Meet the Team

Gillian S.

Gillian is not your average publicist. In fact, nothing about her has ever been average- she always thinks outside of the box (like the time she was a portable phone for Halloween in the third grade). Her creativity coupled with a keen sense for marketing help her to continuously propel clients into the headlines. She is a savvy problem solver with a ‘can-do’ attitude, and twenty-four prestigious industry accolades to her name.

Gillian has over a decade of public relations and marketing experience working with businesses, brands, celebrities and experts across a broad range of categories including consumer products, electronics, fashion, entertainment, travel, real estate, tech, food & beverage, health & wellness, retail, licensing and non-profit.

She is the recipient of two PR News Rising Stars Awards, PRSA Exceptionals Under 35 Award, and was recently named to the NJBIZ 40 Under 40 list.

Lisa M.

Lisa leads GSPR’s clients in the lifestyle space and manages client exposure for major brands, including Green Giant, Bear Mattress and Ortega. She has been helping GSPR clients make headlines since joining the team in 2017 as an intern, when she ‘pitched’ in on the award-winning PR campaign for Green Giant’s world record-setting green bean casserole.

Lisa is the recipient of a PR News Rising Star Award, and the inaugural PRSA-NJ Rising Star Award.

Jessica R.

Jessica loves an underdog. It’s no wonder she manages GSPR’s startup accounts including BUBLUV and Kess. Her business pitching and storytelling skills have landed major product placements for GSPR clients, including segments on Live with Kelly & Ryan and FOX News, and features in The Wall Street Journal.

In the startup world, no day is ever the same, which keeps Jessica on her toes! She loves successfully launching new products in the media for companies of all sizes.

Natalie S.

Natalie is a multi-tasking rock star. She supports some of GSPR’s largest accounts by compiling detailed research, targeted media lists, thoughtful influencer and traditional media pitches, and press releases.

Most recently, Natalie began spearheading all baking brands accounts at the agency. The results of her research and creative pitch writing are undeniable, and she has helped clients land prominent features in Us Weekly, Refinery29, and Delish-just to name a few!

Athena S.

Athena joined GSPR as in intern in 2018- she was so fabulous, we scooped her up as a full-time employee immediately upon graduation. Athena manages the key influencer programs for the agency, and spearheads much of the team’s media outreach.

Samantha H.

Samantha is a stellar media relations strategist who has never met a product she can’t find a creative pitching angle for. Her ability to pinpoint the perfect media to pitch and craft compelling stories has helped her secure national media coverage for her clients on CBS Mornings, People, and The Late Late Show with James Corden- to name just a few.

Clover the Cav

Clover is GSPR’s resident celebrity, and she will make sure you know it.

While most dogs settle for a life of leisure, Clover opts for stardom. She has her own agent, and has landed feature TV roles- such as Joker on the CBS series ‘Evil.’ Don’t believe us? It’s okay, no one ever does. Here’s a clip of her in action.

Shay M.

Shay is the newest member of the GSPR team. She joined us in 2022 as a PR Assistant.

Shay is a graduate of the University of Delaware where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication. As PR Assistant, she is tasked with media research and reporting.
