When it was time to tell our story, our family vetted several Public Relations firms to search for one with political savvy and courage to stand up for the truth. Kimberly Charles and her team understood the politics that now surround food, and helped us navigate through hundreds of press requests to accurately convey the reality. The process was demanding, but the combination of Charles Communications’ attitude, passion and professionalism allowed us to accomplish our goal with smiles on our faces.
