Thirty years ago, Angela O’Mara came to the United States with the dream of creating an extraordinary life. What began as a casual interest in understanding how people “get on TV,” Angela has taken public relations, also known as PR, beyond simply spinning a story. Since 1988, Angela’s company, The Professional Image, Inc., a medical-specialty public relations agency, has created and maintained a stellar repuation, and has promoted the world of plastic and cosmetic surgery to the media.
She has succesfully placed clients on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, E! Entertainment TV, Extra, Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, The View, Good Morning America, The Today Show, CBS Early Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Telemundo, Univision and the BBC, to name a few. Angela has also been equally successful showcasing clients in magazines and newspapers around the world. As a frequent lecturer, Angela also specializes in strategic marketing and PR campaigns and offers private media training and on-camera interviewing skills. She authored this book to help plastic and cosmetic surgeons achieve successful PR on their own.
