I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate your talent, input and all the ground work you cover for us. You do a superlative job. You’re a PR genius! The board of directors loved the new image, branding and deliverables you created. One board member wrote: “I’m sure you’ll agree that this season our press coverage was excellent. Not only was ICA USA in the paper, but the reader could actually understand what we are trying to accomplish!” Yes, thanks to you.

I have known Karen Lustgarten for 30 years, from the time she was an on-air personality on the country’s first magazine show and nominated for an Emmy, to when she launched her own business and newspaper Cause Celebre, to when she became my writer and editor for every press release and speech I have made.
When I struggle with writing and using my own words, I know I can send it off to Karen to make it shine, and that is exactly what she does. She is resourceful, an excellent writer, knows where and when to use humor and has a very effective outreach. I use her for anything that has to do with delivering a message.

Karen Lustgarten is a talented and respected media-PR professional. In no time, she raised public awareness of our Planned Parenthood affiliate's programs and services and sustained positive press coverage for more than four years. Because of her professional demeanor, experience, creativity and persuasive writing style, 99% of her releases, pitches, columns and op-ed pieces consistently appeared in important local press--print and broadcast. Whatever focus she suggested for a story was usually the right one.
Karen was a pleasure to work with and an invaluable asset to the organization because she did it all. Besides writing everything, she created the podcasts, Web content, got speakers and moderated town hall meetings, devised and conducted surveys, developed events and outreach programs, took professional photos and recommended board members. I could always trust her judgment and advice as media-PR consultant.
