Morgan Green

Chief Pawsitivity Officer 

Morgan Green is EPR’s Chief Pawsitivity Officer. She joined Estes Public Relations in November 2017 with about two years of experience being a dog. Prior to EPR, she was with Adopt Me Bluegrass Pet Rescue, who helped her find her forever home with EPR Managing Director Tracy Green. The two work closely together on many projects. Morgan‘s hybrid work schedule includes working from home — usually from her favorite spot from the window seat in Tracy’s office — and you’ll also find her in the office at EPR HQ where she has the opportunity to connect with her other colleagues nose to face (and try to mooch all of their snacks). While Morgan’s contributions to the team may largely go unseen by those outside the agency, she is an important contributor to the office culture and a highly valued employee.

Outside of the office, she enjoys hiking, visiting parks, checking out the best patios for dining, and napping.
