After working for several leading public relations firms in Orange County and Phoenix, Ariz., I started my own public relations consultancy in 2002. As an independent public relations consultant, I help companies cost-effectively and efficiently achieve their communications goals.

Prior to opening Suzanne Collier Public Relations, I worked with a number of clients in the technology sector, including LSI Logic, ON Semiconductor, Conexant (formerly Rockwell Semiconductor Systems) and Toshiba. Due to my interest in working with small to medium-sized businesses in industries ranging from consumer products to the arts to technology/manufacturing, as well as my passion for public service, my clients include companies ranging from independent business consultants to start-ups to well-established companies in these sectors. I also work with several non-profit organizations that focus on the arts and education, and serve on the board of directors for Art & Creativity for Healing in Laguna Niguel, Calif.

My background and experience enables me to support communication activities including writing projects, media relations, and communications program development.

In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, travelling and settling down for an afternoon with a good mystery novel.
