I've worked with Lesley Francis PR at two different organizations now, and both have expanded their reach, prestige, and fund-raising thanks to LFPR's efforts. Although Savannah based, they are perfectly capable of working on regional and national campaigns. I've also admired her esprit de corps and willingness to trust and advance her staff.
