Garden Media Group Welcomes Becky Paxton to the Team
Becky Paxton, a jack of all trades, has joined Garden Media Group as an account executive. Paxton brings a dual-lens of creativity and financial stewardship to her work and now to the Garden Media team.
Before joining Garden Media, Paxton’s professional roles spanned from institutional fundraising, helping to raise millions of dollars for non-profit organizations, to innovative programming that engaged and inspired diverse audiences.
Paxton is a graduate of the Longwood Fellows Program and Wellesley College and holds a Certificate in Design Thinking from IDEO. With civic service and professional experience in historic preservation, Becky specializes in developing awareness and resources for America’s historic landscapes and structures.
Her work in these areas has been honored with prestigious travel opportunities and fellowships from organizations like Longwood Gardens and the TOMODACHI Initiative of the U.S. Japan Council.
“Becky is a powerhouse go-getter who strives for nothing less than excellence,” said Katie Dubow, president of Garden Media. “Her experience, coupled with her training through the Longwood Fellows program, will allow us to soar to new heights.”
In 2020, Paxton authored America’s Garden Coloring Book, a free online coloring book to raise awareness and support for public gardens across the U.S. during the COVID-19 pandemic. Highlighting gardens like the U.S. Botanical Garden, Newport Mansions, and The Gardens at Texas A&M University, the coloring book brings the botanical beauty of iconic American gardens into the homes of garden lovers of all ages.
“Coming from a public garden background, I’m thrilled to join an organization that’s a leader in the conversation on connecting people with plants in innovative ways.” Paxton explains, “The transition from external affairs to PR is an exciting one, and I truly look forward to the journey ahead.”
Dubow says Paxton will show clients exactly why Garden Media wanted her to be part of the team. “Becky has already brought so many great assets to the table and has allowed our clients to take huge steps in the right direction. We are all excited to see the many successes that she is going to bring.”
