Hi I’m Ashley Bernardi
The Founder and Director of Media Relations for Nardi Media. When I was a child, I would produce, write and direct our family news. I went on to anchor my high school news cast and was an award-winning editor for my college newspaper.
During college, I got an internship at CBS news. Hook, line, and sinker, I was in love. They ended up hiring me after the internship because I was so dedicated and I quickly climbed the ranks and traveled the world covering breaking news and booking top-notch guests for our shows.
When I started having children, I knew my travel days were over but I wanted to keep working in the newsroom on some level. I started working in PR, and I found myself loving the other side of the media. My love became finding the hook that I know the media will want to feature.
As a producer, I loved booking guests so much that my name on social was bookerbernardi. I love being able to vet people and match the stories to the relevant news. My clients would call me the “interview doctor” as I drill into their stories and help them find their true voice.
In 2015 I stepped away to start my own business in my basement playroom, surrounded by toys and babies because I felt called to work personally with people who had important messages to share. From there, the company has evolved into a world-class media relations firm that specializes in strategic media placements.
