Theresa Freed
Communications Specialist

Expertise

Public Relations

Maintaining open communications, both internally and externally, is essential to building a positive brand. I have extensive experience in managing all agency communications for one of the largest State departments in Kansas.

Crisis Management

A critical function of managing communications in a political environment is understanding and tackling crisis communications. Social service agencies are often at the center of controversy. Understanding how to effectively manage a crisis is a primary responsibility.

Media Relations

As an experienced journalist, I do not see the media as the enemy. My approach consists of building positive relationships with reporters that are built on mutual respect, professionalism and trust.
