Let's Meet

I'm Katie, an expert public relations and marketing consultant.

Katie Radel founded Ripple Consulting Group to provide public relations and marketing consulting to compassion-focused companies who need to tell their story and have a positive relationship with their audience and community.  We believe that stories and relationships can cause long-term, positive ripple effects.
