Bernice knows the CPG industry inside out—and from farm to table. While building client relationships and creating innovative, high-impact ideas for brands, Bernice’s enthusiasm and ability to make instinctual adjustments (learned, perhaps, during her many years as a trombonist?) have earned her a reputation as an unflappable PR practitioner. So, she’s levelheaded, improvisational and endowed with a certain enviable flair. But does she, in fact, have a weakness? “Pickles,” she admits. “I could sit and eat an entire jar of pickles.”
