Kate Marlys emerged on the public relations scene over ten years ago when she launched www.PhillyPRGirl.com, her successful special events blog, with the goal of keeping readers in-the-know about “all things” Philly. Within two years of starting her blog and throwing her own networking events, Kate expanded her brand to include a full-service public relations company. Philly PR Girl LLC offers a full range of services including event planning, influencer marketing, digital and social media, public relations, web and graphic design. The Philly PR Girl brand was built on the principles of networking and relationship building. Kate has organized and executed events varying in size nationwide and has built a strong network of connections throughout the United States. Kate has been featured in Philadelphia Style Magazine, Metro Philadelphia, Philadelphia magazine and on Fox29’s Good Day Philadelphia and NBC10. Kate is frequently booked to speak on topics such as public relations, social media, and the importance of networking. Kate’s speaking engagements include Temple University and Temple’s Small Business Development Center, City of Philadelphia’s Commission for Women Entrepreneur Summit, PA Conference for Women, Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, and numerous others. In 2018 Kate then expanded her business endeavors and opened Photo Pop Philly. Photo Pop, Philadelphia’s first interactive art pop up, had three exhibits featuring local artists. Combining her love for Philadelphia and Social Media, Kate created something special for the city of Philadelphia, and today she continues to be a trailblazer in the city.
