Marie Gewirtz – Public Relations Consultant
Marie_200x250px_v2.jpgMarie Gewirtz is a communications specialist who builds community. Twenty- six years ago, Marie founded Marie Gewirtz Public Relations & Marketing with a mission to preserve agriculture as a way of life. She and her team share the belief that by planting the seeds of preservation through marketing campaigns that inform and inspire, they can help farmers sustainably keep the land in agriculture for generations to come.  Marie helps clients to identify their core message and translate their individuality into highly effective marketing and PR campaigns. She believes the very best marketing translates the essence of a place, its people and their craft into a language that resonates and endures for the lifetime of a brand.

Beginning her career as an educator, Marie taught Spanish in a Los Angeles Montessori school, which led to the creation and ultimate sale to McGraw-Hill Publishers of El Señor Esquelto, a bilingual educational program.  Then, as a music publisher for a CBS subsidiary, Marie connected talented, emerging writers to the artists and producers capable of bringing their song to the ears of the world. Marie has taught marketing and public relations at Santa Rosa Junior College since 1990. She also leads marketing and public relations seminars throughout the country.
