Lioness is a storytelling platform. We believe that the right story can move people to buy a product, engage a business service, invest in a company, create a movement, or change the world for the better.
We partner with businesses, leaders, organizations with a social or civic mission, and good-for-the-world brands to discover, create and refine compelling stories. We connect those stories to the right journalists and media outlets, putting the companies and people we work with in front of the audiences they need.
We also help individuals bring their stories to the world through the media. A team of writers, editors and strategists help stories get published in the opinion pages of national media outlets or heard from in reported stories. We have worked with whistleblowers, former employees, and other storytellers speaking truth to power.
A team of writers, editors and strategists to help you get your story in front of a reporter, or your opinion piece published in national media outlets.
A conduit for sources to bring newsworthy stories or information forward, by providing a pathway between story-givers and the media.
Content that features untold stories and other chatter about media, politics, and anything in between.

PRESIDENT & PARTNER
After losing her religious faith and leaving her missionary post in China, Amber was shunned by her Jehovah’s Witness family and friends as an apostate. Moving to New York City to start a new life, she quickly discovered that the zeal and determination she had brought to her preaching was much better suited to creating positive change in the real world. Amber became a parental leave advocate whose story of the loss of her son on his first day in childcare touched millions. Last year, she released a critically-acclaimed memoir about the experience of leaving a high-control religion.
Amber has appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, NPR’s Morning Edition and the TODAY Show. Her writing can be found in the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, and many other national publications.
