Kathleen Meskill, Principal

I’ve developed my communications skills in just about every area of the public relations world, managing media relations, crisis communications, employee communications and engagement, mergers and organizational change, public affairs and litigation communications.

I have dealt with highly sensitive matters in demanding environments, including the U.S. Department of Justice, Diageo, Burson-Marsteller (now Burson Cohn & Wolfe), Rubenstein Associates, the U.S. Department of Education, the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, the Knights of Columbus and presidential and state level political campaigns. I also served as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, which gave me valuable experience in our criminal justice system.

The organizations and individuals with whom I’ve worked have spanned industries and size, and I am able to easily pivot from dealing with reporters and editors from top-tier news publications like The Wall Street Journal, New York Times and Bloomberg to working with industry trade writers, political reporters, gossip columnists, bloggers and more.  I am also able to quickly understand an organization’s culture and communications challenges to help map out an internal communications strategy.
