Mill Valley, CA – July 18, 2012 – JAM Media Collective, a boutique public relations agency specializing in outdoor, bike, accessories and eco-friendly consumer products, announces the addition of Amy May to its team of public relations professionals.
Recently relocating to Portland, OR from Whitefish, MT, May brings years of experience representing top brands within the outdoor community.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to join a team of such accomplished ladies. The Julies have a phenomenal track record within the outdoor industry of representing authentic and innovative brands,” May said. “We have a shared passion for building and maintaining relationships with media and I look forward to spreading the good word about our amazing clients!”
