Getting to Know Your Offleash Team: Becca Krumholz


Where are you from?
I grew up in Burlington, Wisconsin a small town outside Milwaukee. It’s also known as Chocolate City, USA because of the large Nestle chocolate factory located right on the edge of town. Others know it as “Tony Romo’s hometown”.

I went to college at University of Wisconsin-Madison studying strategic communication, while occasionally jumping around at Badger football games and eating anything cheese-related.

What got you interested in PR?
I became first interested in PR while watching the TV series Sex in the City. I thought Samantha’s job was so glamorous. However, I realized that’s not reality and became further interested in “real PR” after taking a PR course at UW-Madison’s Journalism School. I’m passionate about helping companies create their voice in the media and share their news with the right audience.

What’s your go-to source for news?
My go-to source for news would have to be the app, Flipboard. I’m slightly obsessed with it, as I like being able to personalize my newsfeed. It’s very user-friendly and has a stylish, yet efficient, interface. My non-work related news source would have to be BuzzFeed. A site that has news, dog pictures, relatable quizzes and an “LOL” section is my kind of site.

Favorite rainy day movie?
It depends on the season for me. But, I’d have to say my overall favorite rainy day movies are ones based in the Victorian-Era, something romantic and classic like Pride and Prejudice. I also enjoy rom-coms like Bridget Jones’ Diary.

Finish the sentence: On a Saturday afternoon, I am most likely…
Spending time outdoors, whether it’s hiking, bumming on the beach, or drinking a pint with friends at the local beer garden.
