Testimonials

From our advertisers and partners

“Vicki at SurpriseAZMom was an absolute delight to work with! We invited a select group to attend a VIP experience at Phoenix Raceway on behalf of the GM BuyPower Card by Capital One. The experience included a meet-and-greet with two-time NASCAR champion driver Austin Dillon, behind-the-scenes hauler and garage tours, and pace car rides prior to the race. From the beginning to end, Vicki’s enthusiasm towards the activities and positive attitude stood out. Post-event she help spread the word about the activation with a magnificent piece, highlighting the card’s benefits and recapping the weekend festivities. We would work with her again without hesitation, if given the opportunity. Thank you so much Vicki for being a ray of sunshine, helping to make the experience enjoyable for all attendees!” – Carly Galasso & Melissa Jannuzzi, Taylor Strategy PR



Vicki has been a great partner of Gila River Arena. She does a great job communicating and sending proof of performance in a timely manner. She shows enthusiasm about working with our family shows and always goes the extra mile. She goes above and beyond to show continued support for our events rather than simply throwing up one post/ blog. She is a true blogger and story teller and will give your event/ product her full attention. I highly recommend using Vicki for all your advertising needs. – Heidi Grammerstorf, Gila River Arena Marketing Manager

As an “older” business owner, my traditional forms of marketing were falling short with reaching my key demographic. When I read about Vicki, her online social media presence and her blog, I knew she’d be the perfect person to help bridge the gap between my generation and the younger families. Vicki was a delight to have in our store, professional and easy going. Her review and posts after her visit were above and beyond. Within the first few hours of her post, I had a walk-in customer and the feedback on social media makes me feel confident that there will be many new faces coming into our store. This was one of the BEST uses of my marketing time and money thus far and I’m so very appreciative.

Partnering with Vicki (Surprise AZ Mom) was truly a pleasure. We work with a number of influencers and Vicki was by far one of the easiest to work with–and delivered an awesome final product! If you have a family or kid-focused event, location, or product and you are in the Valley metro area, give Vicki a shout! On a personal note, as a mom of three (9, 7, and 1), I use Vicki’s blog weekly for ideas to keep the kiddos occupied and for new, exciting places to visit.

It was a blast working with Vicki at Surprise AZ mom! The communication was always efficient and she creates great content! I look forward to working with her again in the future! – Gulf Coast PR


Vicki has been an amazing partner of Jumper’s Jungle Family Fun Center in Peoria for the last 2 years. Her blog carries so much weight that each time she graces us with a brief article – our Open Play business skyrockets!! Which of course leads to our ability to book more parties as the more eyes we have on the business the better! I recently ran into a friend of mine that lives and surprise and she said “Hey… I saw you guys in the Surprise AZ Mom article!”. And this I’ve heard from several people. She is always extremely professional and humble and I am so very appreciative of her! Sincerely, Ed Buckson
Owner, Jumper’s Jungle Peoria



Collaborating with Vicki and Surprize AZ Mom was an absolute pleasure and breeze. She was extremely responsive, kind and willing to help get the word out for The Story Pirates. We were very pleased with the lovely album review she wrote and giveaway she hosted. Vicki went out of her way to make sure everything looked great and was very generous with her time. Working in media relations, it is rare to find someone like Vicki and I hope we can continue to collaborate. Also, her social media pages make me laugh every day. Thank you, Vicki! Surprise AZ Mom Rocks!

Vickie has been a Fantastic partner for our business Maid To Serve. We discovered her blog online and saw the value she brought to the community and loyal following she had with local moms and families and knew right away we wanted to partner with her as our paths seem to cross and parallel in many ways.

The first time we partnered with her for marketing purposes we found her professionalism to be top notch and the results to be equal. The Surprise area has a heavy family demographic and she has situated herself right in the heart of that and has gained the trust and ear of many local moms and families. When Vickie speaks people listen! We have worked with her on multiple occasions and when we do we see results, plain and simple. For those considering it we highly recommend it, You won’t be sorry!

Working with Vicki at SurpriseAzMom has been such a blessing for me and my business. Not only is she wonderful to work with, but her blog has helped my business to grow and expand like no other advertising options I have found. In fact, I saw my email list double after just one promotion she did for me on her site! She is fantastic to work with and every penny spent has been well worth the return. Her relatability and knowledge make her the #1 go to site for families in the Surprise area! I will continue to advertise with her for every event I hold.

Hi Vicki, I wanted to say thank you so much for sharing your review of meori’s shopper bundle with your readers! So glad you are loving it. It was a pleasure working with you-I hope we can work together again soon-Kerrilynn Lanza, Gillian Small Public Relations


Working with Vicki and Surprise AZ Mom is always a pleasure. She is organized and delivers. Partnering with Surprise AZ Mom provides a great opportunity to reach a captive audience to promote events, products and opportunities throughout the Valley.

Vicki does a great job with this blog. If you are a parent with little ones, I would highly recommend giving her site a visit. There are plenty of great ideas for things to do and places to see in the valley. Plus Vicki is an awesome human! So if you do anything, pay a visit for her.

-Hely Kieser, ZOG Digital, Inc.


A creative spirit. An energetic whirlwind of ideas. And always ready to jump in to share her thoughts. These are just a few of Vicki’s traits that showcase her generous and helpful attitude, without asking for anything in return. Love her sense of reality and gumption to take on anything and everything! She’s willing to put herself out there and experience the humor of life when things don’t quite go as planned. Never fear, she’s got a Plan B to fall back on. And maybe a Plan C. (Etc.)

Vicki has been a constant lifestyle blogging force on SpouseLink for a while now and her posts generate great response for us — which is fantastic. Beyond that, we are occasionally contacted by outside businesses that have read her posts and would like us to incorporate one of their links into her posts. Why? Because they like something she’s said and want to capitalize on it themselves. Way to go, Vicki! Her attitude is like sunshine. Her dedication is clear. And her inspiration is endless. Thank you for all you do, Vicki!

Cathleen Karlsson, SpouseLink


Vicki is not only a pleasure to work with, but a pleasure to have her kids and her in my Tinkergarten class. She is quick to respond, fair in her reviews and so helpful for local families not only in Surprise, but all over the valley. I have followed Vicki’s blog long before I became a Tinkergarten leader. It is my personal go-to when I am trying to find a park, splash pad, or local events. She its very thorough in her reviews and takes her blog and the advice she provides very seriously. She has helped me enroll so many explorers to my class. I have not only build a business partnership with her, but a friendship as well. I recommend her blog to anyone who lives in our area with kids.

Marissa Holm, Tinkergarten


Surprise AZ Mom is such an incredible site for not only those living in Surprise, but also Phoenix metro in general. Vicki and I have worked together several times with many of my event and restaurant clients and each time she has made the experience easy, fun and beneficial to those she is reviewing!

-Liz Renninger, Evolve PR and Marketing


Working with Vicki for the past year and a half and has been awesome! She is fast, friendly and checks in with myself and my business frequently. Being featured on Surprise AZ Mom gives us an amazing opportunity to get in front of our target-audience and show them what we have to offer. West Valley moms are always looking for fun things to do with their kids and Vicki’s blog provides an in-depth view of what the valley has to offer. We are so appreciative of everything you do for us, Vicki!

With this being a new attraction in the West Valley, having someone like Vicki who is in touch with the community and has a built-in base of followers, it really helps us reach the family demo that we’re targeting.
