  • Christy and Aurora are the dream team! I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Aurora on the distribution of our film A BRAVE HEART: The Lizzie Velasquez Story last year, and most recently with the both of them on a female entrepreneurship summit in Houston. They were thoughtful and prompt with absolutely everything – preparing the press release, securing local and national press, and working directly with our speakers to coordinate interviews. We can’t wait to work with them again!

  • New Heights Communications was the exact addition that we needed to put our campaign over the top. We were doing well, but not quite well enough. New Heights Communications turned out to be the missing piece we needed. They did excellent work from big picture strategic help to the everyday details. They were very thorough and well connected. And most pleasant to work with as well.
