Former Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has started a consulting firm.

WBAL-AM reported Wednesday that Rawlings-Blake has started SRB & Associates. According to the firm’s website, Rawlings-Blake will consult with cities, businesses and political candidates.

The website also says the former mayor is available as a paid speaker for events.

The website calls Rawlings-Blake a “national leader” for her time in the mayor’s office.

Rawlings-Blake decided not to turn for re-election. Former State Sen. Catherine Pugh was sworn in as Baltimore’s mayor on Dec. 6.
