Stephanie R. Heinatz

Stephanie R. Heinatz, founder and CEO of Consociate Media, a Virginia-based public relations and communications consulting firm, cut her teeth as a newspaper journalist. Whether working on assignment in her own hometown, or in the remote areas of East Africa or war-torn Iraq, Stephanie believed one thing – stories are the most powerful way to reach people and inspire change.

She brings that same strategy to Consociate Media, where she specializes in working with business owners, legislative initiatives, economic development programs, non-profit organizations, tourism efforts and individuals to strategically plan and execute the telling of stories across a wide range of new and traditional media.

To cut through the noise, Consociate Media works with its clients to identify their why, researches their efforts and how it fits into regional, national and global initiatives, and helps them strategically plan – and then execute – the most effective ways to reach their goals.

Consociate Media offers strategic marketing and communications services, from planning to execution.
