I cannot tell you enough what an amazing job MEPR Agency did for us at The Big Paycheck Game Day Throwdown and beyond. MEPR truly helped us shine a light on all that is good in the nonprofit community, and for that I am grateful. MEPR helped to preserve precious memories of a generous community. Thank you!"



“Metro Arts has been working with MEPR Agency since 2013 on high-level citywide projects like Artober Nashville, our 'Crafting a Creative City' Strategic Planning Process and, most recently, in the development of a Community Investment Plan for our city’s public art program. MEPR Agency is adept at staying ahead of trends and the ever shifting social media landscape and equips clients with measurement tools and analytics to track impact. In that brief time we have experienced a significant increase in social media reach and they have empowered us to connect to more citizens, better amplify our message, more deeply engage audiences, and facilitate meaningful conversations about the importance of the arts and culture in Nashville. “

"Kia is a valuable addition to the CNM family of experts. She has a singular ability to make complex issues more approachable and to help even our small member organizations to see opportunity in social media, branding and community building. It can be challenging for a small organization to understand and embrace the value of marketing but Kia works through that to find the highest impact and to set priorities that are achievable and impactful."

MEPR Agency was a subcontractor for the NashvilleNext process, Nashville’s comprehensive plan update. This process was a major undertaking, lasting a little over three years, with 100+ community meetings, that covered topics including Housing, Transit, and Arts and Culture. MEPR Agency was charged with helping to reach minority and millennial demographics. MEPR’s guidance on outreach techniques was always very straightforward and eye opening. Through social media, and earned media, MEPR helped to tell the story of the planning process in a new and engaging way to those target demographics. As a result, the process garnered quality input from groups that are typically not involved in the community planning process.”

“I'm very grateful to have a PR partner in MEPR Agency. We engaged them when we had a time-sensitive campaign where we required internal and external communications, as well as reputation management. Almost immediately we were provided deliverables that gave our team great confidence in their value. I would highly recommend hiring the MEPR Agency team for public relations and marketing support.”

NBIC has worked with MEPR Agency for the past three years to develop our brand messaging.  During this time we grew from one program to three, and expanded our reach from the city of Nashville to the state of Tennessee.  MEPR was very responsive to our needs, crafting our story as it evolved with consistent language and messaging.  MEPR has been invaluable to our growth process; clarifying and honing in on messaging to reach our target markets and succinctly tell our story. With MEPR’s messaging guidance, NBIC was able to increase funding through donation and sponsorships.

"What a cheerleader! Sometimes quiet, yet most times not. Either way, Kia Jarmon is always confident in who I am and my vision. More times than not she has her finger on the pulse when I felt like a flatliner. I love Kia. Not only could I not have been so successful without her, but I could not think of any other person I would want to march on the field with in this quarter of the game. Our biggest plays are yet to come. Thank you for believing, listening, fighting, co-signing, coaching, learning, never quitting and inspiring me."
