Chef Tanya Holland, 

Award-winning, Bravo's Top Chef, Author and Restauranteur, Brown Sugar Kitchen 


One of the most important tools in PR is being able to write well and tell a great story and Victoria's creative writing education gives her an advantage in this area. I found that she was able to get to the heart and the root of the messaging for my brand to create a cohesive vision that was both engaging and authentic. I also loved working with Victoria because she's a great listener, who earnestly wants to know her client's true values and goals. We accomplished a lot!

Former Senior Editor at Poets & Writers


Victoria Cooper is a powerhouse. She's smart, motivated, reliable, and wholly original—a creative thinker with innovative ideas, who not only gets things done but loves a challenge, and delights in looking outside the box to find new ways to approach any task. Whether on the page, in the office, or at an event, she's not only capable but also funny, positive, and a total joy to be around. In short, Cooper is a force, and I would want her in my corner on any creative project.
