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.”
- Ana Neale, Owner at Car Insulatation UK

Values: honesty, service, competence & kindness
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.
