A graduate from The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications, at Arizona State University, Liz worked in New Mexico as a reporter for two years at KOB-TV before she decided to return home and pursue a career in public relations. Before starting at Evolve, Liz worked as a freelancer for Orca Communications doing national PR for clients. Liz brings that same passion for PR to the Evolve team.
This proud Sun Devil is happy to be back in the Valley of the Sun. Liz enjoys everything that the beautiful city of Phoenix has to offer: great weather, restaurants, and, of course, living close to her family.
Janice is an Arizona native and proud Sun Devil who has always had a knack for building relationships. Her inquisitive nature, natural people skills and love of the written word lead her to pursue a career in media.
During her time in college, Janice interned at ABC affiliate KGUN 9 News in Tucson. She was also a staff writer for her college's student magazine and Arizona Foothills Magazine. She graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Journalism and Mass Communications and a second degree in Human Communications.
After graduation she became a writer for College Times magazine, where she covered the news, nightlife and shopping scene in The Valley. In order to satisfy her inner music nerd, she continues to write for Arena.com, a national online magazine and music streaming website.
Most recently Janice has gravitated to the marketing side of the business working for Gannett's digital marketing company, G/O Digital. There, her main role was to establishing and build relationships with business owners in order to help their business grow.
Though she loved her time in the editorial world and has learned a lot about marketing in the digital age, she knew her combined experiences were a great fit for a career in public relations. Now that she has joined the elite team at Evolve PR, she is eager to use her skills to help clients grow and increase their reach.

When not glued to her iPhone, Katie enjoys working out, trying new foods, watching NBA basketball and spending time with her family.

Now that she has joined the agency world, Stephanie looks forward to working with a variety of clients and helping them achieve their goals.
