Pressley’s love of writing shows in her work as Alexander Haas’ independent writing consultant. She uses language to inspire people to give, purchase or act, and she meets client expectations in substance, deadline and budget. Pressley’s writing fortes include marketing collateral (brochures, direct mail), digital content (case studies, product profiles, press materials) and specialty fundraising collateral (case for support).
Pressley graduated from Rhodes College in 1991 with a degree in History. She went on to work in Marketing and Communications for the Pitkin County Bank and the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games before coming to Alexander Haas as a Campaign Manager and Consultant in 1996. During her six years with the firm, she managed campaigns for the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta Opera, The Carter Center, Georgia Council on Economic Education, High Museum of Art, Literacy Action, South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts, and Trees Atlanta. In 2002, Pressley formed her own independent communications company, PHP Communications, and has since remained a close Alexander Haas partner.
