Today, PRWeek announced the 2017 Champions of PR, and H+K’s Jamie Tinsley is included among the 40 accomplished women on the list.

Jamie’s energy is contagious and she is truly loved by every client and colleague who meets her. During her 14-year H+K tenure, Jamie has worked on a variety of client accounts in the healthcare, automotive, and energy sectors. She has led award-winning media campaigns and her work has been recognized by the Texas PRSA, International Association of Business Communicators Houston and PRWeek.  Jamie is also a sought after mentor and she has been actively involved with  H+K’s mentorHER program since its launch in 2015.

I would have pursued an alternative career path if not for this woman, who has taught me valuable lessons in and outside of the workplace,” said Whitney Pineda, senior account executive, H+K Houston. ” She deserves to be recognized for her commitment to women and this industry as she is creating a legacy of future leaders who will pass down this same wisdom and candor that she has given.”

Jamie began her career in public relations as a PR coordinator for a natural gas pipeline company in Houston, Texas. As fate would have it, H+K was brought in as the agency of record to support PR efforts. Jamie made a connection with H+K’s Bronwyn Wallace (a 2016 PRWeek Champion of PR), who eventually encouraged her to interview with H+K – and the rest is history.
