Dowling & Dennis was formed by Liz Dowling and Greg Dennis in 1991. Liz had been a hospital PR director and Greg was a long-time newspaper editor and writer. From the very start, the vision was and remains:


  • Work closely and strategically with a few select organizations at any one time
  • Offer top-tier services from experienced professionals
  • Focus in healthcare to offer extensive knowledge and contacts – not “one-size-fits-all” PR
  • Bring our expertise to bear on new challenges such as startup companies, product launches and relaunches, and creative initiatives that supercharge sales and marketing
  • Work virtually without costly bricks-and-mortar, to provide clients with more direct service for every dollar.
