Mozdzierz joined the firm in June 2016 as an intern, quickly climbed the ranks to become an account coordinator later that year, and was promoted to account executive in 2017.

Mozdzierz is a graduate of Florida State University in Tallahassee, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in marketing and real estate. She is currently a resident of Wellington.

Prior to becoming a member of the Durée & Company team in September 2017, O’Reilly worked for Beckerman PR, one of New York City’s leading real estate PR firms. Before that time, she was part of the marketing team at Gibbons P.C., one of New Jersey’s largest mid-sized law firms. She has also worked for agencies in South Florida, including Circle of One Marketing. After spending a year in Southern California at California State University — Fullerton, O’Reilly transferred to Barry University in Miami, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in public relations. She presently resides in Fort Lauderdale.

Shames, who joined Durée & Company in August 2017, brings experience in public relations, news reporting, and social media strategizing to the firm. Before coming on board at Durée & Company, she worked at MGR Communications in Boston, where she managed some of the firm’s largest accounts. Shames earned her bachelor’s degree in communications and journalism at Boston College in Boston. There, she produced and hosted Boston College Television, a campus-based program. She also interned at Boston College Dining Services as a social media manager and at NewTV as a news reporter. Originally from Puerto Rico, Shames is bilingual, and is now a resident of Aventura.

“Samantha, Shannon and Jackie are all incredible assets to our team at Durée & Company,” said Ross. “Their professionalism, expertise and dedication are integral to our firm’s success.”
