Elena Verlee is a passionate communicator with two decades of brand building experience. Elena works with high-growth and technology companies to promote them in the US, Canada and the UK. Elena’s goal with publishing this blog site, PR In Your Pajamas, is to give back to her community and help educate marketing peers, entrepreneurs, small businesses and non-profits to get heard, get known and get talked about so they can change the world.
Elena has been named twice in a Forbes list as one of “20 Women for Entrepreneurs to Follow on Twitter” and “25 Most Influential Women Tweeting About Entrepreneurship”.
PR in Your Pajamas has won multiple industry awards including PR Web’s “25 Essential PR Blogs You Should Be Reading” in 2012 named #15 by Cision (PR Software) in their “Top 50 Marketing Blogs in North America” based on measured influencer rankings, and in 2013 as InkyBee Software’s “#8 in World’s Best PR Blogs” based on relevance, visibility and engagement.
Elena has been married for 15 years, has two young boys and is an avid traveler, having been to more than 40 countries. Although she comes from a family of champion race car drivers, she’s usually the one holding up the slow lane and parallel parking makes her break out in a sweat.
