Karen Fernau | Food & Drink Reporter, Arizona Republic

As food writer for the Arizona Republic, I worked for nearly nine years on numerous stories with Susan Kricun. In my book, she ranks as one of the Valley’s most competent public relations and marketing specialists for a multitude of reasons. First, she understands the media, from deadlines to story focus, and pitches stories accordingly. In addition, her news releases are accurate and comprehensive. Susan also accommodates the media’s need for photography by arranging times and location for food photo shoots. Equally important, she is delightful to work with.
