3 communicators you should know (including my favorite freelancer)

You know you're doing well when great people around you are doing well--and I'm fortunate to have three friends who are having great success. They are all communicators you should know, for many reasons. So please meet:
  • Becky Ham, who is, hands down, my favorite freelance writer. In my recommendation on her brand-new website, I call her "my secret writing weapon. She’s everything you dream of, but rarely get all at once in a freelance writer: ridiculously fast and accurate, requires minimal direction, produces sparkling-clean copy that requires almost no editing, and takes the time to figure out the tone and voice needed....She’s tops. Don’t hesitate." And I'm almost sorry I just shared that. Find her at beckydham[at]gmail[dot]com.
  • Tom Evelyn, who directs news and media relations for Bucknell University, a client of mine. He's moving to St. Lawrence University, where he'll be the new Vice President for Communications. Smart writers and communicators might want to start getting in touch with him now about opportunities and ways to work together, since he's a fantastic person to work with. You can find Tom on Twitter as @tevelyn.
  • Hillarie Turner worked for me at the American Chemical Society and she'll always have a spot on that fantasy communications team I keep rearranging in my head--I'd work with her anytime. Now an account supervisor handling health PR with Environics Communications here in Washington, DC, Hillarie's started her posts on the company blog with this very nice one about my mentoring. Right back at ya, I say.
