Agency Two Two Five

Rap Sheets - Evelyn Rivera Halpin  

Growing up in Newark, New Jersey, Evelyn learned early that it was going to take hard work to rise up and get out of ‘the neighborhood.’  Thankfully she had a strong-willed mother and two older brothers who all worked just as hard. During her years as a Chemistry Student at Fairleigh Dickerson University, she was also a drummer in a punk rock band that played in the city across the Hudson frequently.

Leaving her drum sticks behind, she headed for Southern California and landed in the world of advertising, starting as a Media Planner for Lord Dentsu & Partners. Being fluent in Spanish helped her rise quickly in the LA media world, and she consulted on media plans for numerous clients, including Toyota, Dole Foods, Del Taco, and Mitsubishi.

In the mid-nineties, she moved to a start up agency, Marshall Advertising, in Costa Mesa, CA, eventually working her way up to Media Director, building media plans for brands such as Yamaha, Big-O, Toyo Tires and may others.

Somewhere along the way, Evelyn met Gary Halpin on one of his many trips out to LA to produce the Blockbuster Entertainment show with Entertainment Tonight. And like an ole fashioned Hollywood movie, they fell in love and the rest is history as they say. They’re now raising two wonderful boys in in the heart of the Rockies.

Evelyn is also earning her Masters in Natural Health & Nutrition, so in addition to getting great media advice, you can also rest assured you will get some solid advice on staying healthy. And also the potential for some fabulous meals, as she loves to cook.
