About Us

Kim PhotoKimberly Angell, Principal 

Kim is the founder of Wish Public Relations and has over 15 years of experience in technology public relations and communications. She started Wish in order to bring a more intimate and effective approach to startup PR. The media landscape is increasingly complicated and there are endless avenues that can be pursued for exposure. It requires deep expertise to navigate and identify the most impactful routes within the finite resources of a startup. Kim enjoys being hands on with clients, something that becomes elusive at larger agencies. Clients that partner with Kim and Wish Public Relations have the benefit of working directly with senior, tenured PR professionals. Plus, since Wish only takes a few select clients at a time, Kim and her team remain steeped in their clients’ businesses and goals. Being hands on with clients makes the team – and therefore the results – much better.
