Evie Smith – Founder / Lead Publicist
There’s a reason that Evie Smith owns a business named Rebellious.
Evie got her start doing PR for Silicon Valley companies of every size – from Fortune 500 to a small team of bros in hoodies. By day, she’d take on tech giants, and by night she’d crush it on the roller derby rink as Raven Von Kaos.
Evie brings that same energy with her to her profession. While recovering from a torn ACL and two knee surgeries in early 2016, Evie did the opposite of what most people would do – she started a new PR agency from her bed.
At Rebellious, Evie works hard for our clients and loves it. Though they run the gamut from consumer tech to lifestyle brands to general geekery, they all have one thing in common – they’re run by good people doing great work. After 10 years+ in the business, she recognizes that the world is full of bad PR, which is why she’ll always tell it to you straight.
