parents/the Donald J. Corbett Adoption Agency (CAP) is a Rochester, NY-based, national non-profit dedicated to finding loving, forever families for children waiting the longest in foster care. CAP works closely with families through the entire adoption process, from pre- through post-adoption services.
As CAP’s public relations and media specialist, ABPR is responsible for publicizing CAP’s events and news, writing its collateral materials—ensuring that it all correctly reflects its brand—its social media, and is part of CAP’s strategic planning and development team.
Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo) is a venue for the exchange of ideas and a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) founded in 1977. As a center for thoughtful contemporary art, RoCo provides unique encounters for audiences and extraordinary opportunities for artists.
ABPR has worked on publicity for a number of RoCo exhibits and related community projects, namely Question Bridge: Black Males; No Soil Better: Art & the Living Legacy of Frederick Douglass; the annual, iconic 6x6 international small art phenomenon (2015-present), and RoCo’s 40th Anniversary.
