Finding the pearl that turns ordinary information into exceptional knowledge.


Marilyn Harmacek has spent her entire career finding information to solve problems.  Through discovery (research), development (writing), and dissemination (reporting), she always looks for that one thing, that pearl, that turns ordinary information into exceptional knowledge. 

With a background in journalism, advertising and public relations, Marilyn has been helping others with the art of communication for over 25 years. She’s worked on advertising campaigns for high-tech companies, speeches for political candidates, resource centers for federal grant recipients, conferences for professional associations, websites for major philanthropies, resumes for convicted felons, summary reports for legislative committees, chapters for text books, and recipes for her own pleasure. She’s interviewed everyone from governors to gang members, best-selling authors to victim advocates, corporate lobbyists to conservationists, humorists to horse rescuers.
