VOCA Public Relations

Public Relations

Because great PR (really great PR—front-page, show-stopping,
can't-believe-we-ever-lived-without-it PR) speaks for itself.


Lean and mean

Our overhead is low, our approach on-point. We believe that the people you hire are the people you should work with.

And we only work with the best.

Tells it like it is

I’m seasoned, sassy, and focused. I founded VOCA Public Relations because I’m obsessed with results. When it’s done right, PR can build incredible businesses, and I still get a rush from seeing a client’s name on a cover or in the national news.

The world of PR can be challenging, cut-throat, and crazy at times…but it’s never boring. Neither am I—I work hard and play harder. After-hours, you’ll find me teaching yoga, traveling, and working with the Denver community through The Women’s Foundation of Colorado and as a member of Leadership Denver Class of 2014.

The Go-Getter

Spirited, adventurous and attentive. My passion for people, travel and the outdoors is the driving force behind my success. Connecting with others through story is my favorite part of what I do – and I strive to identify unique angles that make my clients stand out among the rest.

My “off hours” don’t look much different – as you’ll find me in the mountains, or exploring Denver’s food and art scene.

Crazy good publicist

Aggressive. Creative. Obsessive. I’m all three. You can count on me to get down to the nuggets of news that will hook an editor.

When it comes to PR, I’m tenacious—I always chase down the coverage my clients need. The best part of my job? Rolling up my sleeves and immersing myself in my clients’ businesses. And I take that all-in attitude home with me. (Guess what? I’m a mom of three.)

Lauren Mathews—Founder, The Element Center for Integrative Health
We engaged VOCA to help bring awareness and visibility to our growing business. After getting to know us and our key business objectives, VOCA laid out a strategic 12-month plan and immediately began leveraging their deep media contacts to get us placement in targeted publications. After only 3 months, we received placement in 5 major publications that garnered us over $250,000 worth of media exposure. I would highly recommend VOCA to anyone needing a great ROI on their marketing dollars.
