Taylor earns public relations accreditation

Kathie Taylor, APR, CAPM, managing partner of In Plain Sight Marketing LLC, earned her Accreditation in Public Relations from the Public Relations Society of America following a comprehensive examination and peer review of a public relations project portfolio.

According to the Public Relations Society of America, individuals who achieve accreditation exhibit mastery of current strategic communications practices, commitment to lifelong learning and ethical standards, as well as elevating the public relations practitioner as a leader and mentor in a competitive field.

Taylor said the rigorous curriculum stretched her knowledge and improved her mastery of the craft.

“I am a better practitioner today after going through the accreditation process, which was both grueling and rewarding,” she said. “I am proud to offer our clients a more organized way of aligning their overall business goals with our marketing strategies through thorough research, analysis and planning.”

In Plain Sight Marketing LLC, a full service public relations and marketing communications agency, celebrates its sixth anniversary in Carson City this month.
