Media Escort/Event Planner
Please scroll down to see Current Event!
Need an escort, a fixer, or provisioner for your Boston-based events? I will ensure your publicity dollars are well-spent.
Jacqueline Church escorted my cookbook author for several days, keeping her on schedule for back-to-back appearances and local media spots. She also helped secure multiple local media features, including a lengthy author interview in The Boston Globe. She displayed a remarkable grasp of detail (grocery shopping, travel logistics) while keeping the big picture in mind (exposure for the book during and after the tour).
I wholeheartedly recommend her to other publicists/agents in need of a Boston media escort.

Jacqueline was a wealth of knowledge and a great source while attending the Boston International Seafood Show 2013 as the chef for the BC Government Pavilion. She assisted me at last minute notice, and brought to the exhibit booth an outstanding energy and culinary expertise and help I definitely needed at this important international showcase.

The key to a successful event plan is to understand both the short-term objectives and long-term goals. I work with clients to develop a clear understanding of both. Is this a fundraiser or friend-raiser? What are the best ways to engage the ideal audience? What are some inventive ways that bring people together and get them engaged in your cause, how to have them adopt your goals as their own?
If you have aligned the right people, communicate with authenticity, plan with clarity and always think of the opportunity you are providing for others to get involved in meaningful and productive ways, then you will have a successful event. I can help you do that.
I had the pleasure and great fortune to work with Jacqueline on the inaugural event for Friends of MarViva Foundation recently. While on the surface the assignment was about event planning, Jacqueline quickly realized that in order for the event to be a success, her broad range of skills would need to be brought to bear. She enthusiastically and wholeheartedly rolled up her sleeves to help me refine the organization’s brand and value proposition, develop collateral material, while also tapping into her vast network of chefs and sustainability advocates. If you are looking for support to organize an event, I strongly encourage you to consider Jacqueline. Keep in mind that you will get more than you bargained for, and that will be a big plus for your event!

When enviro issues X dinner plate? Restore, recover, eat oysters! Powerful 40 min film, spec guests+You? http://bo.st/1aCNgHP
It seems every restaurant boasts a dollar oyster night and this once mysterious ritual – squeeze of lemon, dip of mignonette, slurp or chew? – has become a mainstay of every celebration, every night out.
The Oyster Century Club© is tasting our way through 100 varieties.
At the same time oysters are becoming the most popular excuse to gather, we’re hearing more ominous news daily about this once thriving and abundant keystone species.
- Vibrio parahaemolyticus causing oyster farm closures,
- Warming oceans temperatures,
- Loss of reefs that protect us from storms.
But what do these issues have to do with favorite dinner?
Oysters Protect and Nourish Us.
Oysters are a keystone species, providing coastal habitat, protective reefs and filtering waters. A single oyster can filter 50 gallons of water per day. But even they can be overwhelmed.
When and Where Can I Learn What’s Being Done to Save the Oyster?
Join The Oyster Century Club: Monday Sept. 16 at Les Zygomates Wine Bar for a special screening of Shellshocked: Saving Oysters to Save Ourselves.
From the oyster’s glory days (over a million served – daily in New York City!) through their decline, to the restoration projects happening right here in Boston.
We’ll be joined by special guests:
- Dr. Anamarija Frankic, Associate Director of the School for the Environment at UMass, Boston, will discuss the exciting new field of biomimicry and how it can be used to restore our coastal environment. Professor Frankic is also an adjunct professor at the Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography in Croatia and has been awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to establish a biomimicry course and the LivingLabs program in Croatia.
- Andrew Jay, President – Massachusetts Oyster Project – dedicated to restoring oysters to the Commonwealth’s estuaries. Mass Oyster has four primary activities- oyster shell recycling, education, direct oyster restoration, supporting other restoration programs
We’ll Taste “Merroir”, Shucking and Sharing with Two Maine Farmers:
- Nonesuch oysters - Abigail Carroll, the accidental oyster farmer. See her TEDxYouth alk here: life lessons and getting your hands dirty, finding joy. [LINK: ]
- Frank & Tonyia Peasley – Little Island Oysters – on the Bagaduce River in Maine.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to taste two expressions of merroir – meet the growers – chat with experts on the oyster restoration projects and view the brief film.
Seats are limited, Register now.

The Oyster Century Club – modeled after wine century clubs where members tally their sips as they taste their way through 100 varieties of grapes. We’re learning about oysters, meeting new friends, exploring new oyster bars and discovering how oysters both nourish and inspire us.
