Lisa has a knack for crafting a good story and pitching it to the right people. She’s smart, engaging and persuasive. Her client and media relationships are built on trust and credibility - a winning combination, in my book. I'm impressed with her tenacity and professionalism. She has consistently provided top-shelf community leaders for my weekly "live" U-T "Community Spotlight" radio show. I highly recommend Lisa for any work in the media relations/communications world.

Our company hired Lisa Strickland and her team at Brava Creative to develop an exclusive online community for surgeons trained to use our device. Her creativity, leadership skills and command of the English language were impressive from the start. Lisa consulted on rebranding and strategic design, in addition to developing the messaging and copy that defined our online voice. She pays attention to detail, has incredible follow-through and sets the bar high for online communications. Lisa is a pleasure to work with, and I cannot wait until our paths cross again.

It is without hesitation that SpineSearch recommends BRAVA Creative/Lisa Strickland for their work. We have worked with BRAVA on several projects ranging from patient education, creation of marketing materials, crafting & distribution of press releases, to high level strategy and design elements. Lisa is a pleasure to work with, has a plethora of wonderful ideas, and her knowledge of the spine/healthcare arena coupled with her ability to work in digital media is second to none. We do and will continue to work with BRAVA Creative well into the future for the betterment of our clients and SpineSearch.

Lisa & BRAVA: Thanks for all the great work.

Lisa has been the voice of NuVasive’s patient support and education program, The Better Way Back®, since its inception in January 2010. During the development of the program, Lisa not only crafted its voice through our Web site, brochure, newsletter, and other collateral, but she also contributed to the naming of key program elements. Lisa has given our program a personality that speaks intimately to patients and the medical community alike. She consistently delivers extremely high caliber work and is a true “A-Player.”

BRAVA Creative is different from most agencies that I’ve worked with. Lisa and her team develop and execute marketing strategies that differentiate your organization and speak to your target audience. Her copy elicits an emotional response from the reader. Creativity and attention to detail produce outcomes beyond what you might even expect from a Madison Avenue agency.
