For many clients, generating greater awareness for their company and their products/services is absolutely critical to their business success. Since 2011, TRG has been fortunate to have Julie, an Emmy-award winning former television reporter, on our side to help clients cultivate strong media relationships, and better tell their stories through blogs, e-newsletter articles, photos, videos, social media, and more.
Julie has a knack for pulling interesting stories out of both people and businesses – and serving them up as content marketing for publications, media outlets, and company websites to help TRG clients get their message across to target audiences and prospective customers. A talented communicator, Julie is able to relate well to clients and help them achieve their marketing goals.
As Julie likes to say, “Everybody has a story. Tell me yours.”

My husband’s father died of acute myeloid leukemia, so in 2012 the family took his love of golf and launched “So Long to Leukemia” (SLTL), an annual tournament at Ironwood Golf Course in Sussex that has raised more than $190,000 for local patients and their families affected by blood cancer. The money also funds research affiliated with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Wisconsin.
