Linda Collier

With a decade of communications and public relations experience under her belt, Linda brings a diverse set of experiences to the team. Linda credits her upbringing on a family farm for her food and culinary focus and passion.

Linda has successfully led the PR efforts of many leading brands. Most recently, Linda has driven public relations efforts for Reser’s Fine Foods, the largest U.S. manufacturer of prepared deli foods as well as Rejuvenation, the largest U.S. manufacturer of lighting and house parts. Top PR “wins” include client appearances on The Food Network’s Unwrapped and How’d That Get on My Plate shows. Linda has also scheduled successful press tours with top consumer publications including Martha Stewart Living, House Beautiful, Everyday with Rachael Ray, Country Living, Interior Design and This Old House.

Previous clients include Moonstruck Chocolate Company (yes, her chocolate dream came true!), where Linda secured national print, television, and radio coverage, organized promotional events, and managed the corporate donation program. Linda is also skilled at developing and launching products aimed at the "mom market." She led marketing activities for Blue Lake Children's Publishing, where she created a PR program including promotional materials, media training and media outreach. These efforts were vital in helping the firm establish a national reputation and secure new distribution deals.

Linda led the public relations efforts for SMART (Start Making A Reader Today), Oregon's largest volunteer early literacy program and worked at Fleishman-Hillard International Communications providing strategic counsel for clients including VISA, Amazon.com, Nautilus, and Sun Microsystems.
