Big Push For Midwives
STEFF HEDENKAMP has 16 years of experience in
communications, public relations and marketing, as well
as with campaigns and stakeholder involvement efforts.
Her clientele has included domestic and international
nonprofit organizations, government entities, engineering
and architectural firms, national security strategists and
corporations, market research and management
consulting firms, and accounting and legal firms.
Steff formed Red Quill Communications, Inc. in 2000 as a
way to extend to public and private sector clients the benefits f having their messages spoken with a clear, authentic and imaginative voice. She has helped clients of all kinds not only advance their communications efforts, but also further strengthen their business endeavors as a whole. All of her clients are repeat customers or word-of-mouth referrals.
In 2008, Steff helped to conceive and launch The Big Push
for Midwives Campaign, a national advocacy effort to license and regulate Certified Professional Midwives (CPMs) in all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, and to advocate for the freedom of mothers and families to legally and safely select the birth setting and attendant of their choosing. Today, she is serving in a development and communications role with Water.org, a U.S.-based nonprofit organization cofounded by Gary White and Matt Damon that is committed to providing safe drinking water and sanitation to people in developing counties.
