Hey! I'm Hannah...

I'm an experienced PR Consultant & Freelancer, helping small - medium-sized businesses land perfectly positioned media & online coverage to boost your brand awareness & generate sales.

I take brands from being loved by few, to irresistible & 'in demand' by many. 

So what makes me different?

 

Well aside from 15+ years experience, it's in my DNA to care.

 

I come from a family with generations of nurses. It's ingrained in me to listen & understand your business needs, & to nurture relationships that will make all the difference to your business.  

 

 

 

“I cannot express how impressed I am with your input and results so far. You are a gem. A real gem to find.”

My story:

 

Since graduating from University with a 2.1 in English, I've spent the last 15+ years helping brands propel their profile through the power of PR. Spreading brand messages amongst key audiences & strategically raising profiles through traditional & digital media.

From managing high profile campaigns for UK government departments & promoting pioneering research on a global scale, to product & service launches - you name it ...I've most probably done it at some point. 

But the summer of 2019 saw a major turning point for me.

I was on a short career break after becoming a mum & uprooting our home from the West Midlands to Leicestershire. Whilst I should have been happy being a lady of leisure, something didn't feel right.

 

I realised I'd lost a huge part of my identity & knew I wasn't quite ready to throw away my little black PR book just yet. 

So at the end of 2019 I set up Hawthorn House, initially as a support service for PR agencies - and later working with SME's directly.

 I love working with brands that give people that 'feel good' factor or make the world a better place.

But even more than that, I love to work with nice people.  So if this this you & you need some professional PR, let's chat.
