Parker Philips, Inc. is a women-owned boutique-consulting firm committed to keeping our principals at the table and tailoring our expertise to meet each client’s unique needs.

Cookie cutter consulting went out the door as soon as Google hit the world stage. We treat each client to a singular experience and deliver a product that considers their unique business goals and supports their communication needs.

Parker Philips replaces the “Save As” culture with an approach that is rooted in original content and integrity—and it works. Because we only accept a certain number of projects at a time, we do not over commit our staff or ourselves.

The Parker Philips firm custom builds our teams around each client’s needs and then those handpicked experts staff your project. We select subject matter experts who can produce high-quality work. Unlike other firms, we can guarantee that the same team will carry the project start to finish.

With 40 years of combined experience, Parker Philips founders Kate Philips and Nichole Parker have a reputation, and it’s for being two chicks who know how to get things done.

We are based in Erie, PA with employees working in Pennsylvania and Minnesota.
