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.”
