Rebekah Epstein – Publicist
As an NYU college student, Rebekah broke into media at NYLON magazine and Vogue magazine. It was there that she formed tight-knit relationships with national, top-tier media, and got a behind-the-scenes look at how major magazine offices and television studios operate. The lesson? To break through a crowded email inbox, a publicist has to turn their client into an irresistible story, make face-time a top priority, and craft pitches that aren’t just polite – but memorable.Later, Rebekah worked at People’s Revolution (New York Office), the subject of Bravo TV’s “Kell on Earth,” where she continued to interface with national broadcast, print, and online contacts. Her circle of expanding media relationships eventually inspired her to start her own PR company, fifteen media, where Rebekah would go on to represent brands and individuals in fashion, food, lifestyle, books health and beauty.Rebekah has earned placements in a variety of media outlets across print, online, television and radio. including Forbes, People, CNBC.com, Associated Press, Fox News, WWD, The New York Times, Vogue, Teen and many more.
