With more than a decade of experience in public relations and business communications, I am dedicated to serving my clients’ needs from strategy to implementation. I specialize in working with small business and non-profit associations/organizations, because a limited budget, full schedule, or small staff shouldn't keep professional communication services out of your reach.
My passion is teaching and speaking on communications topics. I've taught communication workshops at Meredith College, spoken to hundreds of landscape professionals on behalf of the NC Landscape Contractors' Licensing Board, and most recently started social media workshops for businesses.
Before launching Kim Strazisar Communications, LLC in September 2014, I spent six years as Communications Director of the North Carolina Nursery & Landscape Association (NCNLA). I was responsible for developing, coordinating, marketing and publishing all NCNLA publications and advertising, along with grant writing, and event planning and management.
For four years I worked as an account executive at The Rossman Group (now Truscott Rossman) in Lansing, Michigan, providing public relations services for multiple clients including The Michigan Oil & Gas Association (promoting Michigan Trust Fund Sites), DTE Energy (fighting energy deregulation), and Children’s Trust Fund of Michigan (raising awareness and funds for child abuse prevention). I was awarded the "Best in Show" PACE Award by the Central Michigan Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America for my work for The Michigan Oil & Gas Association.
My communication experience all started at The Phoenix Group (now Minacs Analytics) providing market research support for automotive clients like Daimler Chrysler.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Public Relations and Political Science from Western Michigan University.
I am a member of the Public Relations Society of America, and serve on NCPRSA's InSpire Awards Committee.
Empowering people to improve their communication skills is my passion.
