My Story

Curran Communications’ public relations and marketing knowledge, experience and expertise qualifies the company to successfully help you achieve your communications goals.

Owner and Principal Colleen Curran has practiced public relations in Nevada for 30 years, primarily in the federal and county government sectors but also leading communications efforts for technology, legal, gaming, and nonprofit organizations around the state.


Public Relations

Most recently, she led a team of digital and video communications professionals at the Las Vegas Valley Water District, Southern Nevada Water Authority, and Las Vegas Springs Preserve. Charged with changing public behavior to support water conservation programs in the midst of prolonged, severe drought, Ms. Curran’s social media, online and email communications were lauded for increasing Southern Nevada residents’ awareness of and compliance with watering restrictions. She increased the number of social media channels at the District, Water Authority and Preserve from four to 17, in English and Spanish. She also led the modernization of the organization’s five largest websites, created or redesigned three new sites for water programs administered by the organization, and played a large part in the creation of mobile apps for the Water District and the Springs Preserve. In addition, she oversaw the quarterly production of two community television shows and more than a hundred smaller video productions each year.

For the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, Ms. Curran handled public affairs and media and community relations, wrote website content, and created internal communications programs for the lab’s 500-employee Environmental Stewardship organization, which was responsible for environmental protection of plants and animals on the land surrounding the laboratory, as well as the remediation of environmental hazards left over from the lab’s activities during World War II.

Awareness Campaigns

As owner of Nevada Corporate Communications, she took a lead role in creating public awareness programs for the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, including the award-winning “Baby UR Mine” maternal health campaign. She also provided marketing and communications services for local gaming and technology companies, the legal industry, and nonprofit organizations.

Transparency & Efficiency

After assessing the potential of websites and online communications to provide more efficient communications and increased transparency to the public, Ms. Curran led the creation of websites and multimedia programs for two large U.S. Department of Energy agencies as well as several DOE contractor organizations in Southern Nevada. Her efforts were credited with saving hundreds of thousands of dollars and allowing the public to instantaneously access information and documents about nuclear research and testing programs. During this time, Ms. Curran was certified in emergency communications by FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security. She also led contractor companies’ community relations, media outreach, public tours, exhibit, educational outreach, and internal communications efforts. Her work for federal government contractors included a stint at NASA’s Huntsville Space Program office, where she provided news releases and videos for the Nevada media about a space shuttle mission for which her company provided scientific direction.
