About UMU

Redefining Success
At Under My Umbrella (UMU), there are no prefab cookie-cutter solutions — only unique clients, well-defined goals and customized road maps to success. We don’t need to reinvent the wheel— we’ll help your organization fly!

UMU offers all the public relations, marketing, event planning and consulting services you’d expect, and some you might not. Our nimble UMU team is hand-selected. Our clients are carefully chosen too. As a result, we maintain that synergy that makes us so good at what we do. From our staff to our clients, we view everyone “Under Our Umbrella” as family and we feel that is the best kind of networking you can have.

Under My Umbrella is a hybrid organization. We wear many hats and we understand that our clients’ needs are just as unique as our services. This diversity gives us exposure to many experiences and one of our greatest strengths is using we’ve learned in one situation to exceed performance expectations in another. By partnering with a boutique company like Under My Umbrella, you can rely on an inclusive creative process and an unyielding commitment to results.

During an initial consultation, you’ll learn about the innovative and often out of the box tools, strategies and tactics we can employ to help you grow your organization. Simply put, we love logistics. From start-up companies and project launches, organizational branding and community outreach to special events, conferences and social networking, we’ve got everything you need to ensure your success. UMU has an unmatched reputation for diligent, creative, and cost-efficient leadership as well as for implementing eco-minded  best practices that save you money. In preparation for your customized plan, we will recommend specific services based on your unique objectives, organizational identity and budget.

It might sound like a lot, but we pull it all together, “under one umbrella,” so you exceed your goals, leaving others to wonder how you got there. It’s what we do, it’s what we love, and we look forward to sharing it with you.
