Susan Meyers and Newt Gingrich

Biography

Susan L. Meyers has led Oak Grove Communications since 2006 after her first career as a journalist.

That, many say, is why she is so successful in leading strategic messaging for her clients.

As Principal of Oak Grove Communications, Meyers has advised some of the most influential national and state political leaders, corporate CEOs, global thought leaders and non-profits seeking to make a difference for their constituents, their customers or to make the world a better place.

With strategic counsel, she guides comprehensive public affairs and messaging strategies that help clients achieve goals from winning Presidential primaries to influencing legislation in Congress and state capitols to moving public opinion on serving the needs of others.

By generating the correct message - primarily through effective earned media - she has achieved tremendous results for clients.

With her background as a former journalist, Meyers has a knack for what makes news. She has placed stories, interviews, guest commentaries or been quoted in media outlets ranging from all major national television networks to the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Forbes, Investor's Business Daily, Fox News, CNBC, NPR, the Chicago Tribune, Miami Herald, Philadelphia Inquirer, Houston Chronicle, Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the Rush Limbaugh show among others. She has had placements in regional media in virtually every state in the nation, specialty publications and some international press outlets.

Meyers was the communications director for Newt Gingrich's Center for Health Transformation in its epic battle against Obamacare and the impact on American patients and the healthcare industry. She led the Southeast media relations campaign for Gingrich's 2012 presidential bid as well as Mitt Romney's Georgia press during his first presidential run in 2008.

Meyers launched Oak Grove Communications after working at the Georgia State Capitol, where she served as the Policy Advisor for the state House of Representatives and was chief communications strategist to former Speaker Mark Burkhalter. During her tenure, she helped draft legislation and communications for initiatives including Georgia's voter ID law, school choice and tort reform laws.

Meyers got her start reporting at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution before being named a member of its conservative editorial board. Her editorials on Grady Memorial Hospital not only led to needed change in Atlanta's healthcare system for the poor, but they were nominated for journalism's top award - the Pulitzer Prize.

Meyers has a bachelors' degree in journalism from the University of Georgia and was a media fellow at the prestigious Hoover Institution at Stanford University. She previously served as a commentator on public television's "Atlanta This Week" and as a freelance editor at CNN. Reporters still seek her political observations and comments, particularly about women in politics.
