Tish Berge, General Manager, Sweetwater Authority

“Susy is a true collaborator. We set a goal to better communicate our reputation as a reliable water utility to our customers, and Susy creatively identified newsworthy stories from our everyday operations and placed those stories in local media. We needed to communicate a rate change to our customers, and she worked seamlessly with us on a successful, award-winning public outreach campaign that integrated media, community events, and meetings with key local leaders. We are big fans of SVPR  Communications.”


Luis Escareño, General Counsel, Duty Free Americas/UETA

“Susy helped us connect very quickly to local English and Spanish media outlets and community leaders. She put together a strategic outreach plan, created our project collateral in a matter of days, and introduced us and our commercial project to community leaders and the media. Susy is a diligent and skilled professional.”

Luis Rankins-Ibarra, Superintendent, Escondido Union School District

“When we needed to navigate a crisis and communicate the achievements of our students, teachers, and district to the media, Susy was spot-on in her advice to us. Her work has generated visibility for the great things happening at our school district. She is highly effective, always available, and a pleasure to work with.”


Mark Watton, General Manager, Otay Water District

“Our water district needed to communicate a cross-border project and a complicated rate issue to the media and regional leaders. Susy explained our position to the media, in English and Spanish, and mobilized communities in support of our position. She was a critical contributor to our strategy and goals.”

Lisa Cuestas, CEO, Casa Familiar

“As a non-profit serving a bilingual border community, Susy’s tailored English- and Spanish-language social media campaigns are not only culturally appropriate, they directly contribute to the success of our programs and annual events. Local, national, and international media often approach us through Susy, and she prepares us for print and television interviews that allow us to resonate far beyond San Diego.”
