Title: Vice President
Company: The SPR Agency
Location: Queen Creek, AZ United States
After receiving both a bachelor’s and a master’s degrees in English literature, Christy Stevens began a career as an education reporter. As time went on, however, she found herself becoming more and more interested in helping the companies grow than reporting on them. She then spent two years as a public information officer for the Higley Unified School District, where she created and ran the district’s public and media relations, event promotion and crisis communication. In 2007, she moved to The SPR Agency, where she remains to this day.
As the vice president of public relations, social media and marketing, Ms. Stevens is responsible for working with the agency’s clients to build business and social media profiles and manage brands. Her greatest strength in this position is using a holistic approach to public relations. She likes starting simple, getting her clients involved with standard social media like Facebook and Twitter. Every day, she is inspired by the results The SPR Agency accomplishes, especially seeing smaller companies she has worked with grow.
Ms. Stevens would like to be remembered as a person who had integrity and always did what she said she was going to do. She is very proud of her role in helping turn firms around, even after years of no luck. She would also like to change people’s opinions of public relations firms if their experiences with others had left a bad taste in their mouths. Moving forward, Ms. Stevens is looking forward to the agency moving offices soon. She is involved with the A Room of Her Own Foundation (AROHO) and the Central Arizona Writing Project, and is in the Golden Key Honor Society. She also supports Goodwill Industries, House of Refuge and Save the Children. In her spare time, she enjoys creative writing and bicycling.
