PR Consultant (part-time)

This Is My Brave is growing by leaps and bounds. We're looking to add a part-time PR Consultant to our team. We estimate this to be about 20 hours of work per month. The goal for this position is to land us in the national media and local media where we're holding shows (20 planned this year, 16 remaining).

Our last big media hits were in August of 2016 when we were featured in a 4-page article in O, The Oprah Magazine and Washington Post. With the national conversation surrounding the opioid crisis and the state of society's mental health in general, this is an exciting opportunity for a seasoned PR professional. Preference is that this consultant be local to the Northern Virginia area so that in-person meetings can take place when necessary.
