Who we are
Lisa Strickland is the founder and principal of Brava Creative Group. Her team has helped countless clients achieve their outreach goals, including securing interviews and placements on NBC, ABC, CBS and many other media outlets nationwide. In addition, Lisa manages book tours, creates cohesive digital media strategies and organizes special events.
Always the creative type, Lisa had a headshot business in Los Angeles before moving to Italy to work as a photographer and columnist for an Italian lifestyle magazine. Six years later, she returned to the States, holding a number of marketing and public relations positions until launching Brava Creative in 2009.
If you were to ask, she’d tell you that life experience counts. And that PR, at its core, is all about timing and good relationships.
Stills and video drive social sharing
Strong visuals provoke a reaction. Create an emotional connection. And make you or your brand story resonate and stick. Our agency partners, Ivy Island Productions and Chris Brake Photography, work in synch with us to produce visuals that are authentic and memorable.
There’s more to being visually fluent than crisp images and great video. At Brava, we create visual experiences for our clients.

What our clients say
Lisa cares about her clients, making a connection, and supporting their goals - any publicist could be good at what they do, but if they don't care about the people they serve it's all meaningless - Lisa sets the standard for caring and is passionate about everything she does. Truly professional.
Major Scott A. HuesingUSMC (Retired)
Lisa understands brand storytelling and messaging and has exceptional public relations skills. Tenacity is one her greatest strengths. She can also manage design and content development on every platform out there. She excels at generating media buzz and placements… and is a pleasure to work with.

Brava Creative has a knack for crafting a good story and pitching it to the right people. Their client and media relationships are built on trust and credibility - a winning combination, in my book.

Lisa is a game-changer. When I need help getting speaking gigs to promote my novels and writing workshops, she keeps coming through for me. She understands the ever-evolving digital landscape and consistently crafts pitches that get results. Lisa’s smart, diplomatic and tenacious. I can count on her to secure broadcast bookings and coveted venues. I’m lucky to have her as my publicist.
