Laura Krebs Miller joins a group of accomplished professionals from well-known brands and agencies including Havas PR, Weber Shandwick, Bullfrog & Baum, Yahoo, ESPN, Time, Inc., Hilton and many more.

In addition to Krebs Miller’s management role within the company, she continues to display an exemplary media savvy, placing stories in national publications like Women’s Wear Daily, The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. Her work with clients such as Scannapieco Development Corporation, PREIT, Korman Communities, Radnor Property Group, Welcome America, The Kimmel Center and the Democratic National Convention has proven her diverse industry expertise, as well as her penchant for strategic planning and effective publicity tactics.

In addition to her professional achievements, Laura dedicates her personal time to non-profits, including “Mighty Writers,” a Philadelphia-based non-profit that teaches underprivileged children to think and write with clarity to nurture self-esteem, as well as the annual bike run for the “Toni and RJ Foundation,” which has awarded over $44,000 in scholarships to high school seniors who have taken on the cause to prevent distracted driving.

Born in Michigan and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs, Laura graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a B.A. in Journalism and a minor in International Studies. She resides in Old City, Philadelphia with her husband, Jeff, and bulldog, Larry. Laura’s full bio can be viewed here.
