New Client: Happy Wax
Posted by on April 11, 2017 in Client News, Uncategorized | Comments Off

We are so excited to announce our new client, Happy Wax!! Melting > Candles… seriously!! We’ve learned so much these last few weeks about the benefits of melting, and while burning a traditional candle is nice too, I think our office has officially converted!! Happy Wax is an all-natural, mixable, and adorable (!) alternative to traditional wax melts.  The Happy Wax melts, each hand-poured at the company’s headquarters in Durham, North Carolina, feature fun shapes like gummie bears, hearts, signature holiday icons and more. And, they are offered in a variety of wonderful scents from citrus and florals to spicy and holiday-inspired collections. With Happy Wax, a beautiful home (or in our case, office) fragrance that will last, but not overpower, is sure to be enjoyed. Happy Wax melts are also non-toxic, 100% soy and infused with essential oils. Whoop! And, the melts are warmed in Happy Wax’s modern, sleek melters that seamlessly integrate into any décor. Making an adorable gift, or perfect accessory in any bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, nursery or office, Happy Wax products are available at www.HappyWax.com and at retail stores nationwide. Welcome, Happy Wax! We’re so excited to be working with you! -Kerry

We’re 5!

We’re 5!

Maybe you didn’t know this about me, but 8 is my FAVORITE number. I really think it brings me luck. I have subtle 8s in my house, multiple 8s throughout the office, the number 8 is hidden in the Speak Wines logo and on and on and on… Lots of special things have happened to me (coincidentally) on the 8th…. One of those being K. Sutherland PR’s birthday! I just can’t believe we’re 5 already! Seems like only yesterday that I was outside at my in-laws house, watching the sunrise, wondering what my first day “at the office” would be like…. Wondering what the future would bring.   As I think back on the last 5 years, I just can’t help but feel overwhelmingly grateful, happy and proud. So beyond grateful for the #KSPRGirlGang that has made this journey so wonderful…     And, the incredible opportunities that have come my way, because of K. Sutherland PR… including some pretty amazing work trips.   In 5 years, we’ve certainly had a few offices… And, they’ve just been the coolest ever. But, I think our current home in Reno is a keeper!! Especially since I’ve been able to entice this girl to make the move from southern California!!   Even if her time so far as included WAY MORE snow days than normal. (I promise Steph, our winters aren’t usually this insane).   Working for myself has allowed me to create the office culture I’ve always wanted, and yes, it has included the occasional office baby.   And, of course, all of our clients over the years… Just too many to list, but they have each been so special to me for a variety of reasons. I honestly believe we have the best clients, ever. They constantly inspire us, challenge us, excite us and keep this dream moving forward!   Thanks to all of you reading this, everyone who’s ever cared about K. Sutherland PR and helped contribute to what it is today! I appreciate you so much, and look forward to the next 50 years with you! xoxo, Kerry

New Client: We For Dogs

New Client: We For Dogs
Posted by on January 20, 2017 in Uncategorized | Comments Off

Innovating products that strengthen the human-animal bond has been a goal of pet product companies for many years. But, I haven’t seen a product quite like the We Leash, the preliminary product offered by our new client, We For Dogs! This new product eliminates the pulling and dragging of a typical leash and collar, all while connecting the dog and owner unlike ever before. The concept is so simple, yet makes such an obvious, positive impact on the dog and owner alike. Jennifer Arnold, New York Times Best Selling Author and creator of the Bond-Based Approach is leading this new venture, and we’re so excited to be the PR agency selected to bring their exciting new products to market!! We For Dogs, welcome to the team! We’re so happy you’re here! -Kerry

SNOWED IN!

SNOWED IN!
Posted by on January 18, 2017 in Uncategorized | Comments Off

Weather hit the Reno/Truckee/Tahoe area by storm this last week…and there is more coming tomorrow!  In only a matter of days, snow accumulated to 5-6 FEET (yes, our lunch breaks consisted of lots of shoveling).  With roads and freeways closed, Stephanie and I have literally been snowed in up in Truckee with sometimes very limited power and internet access. But it hasn’t just been us in Truckee having to deal with weather drama, Reno declared a “State of Emergency” due to extreme flooding risks too… And, naturally our (adorable) office is just feet from the river. While the flood threats made it very difficult to make it into the office (road closures, etc), we’re happy to report we’re safe and dry (for now)! We have had to work remotely lately, and appreciate everyone’s understanding while we let Mother Nature settle down. If you haven’t been able to reach us on the office phone line, please email! We’ll get back to you as soon as possible! A new storm is hitting the ground tonight with snow accumulating a fresh, powder layer of 4 feet…let’s see how buried we get this time…Until then, let’s keep in touch via email and stay warm! -Jill
