About Me

Brianne Miers, Principal

I established Kind Communications in July 2013 to help small and mid-sized non-profit organizations, social enterprises and small businesses get the most out of their limited marketing and communications budgets.

I previously led the non-profit practice of Solomon McCown & Company, a Boston-based public affairs firm, where my clients included some of the city's largest non-profit organizations: Combined Jewish Philanthropies, Historic New England, the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology, and Nellie Mae Education Foundation.

I also served as communications director for the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation (MLAC), where I developed and coordinated the comprehensive outreach strategy for MLAC, the Equal Justice Coalition and 16 civil legal aid programs, and provided capacity-building support and training to program staff.

Prior to moving to Boston in early 2008, I held communications management roles at two international nonprofit organizations in Washington, D.C.: the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF). I began my career at a technology PR firm during the dot com boom.

I hold a master's degree in public administration from The George Washington University School of Business and a bachelor's degree in public relations from Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.

I am based in Boston and also work part-time as a travel content creator, sharing news and stories about travel destinations and brands on my blog, A Traveling Life, and social media channels.
