Why We Succeed

Evolve PR and Marketing offers such comprehensive services as public relations, branding, business and media consultation, strategic planning, event planning and more. Whatever the project may be, the Evolve team consults on clients needs and cultivates resources to meet their client’s business goals and objectives.

Upon becoming a client, Evolve will assess the past and current state of  the company’s public relations and marketing campaign and devise a plan.  This plan will include the overall client vision and a timeline with strategies and tactics that will garner the coverage and outcome that is sought after by each client.

While this plan acts as a guideline, Evolve prides itself on thinking outside the box when it comes to promotions, story angles and other avenues of keeping clients top of mind for media and target demographics.

Strong relationships and creative thinking allows Evolve to not only retain clients, but go above and beyond their client’s expectations when it comes to public relations, marketing and events.

  • Janice Vega

    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.
