Let’s meet your team

MARINA NICOLA

Partner

I’m a Las Vegas native and have an old soul. Not many people, no matter the age, can talk circles around me when it comes to my hometown, though they’ve tried.

I’ve lived in Southern California and also Phoenix where I proudly graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State. In my other life, I was a journalist. I’ve produced, run assignment desks, raced TV live trucks to breaking news and written business and feature stories for newspapers and magazines. In my current life, I’m a publicist at heart. After 15 plus years, I still get a rush from placing clients in the media. I am straight with media and they know that for I always remember I was once one of them.

BIO SNAPSHOT

Total years of experience: 25

What I like most about PR: Seeing our work come to life in clips. (PR speak for news articles and broadcasts.)

Career highlights:
  • My first full-time position was working on the morning assignment desk at KTVK in Phoenix even though I was still attending Arizona State University as a journalism student.
  • When I started working for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority in 2003, on day 2, I was handed a news release about a new ad campaign called, “What Happens Here, Stays Here.” The rest is history.
  • One of my favorite artists is Céline Dion. When I was the public relations director for The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas, I had the privilege of working directly with René Angélil and his amazing team on several video shoots and media opportunities. A few years later, I became part of the opening team when she began her current show at The Colosseum at Caesars. What a thrill that was!

Personal Credo: How you do anything is how you do everything.

ERIKA POPE

Partner

Growing up as a military brat, travel was a way of life for me and my family. By the time I graduated from college, I’d moved from state to state eight times and visited umpteen

countries.

The fact that I ended up living permanently in Las Vegas, one of the world’s tourism capitals, and working in the tourism industry doesn’t seem all that much of a surprise. Eight years at the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority’s public relations office added countless stamps to my passport and gave me an appreciation for the vastness and dynamism of the tourism industry, represented not only by my home city, but also around the world. I love the inherent excitement of the travel industry as a whole, as well as the sense of community, culture and overall opportunity that’s blossoming here in Las Vegas right now. Personally and professionally, I’m pleased to be part of such a vibrant landscape.

What I like most about PR: Crafting the most interesting story line possible about a client and then seeing it told to the masses by a great reporter working for a prestigious media outlet.

Career highlights:
  • After receiving a master’s degree in art history and the extensive writing practice that came with it, I worked as a freelance writer and delivered radio commentary about art, culture and lifestyle topics for 10-plus years. When I have time, I still enjoy contributing to local culture publications.
  • One of the most enjoyable and quirky parts of my job at the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority entailed traveling the world with showgirls and Elvis impersonators, touting Las Vegas.
  • When working as publicist for a major culinary festival in Las Vegas, I once found myself called upon to resurrect my college French while on a cozy, 60-story elevator ride with world-renowned chefs Joël Robuchon, Hubert Keller, Pierre Gagnaire, Guy Savoy and Alain Ducasse.

Personal Credo: PR is far from being rocket science, but you have to be willing to think it through.

ADRIANNE OFFERMANN

Public Relations / Research Specialist

Born and raised in the city of Las Vegas, I love all things hot and sunny. Spending my entire career in agency-life I have found myself fortunate enough to work on some of the city’s

most well-known brands. From all night satellite media tours to 12-hour grand opening parties and almost everything in between, I count myself more than fortunate to have worked with the clients and media I have in this amazing city.

BIO SNAPSHOT

Total years of experience: 10

What I like most about PR: The hard work and creativity it takes to rise to the challenge of placing a story.

Career highlights:
  • With more events taking place than can be remembered in Las Vegas, I have had the pleasure to work my fair share of red carpets. The most exciting event by far had to be the reunion of the living members of The Beatles and the spouses of those that have passed, on the red carpet. It was A Hard Days Night!
  • There is nothing like the experience of live theater and over the years I have had the pleasure of attending and working on almost every major Broadway production to come to Las Vegas, but to me the highlight of them all was MAMMA MIA! In a time where Broadway in Las Vegas was questioned, MAMMA MIA! was still the Dancing Queen. When the moon set for the last time, I was proud to celebrate the success and accomplishments of not only one of my favorite clients, but one of my favorite shows alongside an amazing team of cast, crew and creators!

Personal Credo: Stop at nothing short of your best, that is what truly determines your success or failure.

I am a small town California girl, living in the 24/7 city of Las Vegas. I pride myself on being an experienced marketing factotum or jack-of-all-trades in the world of branding.

From an early age and into my career, I have accumulated an expert ability to wear many hats from my experience in advertising, promotions, public relations and social media. Being a millennial myself, I am a social media enthusiast and the ever-changing platforms continue to be an exciting challenge to find new ways to tell a client’s story.

What I like most about PR: What I like most about PR: I thrive on variety and the creative, strategic and tactical work makes every day an exciting ride.

Career highlights:
  • After graduating from California State University, Chico, I loaded my car and traveled across state lines to sunny Las Vegas in hopes to find a breakout position for a legendary casino. Just a month after arriving, I had landed a spot in the marketing & advertising department for a small local casino that offered me big marketing experience.
  • I have been fortunate enough to work with so many talented individuals in the world of film and photography. I enjoy being behind the scenes and getting the shot, whether it be a single food photograph or an elaborate movie scene.
  • Making the move from corporate marketing to public relations has been a completely life-changing experience, and it has allowed me to apply positive energy to each project.

Personal Credo: May my heart be kind, my mind fierce and my spirit brave.

ALYSSA COULTER

Account Coordinator

I am an artist, graphic designer and student inspired by the eccentric culture of my hometown, Las Vegas, Nevada. After years of wondering what to study in college, an internship

with Vox Solid Communications helped point me in the right direction. I am currently in my final year of studying Graphic Design and Communications at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, two subjects I never imagined pursuing before. I’m a creative and I use that to my advantage in all subjects, whether it be research, writing, or even social media. Working in PR has exposed me to a whole other side of Las Vegas that I never knew existed – one where great stories exist.

BIO SNAPSHOT

Total years of experience: 3

What I like Most About PR: Watching all the elements: creativity and research, struggle and resiliency, passion and insight come together to produce a successful story.

Career highlights:
  • Not only being asked to come back to Vox Solid Communications for a second round of interning, but also getting hired as their account coordinator my freshman year of college.
  • Watching Twitch, a dancer from “Magic Mike XXL,” show FOX5 how to get down (from behind the camera!).
  • All of the positive feedback I’ve received despite formal training or experience. It makes every assignment a valuable lesson.

Personal Credo: Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.
