MYPR has brought to the VLMDAC fresh, innovative ideas for more effective PR."

-Beth Slifer, Chair, Vail Local Marketing District Advisory Council

I’ve been working very regularly with Kristin for 15 years, at Vail Resorts, Ritz Carlton, Destination Hotels, and now with her own company. That professional longevity is no coincidence – plenty of other PR people have come and gone. The reasons are simple – a high degree of professionalism, creativity, and responsiveness. She knows what to pitch and when, rather than just throwing a bunch of stuff out to see what sticks, and then supports it with first-rate follow up. All of that makes my work a lot easier, and I look forward to the next 15 years.”

Kristin is a very rare combination of talent, drive, business acumen, grace, creativity, savvy, daring and professional humility all rolled into a package that gets it done – always! She has the ability to launch a business, a company or an idea and do so to achieve results. She’s a unique voice of reason that has a very palatable way of ensuring that public and media relations are effective and successfully communicate the right messages to the right audiences at the right time.

-John Spomer, Managing Director, The Driskill Hotel

I’ve been fortunate to work with Kristin and MYPR on a regular basis and collaborate on projects and opportunities for Vail year round. Kristin’s years of experience in the travel and hospitality industries allow her to bring countless ideas and insightful recommendations to the table. Her thorough and organized nature ensures that assignments – whether media itineraries, event plans or the like – are always flawless, clear and comprehensive. I hope to continue working with Kristin and MYPR for years to come."

Kristin convinced me that Vail was THE place to be during the summer—and perfect for the magazine I was writing for at the time. After a tour of the rivers on my first fly fishing trip, I was officially a fan—not only of Vail but also of Kristin for her warmth and friendliness that represented the mood of the area to a tee.

-Valerie LaTona, Former Editor-In-Chief, Shape Magazine

For well over a decade now, Kristin and her team have been the PR pros I turn to for so many needs. Be it help in pulling together a major feature or input for an obscure (but necessary) piece, MYPR always delivers. I can say with confidence Kristin is among the best in the business, and I know when I call her or she calls me, I'll get what I need to make my story sing.

For nearly seven years, Kristin created a very strategic and contemporary public relations program for DH&R. She was a tremendous resource for media leads, trends and creative, newsworthy ideas for the DH&R collection of hotels and resorts. Her efforts have generated significant awareness for DH&R and the individual properties and positioned DH&R among the top independent hospitality operators in the country with trade and national media.”
