President & Chief Artist and Strategist.

Founder of the Felice Agency. We bring the Art, the Structure, and the Discipline.

While I'm shy about accomplishments, on LinkedIn they are prudent. There are a few that I treasure among the others.

One Community Local Hero Award 
I am fortunate to have held positions serving industry and the U.S. Congress, Hollywood Studios, and Industry Organizations.  I have worked on public policy, strategy, and media relations for large multinational corporations and small businesses alike. I've launched enough brands in my career that to do the math seems silly. 

There is great power in the words we choose, the images we share, and the story we tell. I get to do that for a living. That's incredible.

I've recently discovered how marketing and branding contribute to the endless long-term growth organizations seek advice on how to do. 

​My volunteer board member work includes appointment by Mayor Stanton, to the Phoenix City Council Ad-Hoc Committee for FastTrack Cities, American Institute of Architects Phoenix, communication advisor to former Phoenix First Lady Nicole Stanton, Focus On Lyme, Local First Arizona, Arizona Community Foundation, Greater Phoenix Equality Chamber, Phoenix Art Museum Contemporary Art Forum as well as multiple economic development initiatives in Arizona and California.

Chief Influencer and Director of Social Media Influence
Executive Producer Felice Agency Podcasts

Cheri is responsible for social media influencer development and positioning. She is also the Founder and Chief Creative Officer for Savor Acts® |CEO/Co-Founder and Chief Pepper Pickler 

Note: This isn’t a quick two paragraph bio. So prepare yourself for a bit of a read. 😁

As a chef, creating new recipes and challenging herself to make something “better” has always been her passion. It was this passion and desire to create better hot pickled peppers that really spurred the humble beginnings of Savor Acts, along with an over abundant pepper garden, HOT ASS was created. Pickling peppers, giving them as gifts; suddenly the request to sell them started this whole journey.

Doreen’s love of food and cooking started when she was 5 years old, but her professional cooking career has spanned over 26 years. She created a boutique catering business, Apropos Culinary Artistry, with her best friend and business partner, Anna, in the San Francisco Bay Area, while in culinary school. Then later started Dining with Doreen, her food blog. She was also a finalist on the Food Network’s, The Next Food Network Star, Season 6. Since her television debut on the Food Network, she continues to share her recipes as the resident chef on The Vegas Morning Blend and on various television stations across the country. She also continues to share her lifestyle and passion for food on various social media platforms like Instagram as DiningwithDoreen, and Facebook and Twitter.

Besides food, helping others and making a positive difference in the community is something that Doreen is incredibly passionate about. When her mom passed away from lung cancer in 2002, she and her sisters took a difficult moment and turned it into something positive by creating the The Bonnie Fang Foundation™. The tremendous impact her mom made as a nurse and individual has played a major influence in Doreen’s life. Giving back to the community in multiple ways is extremely important to her. 

Growing up in California to Chinese/Taiwanese immigrant parents, Chinese food was what she was predominantly raised on, and it was her desire and openness to try new foods that took her to culinary school instead of going to medical school (or becoming a professional pool player). Her mom loved eating spicy foods, which also rubbed off on Doreen (and affectionately nicknamed her mom: Spicy Girl). As a Chinese-American, Doreen loves her culture and foods, but it is her passion to learn and try new foods from diverse cultures that pushes her to expand her food knowledge. She is always cooking and trying new things and is also working on creating more unique items within the Savor Acts® family. 

To her friends, Doreen has always been the unfiltered jokester that loves to laugh, listens to friends and gives advice, spending time with friends and family, and loves food!  Hence the fun names each of our peppers have. She also LOVES animals! In another life, she says she would’ve either chosen to be a comedian/actor or veterinarian. 

Doreen’s life motto: Life is short…be kind to one another, eat well, laugh and cherish each moment you have with those you love.
