Trust is a bond that too rarely exists between publicist and reporter. Yet trust has always been one of Karenís virtues. When she tells you something, you can take it to the bank. If she canít answer your question, sheíll just say that. No lies. No shadow dance.

What has impressed me about Karen is that she doesnít treat clients as if they are part of a PR assembly line. She promotes her clients as if they are one of a kind. Special. And that means Karenís story ideas and interview suggestions are more likely to be heard and seriously considered. Karen Frost is one of the best!

Karenís work has helped to bring our work to the attention of significant numbers of local, state, and national media. This work has been pursued above and beyond any normal call of duty, and can only be explained by the fact that she cares deeply about the work weíre doing, and believes that she can help us bring inspiration, knowledge, and action to wide numbers of people. Her tireless energy, passion, and her wide network of contacts have been a great asset for The Nobelity Project.

Karen cares about us and it's one of the reasons I check my email three times a day. Rarely a day goes by without an inquiry from her about promoting our work for a timely news event. Her eagle eyes and keen news sense has resulted in our material being featured in Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, and other major media as important news breaks.
