I've worked with Madra on a number of shoots, and can attest that she is the consummate professional. She always goes the extra mile to make sure everything runs smoothly -- from finding the perfect prop to making everyone comfortable on set. Her knowledge, resourcefulness, and positive attitude make her a joy to work with.

Madra has a talent for connecting like-minded, creative, awesome people. The relationships I've formed through Madra extend beyond on-going work relationships into friendships. I'm really stoked to have someone like Madra on my team!

M Public Relations is the most effective and reliable team of marketing professionals that I've ever worked with, and I've worked with many over the years. When it's about my company's image, branding or marketing efforts, M Public Relations is the first phone call I make.
Journalists work with a lot of PR firms. Some good, some not so good. M Public Relations is definitely in the “good” column. They respond in a timely fashion when I need a fact checked, a photo provided or a source wrangled. When they send me a pitch I know it is tailored to me, and not sent to 35 competing publications at the same time. They’re consummate professionals who are loads of fun to worth with, as are their clients.

Madra McDonald is a rock star. She knows that public relations is more than pitching -- it's about developing relationships. I always look forward to hearing news about her clients, and know that I can go to her any time with questions and she will respond to them promptly and with helpful information. Madra is an excellent storyteller, understands the needs of media and clients, and is a savvy PR practitioner. I always look forward to the next call from her!
Deputy Editor, Southern Living
When I decided to open a new gallery I immediately chose M Public Relations to lead me through the process of launching our brand and announcing our new location. Madra and her team literally took care of every detail from photos shoots to flower arrangements and made our opening a seamless success all the while maintaining a great attitude and open communications. MPR has an amazing client and contact list to speak for her and I highly recommend MPR to any of my friends to hire for any pr projects!

Every business needs a Madra.

Madra has become a trusted source who earned her credibility by understanding what I need as a journalist and an editor, and helping me deliver just that. She is always honest and accurate, and never pushes the wrong information to plug a client that isn't relevant to my needs. Her pitches are thoughtful, timely, and tailored for me—they stand out among the hundreds of laughably irrelevant email blasts that I have to sort through every day. I think that sort of approach serves both clients and media well.

As with most young companies, when we started we faced the challenge of building our business and our brand with very limited resources. We chose to partner with M Public Relations and that became a pivotal move toward the success of our business and in building and marketing our brand to new heights. I am forever grateful to Madra and her capable team for the immense value they’ve added to the success of our business at its most critical time.

Madra is one of the few public relations professionals I’ve worked with that makes a concerted effort to tell her clients’ stories. Mass emails and blanketed press releases are not her style. She studies the publication at hand, and, as a result, her pitches are targeted and well-developed with the individual person and magazine in mind. This makes my job as an editor easy. I trust Madra and always look forward to her emails in my inbox.

MPR's Madra McDonald has raised the standard of public relations in the fast-growing areas of Destin and Santa Rosa Beach. Ever so stylish in person, the beauty of her personality is reflected through her distinctive marketing strategies in a modern day world of not just PR, but lifestyle storytelling.

We have enjoyed many years working with M Public Relations. Madra and her team are always thinking ahead and searching for a new way to put out our ‘Pura Vida’ message. It has been a great experience we will continue for years to come.
