Influence with integrity.
My homemade banana pudding has always been a conversation starter. Over dessert and ice cold milk, my grandfather, “Uncle Edison,” taught me the power in standing on your values. He demonstrated how character and morals, at our very core, define us. Our integrity can influence those around us.
I watched Uncle Edison influence with integrity, and take charge of any room he entered. I know that when I enter a room, too, my values speak volumes, I am confident in who I am, and I have the power to influence through my words.
Named for my grandfather and his birthplace in Oklahoma, I launched Gladstone & Main Public Relations with a commitment to sow good seeds in the world and partner with reputable brands that do the same.
