In 2004, Peterson had moved to Savannah, Georgia after graduating with a B.S. in Communications from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. Marjorie Young, CEO of Carriage Trade Public Relations hired Peterson as a freelance public relations coordinator where she gained hands on experience in the public relations world. She left Savannah in 2005 and moved to Florida and thereafter to Fredericksburg, Virginia. Last July, after Peterson launched her business, Marjorie Young & Cecilia Russo with Cecilia Russo Marketing asked Peterson to join their visibility team as a freelance public relations coordinator.
Carriage Trade Public Relations and Cecilia Russo Marketing are two reputable firms based out of Savannah, Georgia with twenty plus clients and twenty plus years of experience in the business. Peterson has the privilege and pleasure of working with a majority of their combined clients. Businesses use their firms for reputation management and together the visibility team works on positioning clients as the authority in their field to increase their visibility in the community and online with strategic PR web strategies. “I am honored to be a part of their team and the experience and knowledge I have gained is priceless,” said Peterson.
In the past year, Peterson has worked on establishing relationships and partnerships with the Fredericksburg community members and businesses. She has worked on gaining credibility and a reputation by donating her time and services to local non-profits, political campaigns and events. Peterson is currently partnered with several local Fredericksburg area businesses and handles their public relations and marketing needs. “My goal and focus is to help these businesses increase visibility through opportunities and more importantly charitable opportunities”, said Peterson.
Peterson is humbled and thankful for a successful first year in business. She loves having a business that not only allows her to use her education and talents, but that allows her to continue to be a stay at home to raise her children. “I look forward to the next year in business. I hope to establish more partnerships and continue to help my clients increase visibility in the community.”
“As the President of the Board of Directors of MANARC Borne the Battle a non-profit thrift store in downtown Fredericksburg VA that supports local veteran organizations I have been working directly with Myandi Peterson from Peterson Randall Public Relations for the past year as she leads the marketing and public relations efforts for MANARC. Being a 28 year career Marine I am extremely impressed with Myandi’ s initiative and dedication to her clients. She has developed a vast network of marketing relationships and goes out of her way to support her individual client needs above and beyond what is expected. In fact, because of her superior performance in marketing and public relations we have recently expanded her contract to include website management and the creation of a newsletter. I highly recommend Myandi and Peterson Randall Public Relations for your marketing and public relations needs.”
