She opened up her public relations firm, Gossip Media, in 2002. She worked to help Robert Downey, Jr. with the Silver Lake drug rehabilitation initiative.

Her clientele included high-end companies, like Paul Mitchell and IBM, and celebrities such as Celine Dion, Johnny Depp, Oprah, and Dennis Hopper for CineVegas two years in a row.

 

 In 2007, she won a six-figure contract after personally touring Tony Hsieh of Zappos for a downtown Las Vegas property event scape. As a result, Vece coordinated the first-ever casino buyout contract for Mr. Hsieh and she was the first event coordinator to sell logo branding to Zappos on The Stratosphere Hotel, Casino & SkyPod’s famous tower. Later that year, Tanya Vece was one of 50 Las Vegans to obtain a special lightbulb on the infamous Welcome to Las Vegas sign for her work as a Special Promotions Coordinator and Catering Event Specialist. 

 

Tanya Vece started The Horse Chronicles online magazine in 2002. The magazine ran until 2008. Vece’s magazine was the ONLY independent magazine to be credentialed by CNN to cover the Democratic convention in Las Vegas, as well as to be invited to cover the International Press Awards hosted by James Cameron and Alec Baldwin. She interviewed everyone, from her friend Zach Galifianakis to Bumblefoot of Guns N' Roses. She also covered The Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, and more.

Tanya also contributed to a Grammy-nominated album as an uncredited ghostwriter in 2008. She also released her first credited book, "Itch: Love Stories about Heroin" based on Alice in Chains’ frontman Layne Staley.

 

Vece switched gears in 2016. She turned her attention to corporate and medical marketing. She started to help small and large companies realize the value of earned public relations. Realtors, health coaches, medical practices, beauty brands, and service-based companies started to hire her writing and branding work on a per-project basis.

She also helped the Dam Short Film Festival (Nevada's largest film festival) in Boulder City, NV achieve sell-out crowds and gain record media attention and box-office results.
