Dre Birskovich started building experience in communications and advertising at a boutique retail ad agency while still an undergraduate. As a publicist for Click, she spends her days making new press contacts (stalking her personal favorites on Twitter), crafting pitches, and brainstorming feature stories. Known in certain circles as “The Mom Whisperer” for her work on family product campaigns ranging from The Lion King to “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic,” Dre navigates the fine line between child-like and childish with professionalism and enthusiasm. From crafts to clips, Dre challenges herself with finding the most appropriate press partner, or the perfect pitch angle for each asset.
When she’s not scouring the Internet for the next social platform to integrate into her outreach, she’s a gossip blog reading, NPR-tuned, Netflix junkie, and thrives on discussions about any entertainment-related subject. She mourns the loss of bygone TV shows like “My So-Called Life,” “Six Feet Under,” “The West Wing,” and, most recently, “Life on Mars.” As for movies, Dre rewinds and re-watches her well-loved Blu-rays of Dazed and Confused, The Cutting Edge, and Sixteen Candles.
