The Ripple name is based on our ability to take a whisper of newsworthiness and watch it explode into the public. It's also an homage to one of the best Grateful Dead songs ever written.

Our thinking has evolved with the industry, but one thing will always remain at the core and that's solid and targeted communication works. If you choose the Ripple way of doing business, you'll become a partner instead of a client that we simply add to our list. Won't you join us?

Tali Faris-Hylen, Founder and Partner

Almost 20 years ago, Tali entered the field of Public Relations as Ilyse’s intern at a firm in Chicago with Tennessee ties. They tell people their relationship has lasted longer than most marriages. It’s true.

Their brand of PR merges their personal and professional strengths and they lead a team that can tackle any PR challenge.

Tali prides herself on her ability to talk to anyone. She prefers listening (although she can AND WILL talk a lot) and loves to learn from every human she meets because EVERYONE has a story.

She’s executed cross promotions with Nickelodeon and Disney while working with Dippin’ Dots ice cream, secured over 600 media placements for “The World’s Largest Cupcake” as declared by Guinness World Records, branded Greg Christian as “Chicago’s Conscious Caterer,” and has garnered placements for clients from USA Today to The Colbert Report. 

Tali and her husband have three kids and a rescue mutt. She’s active within her children’s schools and community, serving on several boards and chairing fundraisers.

She runs the East Lansing branch of Ripple.
