Beth Casteel, Senior Counselor at The Reis Group, is a former reporter for The Associated Press and a veteran media relations strategist for leading medical societies, including the American College of Cardiology and the American Psychiatric Association. These experiences have made her a versatile and invaluable media relations professional.

She spent a decade reviewing and promoting medical research, led a major multi-year strategic campaign to reduce the stigma of mental illness, and placed dozens of opinion pieces in major trade and mainstream publications. Casteel holds a B.A. in journalism from the University of Oklahoma and a strategic public relations certificate from the University of Virginia.
