Founder & Publicist
A true suburban Detroiter, Andrea Walker-Leidy was born and raised in southeast Michigan.
Telling stories has always been Andrea’s passion. She launched Walker Publicity in 2007, with the vision of helping others share their unique tales.
Now, she’s bringing her expertise, media connections and understanding of Michigan’s cannabis industry to 420 Publicity.
In the ever-changing landscape of media, marketing and social media, there is always a new way to share a story! But the old ways of storytelling are still relevant and Andrea knows how to tend to them.
She’s spent the past decade building relationships in the communities she serves, as well as with media across the globe. Those relationships have given her the honor of sharing stories, connecting people and building her own business.
With a team of talent behind her, Andrea is able to offer writing, branding, social media consultation and full reputation management systems to clients in addition to publicity services.
Andrea’s past freelance writing work has been featured in several publications like Ambassador Magazine, The Oakland Press, Community Lifestyles, Detroit Free Press, Jewish News, SEEN Magazine and many others. Through her writing, she has had the amazing opportunity to meet and interview celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Jerry Seinfeld, Angela Bassett, Regina King, Cookie Johnson and many others.
Andrea was named Young Professional of the Year by the Rochester Regional Chamber of Commerce in 2010 and joined the Elite 40 Under 40 of Oakland County Class in 2016. She is a member of Public Relations Society of America, as well as its Detroit chapter.
