Meet 
Bilen Mesfin Packwood, Change Consulting, LLC

You have been in PR for many years.  Please tell us about your company and how long you've been in the PR field?

I have about 16 years of experience in media and communications. My first job out of college was in the communications department of a public television station in Nashville. I spent the first part of my career in journalism, working as a writer, editor and reporter. I crossed over into PR to work for then District Attorney Kamala D. Harris at the San Francisco District Attorney's office. My company, Change Consulting, LLC, was founded about seven years ago, and we provide communications strategy, media relations, social media and content development services.
