Rebecca is the founder and principal at Rebecca Mead Communications, where we specialize in marketing strategies, brand development, and website design. We have been fortunate to work with clients and projects of all shapes and sizes, but our passion is for smaller organizations, non-profits, and individuals who value professional marketing and design but might not have the resources to hire a large traditional agency. We love nothing more than to champion small organizations, encouraging them to build bold businesses.
