about us

Launched in June 2015, SynaVoice LLC (SynaVoice) focuses on communications and stakeholder outreach for federal and commercial clients, and has deep expertise in the housing and finance sectors. SynaVoice works collaboratively with clients to articulate messages and tell their story in compelling and meaningful ways that resonate with stakeholders and facilitate behavior change. 


The name, SynaVoice, comes from the words 'synthesis' and 'voice' and represents the idea of presenting a singular, consolidated message to increase the impact of mission-critical initiatives.

SynaVoice is certified by Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) as a Women's Business Enterprise (WBE).


Julie Rothhouse conceived the idea for SynaVoice from observing the positive impact communications advice has on both new and evolving organizations. Julie is an award-winning communicator who brings more than 25 years of strategic communications, marketing and outreach experience to clients in both the public and private sector. Julie collaborates with clients to deliver clear messages that motivate stakeholders.
