Krystal Hart | Brand Strategist

One thing that outsiders are usually unaware of about my industry is the strategy and planning that goes into proper public relations to get meaningful results. Most people come to me seeking services to create a logo, build awareness about a product/project/event, develop a website, increase awareness on social media, or pitch the media.

All of these skills are not a trend in Montessori but have been in practice for more than 100 years. Read more>>
