  • As the CEO of Lapides Entertainment and The Core we have worked with Valerie for nearly 2 decades. She has provided superb public relations. Her strategies can sometimes be traditional. But, Valerie is willing to think through a PR initiative from a variety of different angles. That is where we find unique success. She has been on the Dr Drew PR team since day one. I could not ask for a better team member.

  • Valerie Allen represents the gold standard when it comes to public relations...as opposed to monolithic corporate PR, Val's hands-on approach creates win-win situations for both her clients and the media. All you have to do is look at the popularity of Dr. Drew Pinsky to see how Val's longterm commitment to supporting her clients pays off...it's proof that a devotion to honesty and integrity CAN form the foundation of a positive, successful PR strategy!
