Susan Hartzler is recognized as a leader in public relations and brings 25+ years of experience to Mental Marketing’s Infinite Solutions creative team. Susan brings her dedication to promoting top-of-mind awareness to our clients in the tourism and public advocacy categories using her extensive network of media and co-promotional relationships to generate editorial coverage in traditional media outlets and social media networks. An award-winning writer, Susan uses her journalism background to create compelling stories that get noticed. For example, Susan launched the media campaign for Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, California, landing them on the cover of Travel & Leisure. Susan has represented tourism hospitality and non-profit clients including Renaissance Hollywood Hotel, Marriott Desert Ridge in Phoenix, Renaissance Esmeralda Spa and Marriot Desert Springs in Palm Springs, the City of Carmel, California, State of South Australia, Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort in Fiji, The Old Course Hotel in St. Andrews, Scotland, American Red Cross, Child Focus, Inc., Children’s Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition, Children of the Night, LA Firefighters Ride for 9/11, The Sweetwater Ranch, and American Humane Association. When Susan is not creating amazing results for our clients, she is tending to her talented actress and model dog Bliss, whose credits include TV spots, print ads and lots of kisses for sick kids in the hospital. She is also an active blogger for her own brand and writes pet travel features for the Examiner.com.
