A big thank you to Jenna Cooper and the team at Gratia PR for the exceptional results. We turned to Gratia for assistance getting word out about our unique and valuable pain relief solution. Jenna and the team worked quickly and effectively to help us refine our message down to the most marketable and newsworthy aspects. They got it into the hands of the right people, and used their reputations and expertise to grow the interest, resulting in multiple news agencies covering our story. The attention we received from it was immediate and significant.
There is a lot of skepticism around new, novel treatments for pain management. Our solution is the safest, most consistently effective and poised to change how chronic pain is treated in our country, but it is very different. Effective public and media relations are paramount to our business success and they are most significant and important aspect of our marketing strategy.
I have complete trust in Jenna and the Gratia team to help us continue to develop and execute the winning PR & Media strategy necessary to make Radiant Pain Relief Centres the business and clinical success we intend it to be. - P. Brendon Lundberg, President/CEO Radiant Pain Relief Centres
"Jenna Cooper, APR brings almost 20 years’ experience on both sides of the camera—in TV News and in strategic communications planning. You see that the moment she speaks: Jenna is an engaged, confident public speaker with the wit and wisdom to explain to the most fearful executive how to represent his or her company concisely and confidently in front of the media. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jenna several times in the past two years, presenting media training and public speaking modules to communicators or company executives. Jenna’s expertise, and her ability to keep the audience actively involved, means you’ll learn what you need to know and remember how to do it after she’s gone. I highly recommend Jenna to make any presentation involving media training or public speaking. She’s able to prepare the novice and polish the expert.”

“Shirley Hancock has the ability to immerse herself in our technology to write about our product features and benefits better than any PR firm I have worked with in my career. Her attention to detail, ability to capture and write headlines that are picked up by the media and most of all her relationship with the media, enabled us to be featured in many industry publications that we would never been able to get on our own. She simply is the best.”
— Karen Morris, Chief Marketing Officer @ ZOS Communications
"I've known Jenna for years and she definitely knows her stuff when it comes to story development. She always has the right ingredients to make a compelling pitch--visual elements, interesting characters and important, timely topics. She gets it and is a pleasure to work with."
— Nick Bradshaw, Television Assignment Manager
“I would highly recommend Shirley Hancock as she is a true professional who gets the job done. She produced and narrated a video for LCW Wireless, highlighting our efforts to deploy wireless broadband access to individuals living below the poverty line. The video was so well done that it became the cornerstone of our efforts to secure federal grants flowing from the White House. Shirley and her team ran with the project with little required direction and exceeded our expectations.”
— Neil Grubb, President & CEO @ LCW Cricket Wireless, LLC
“I recruited Jenna to the PRSA chapter board because I had heard such great things about her. She performed beyond my wildest expectations and I was so glad to see the chapter later elect her as its president. Jenna has exceptional people and communication skills. She is a strategic thinker who can also handle the tactical side of the job. She has an excellent sense of humor to boot and is a joy to work with.”
