Barbara Teszler - Publicist

Los Angeles, CA, United States

HarperCollins Publishers alumna. Berkeley grad. Fortés: non-fiction, health, advice, self-help, news hooks and making NYT Best Sellers.

Overview

Barbara has been an avid communications aficionado all of her life.

She began her career as a student writing a weekly humor column for her alma mater UC Berkeley’s award-winning university newspaper, The Daily Californian. Her subsequent internship with Heyday Books, an independent nonprofit publisher in Berkeley, piqued her interest in the book publishing world enough to take her Mass Communications degree to HarperCollins Publishers in New York City. There, she worked with a number of best-selling authors, including Charles Gasparino, Rick Pitino, Ken Davis, Jack Welch and booked national media such as The Early Show and NPR on a weekly basis as an Assistant Publicist.

After returning to the West Coast, Barbara went on to work for the award-winning PR firm, Levine Communications Office, where she spearheaded the firm’s literary division. In less than a year, she independently generated over $45,000 of new business, orchestrated noteworthy publicity stunts (e.g. surprising Ellen DeGeneres with Jack Black on Extra with Mario Lopez) to raise client profiles, made New York Times best-sellers by strategically branding clients (e.g. positioning Father Albert Cutié as the modern-day Scarlet Letter), strategically media trained clients to secure them regular contributor positions at key national outlets (e.g. landing Father Albert his own Fox talk show after the many national bookings she secured for him), comprehensively planned and oversaw high profile events, enlisting and leveraging A-list talent and top tier media (e.g. The Miracle Project’s “Autism is Awesomeism” benefit concert with Jack Black and Stephen Stills, for which she confirmed Extra, The Associated Press, John Voight, Zoe Saldana and more) and devised, negotiated and executed successful media plans for literary, corporate and talent PR campaigns.

Now specializing in her passion of MDs and health and wellness experts, Barbara’s ultimate goal is to make the intellectual accessible and to make good health habits as hot as possible.

Barbara has been featured in USA TODAY, FORBES, THE MIAMI HERALD, CBS’s “The Early Show”,” COSMOPOLITAN, METRO and more.
