For more than eight years I’ve had the honor of working with Beth McRae. From her serving as the 50th anniversary Heart Ball Chair, to her active engagement as a member of the American Heart Association’s board of directors, Beth is always willing and able to share her public relations expertise to help the AHA. In addition to her generous donation of time and talents, Beth has an unbelievable willingness to make time for media opportunities at any given hour, and serve as a spokesperson.

 

As an American Heart Association volunteer Beth is dependable, professional and above all passionate about her commitment to increase the quality of life for all people through the elimination of cardiovascular disease. Her passion is contagious, as is her calm and confident demeanor. It has been nothing short of a huge privilege to work with Beth on many different projects and levels.

 

Because of Beth McRae, the American Heart Association’s visibility has escalated throughout Arizona and country. Her strong sense of commitment is second to none, as is her integrity. It has been nothing short of amazing working alongside Beth! To me she epitomizes that of an outstanding professional woman!

Beth runs a top-notch PR company and was instrumental in helping me spread the word when I launched my new company, Charity Charms, in 2005. She not only provided professional support but the networking and philanthropic support went (and continues to) go above and beyond the professional help she has given me. I highly recommend Beth and her company, The McRae Agency.

Beth is the big idea person. She comes up with wild ideas and fantastic strategies -- and they work! She is a master networker and relationship builder.

I always learned something new when I worked with Beth.

My experience with Beth McRae has been as a service provider and a colleague. I've been able to observe the service she provides clients and the end results her firm has achieved for them. Both have been impressive.

 

 

Beth consistently pushes beyond what is expected, to develop creative plans and then delivers more strategic coverage than expected.
