PAULA KRASIUN-WINSEL

Communications Consultant

she/her

A natural storyteller and wizard with words, Paula Krasiun-Winsel brings messages to life. She is a community organizer and a skilled Communications Consultant with nearly ten years of experience in the non-profit, movement building, and political sectors. She’s dabbled in professional film post production, too.

Effective communication is about so much more than words on a page. It involves developing a strong voice that commands attention in every media interview, written article, graphic, and social media post. Accessibility and intersectionality are at the heart of Paula’s work (and did we mention she has a big heart?). A well-crafted message should not require a dictionary for the average person to understand.

Paula believes in the power of strong relationships built on trust. She can help you grow your online audience and expand your reach through comprehensive strategies and tactics. If you’re wanting to attract media attention or navigate a tough situation, she can guide you through writing and distributing successful media releases and crisis communications.
