Breaking news at the Forest Home Media headquarters! Starting as a public relations and marketing intern in the summer of 2014, Catherine Royka has returned to the Forest Home Media team as the public relations manager. In this new role, she will assist with various public relations initiatives for clients through blogging, photography, email marketing and social media content creation and management.
Previously, she held the managing editor position at Robertson Media Group for two years where she supervised three premier Middle Tennessee magazines, Your Williamson, Your Sumner and Distinctively Southern Wedding. Some of Catherine’s key responsibilities were managing local photographers, contributors, writing lifestyle features, covering events, photographing editorial and event spreads, crafting social media messages and designing weekly newsletters.

Working for public relations agencies, big and small, has been part of her communication experience. An account services internship at DVL Seigenthaler brought Catherine to Nashville to start her post graduate career in the PR world. As an intern, she assisted high-level management with various PR initiatives for clients in the food and beverage industry, nonprofit sector, government services and consumer products. Some clients she assisted with included Martha White, White Lily, Jack Daniel’s, Centerstone and the Mid South: National Multiple Sclerosis Society, to name a few.
Catherine is thrilled to expand her knowledge within the public relations and marketing realm at Forest Home Media, working alongside her boss and mentor, Nancy McNulty. The Forest Home Media team also wouldn’t be complete without the incredible talents of Geinger Hill and the stellar summer intern, Emily Griffin.
Thankfully, Emily will continue to be an integral part of the team even when she heads back to Harding University to complete her degree by continuing to assist with video production and PR initiatives providing a strong digital presence for the FHM clients. To keep up with Emily, give her a follow on her Instagram at @PhotoGriffi. And to connect with Catherine via firstname.lastname@example.org.
