Stephanie is proud to be an Arizona native. While she grew up in Tucson, she graduated from the prestigious Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Anthropology; both have helped grow her passion for being a storyteller.
Stephanie believes everyone has a story to tell and she wants to share yours. She is a former Emmy nominated news producer who has worked with some of the top media names in Phoenix and Tucson. As a producer and multimedia journalist, she had the privilege of telling stories about people making a difference in the community. However, after nearly a decade in news she wanted a new challenge so she dove head first into the world of Public Relations. Stephanie is excited about this adventure because each day in PR brings something new.
When she’s not busy pitching story ideas, Stephanie is hanging out with her two favorite boys (her husband and her son) and her four legged friend, Lilly. She is very proud of her little family. If you ask to see a picture of her “Hunter Bear” or her Beagle, get ready for cuteness overload.
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.
Natalie is a recent graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder with a bachelor's degree in Communication. She grew up in a small suburb just north of sunny Los Angeles and spent her college days in the Colorado snow. She has now found her home in Scottsdale and dove right into the Public Relations industry after graduating in May.
Natalie has always thrived on her strong connections with all kinds of people. She brings her passion for relationships, writing, and success to the Evolve team. Natalie is incredibly eager to soak up everything she needs to learn to be successful in PR, and embraces challenges and unfamiliar experiences as they arise.
While attending CU Boulder, Natalie served as the both the publisher and president of sales at a campus newspaper where she gained invaluable knowledge about true customer service, perseverance, and leadership. She was also an active member of her sorority, Chi Omega, where she served on the executive board.
Natalie has an insatiable travel bug and loves different cultures. She recently spent four life-changing months living in Portugal and traveling all over Europe. She is also a sports fanatic and cannot get enough of the Los Angeles Dodgers (or Matt Kemp).
I am a graduate of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU, with a bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Tourism Management. During my collegiate career at ASU I participated in numerous professional internships including Rio Salado College, E.B. Lane and Channel 12 News in Phoenix. I also helped develop a national marketing campaign for Fox Sports Arizona. I am a native Arizonan and therefore a huge local sports fanatic especially of the Suns and Cardinals. I love to spend my free time exercising, playing basketball and entertaining my family and friends with my superb dance moves and obsession with 90s R&B music. I am extremely excited to be a part of the Evolve PR and Marketing team and work with such great clients.
