Name: Carrie Gilbreth

What I love most about working in PR: The power of persuasion and how communication influences people to live better, work harder and play more.
How life has prepared me for the world of PR: I was raised to be loyal to where you came from and always help those around you. With more than a decade of experience working for national brands and commuting, my backyard came calling. We opened an office in the Inland Empire and today we bring our national expertise to our own region.
Projects I’m most proud of: “21 Means 21” Alcohol Awareness Assembly – Working with Coors to promote no underage drinking in a border town resulted in no alcohol-related accidents during prom season.
The I-215 widening, only one of six $100M+ transportation projects in the nation to be awarded stimulus funding. The project is launching a revitalization of the entire Inland Empire. We put the region on the national radar — and AP, the Wall Street Journal, and even Vice President Biden and Congress took note.
My favorite quote: “This too shall pass” – my grandma
When I’m not working, you can find me…: With my family!
