An Interview with Severn Williams of Public Good PR
By Roy L Hales
Severn William’s passion for environmental causes originated with the woods beside his original home in Maryland. This was his refuge, until the area was transformed into condominiums. Severn started working for environmental causes after he moved to California, at the age of 18. He became a fundraiser, did community organizing work, and later became the Director an environmental group called Youth for Environmental Sanity, or the “Yes Tour”, that gave assembly presentations in High Schools. Severn’s first work with the media led to employment with a political consulting firm, but Severn found he did not like campaigning against other people. He and his wife Nina found their niche PR firm fifteen years ago, giving a voice to worthy causes.
