Strategic Thinkers. Tenacious
Our collective experience in communications, campaigns, advocacy, and capacity building means we have a 360° view of what you need to achieve impact.

The New Heights Advantage
How We Work
Our approach is anything but cookie-cutter. We tailor our work to your particular needs, led by a senior staff member every step of the way. We bring the comms expertise; you bring the issue expertise. Together, we craft a strategy that is authentic to you and then hustle to get you strategic wins. From big-picture thought leadership to detail-oriented execution, we get it done.
We’re not your typical communicators–we’ve also done the work. From political campaigns to issue-driven policy fights, legal advocacy to academia, we’ve been in your shoes. Like you, we feel the fierce urgency of now – and our work shows it. Our size is our superpower, hitting the sweet spot of small enough to be nimble, big enough to deliver real results.
What We'll Build
We do more than just straight comms–we build a solid foundation for all external aspects of your work, from messaging “blueprints” and media hits to internal comms infrastructure and capacity-building. We consider ourselves a “teaching hospital” for your team and for the movement, leaving our clients stronger and better equipped for the long haul.
“Not only does New Heights offer thoughtful guidance and ideas, they can actually execute. That’s worth saying again: they do the work. As the communications director at a small non-profit, I don’t always have enough staff in the trenches. New Heights brings the reinforcements!”
“The Brown Firm highly recommends New Heights Communications to any law firm looking for a communications partner committed to fighting for justice. New Heights understands the importance of having a sound media relations strategy in place to navigate the complex legal landscape and ensure our clients’ needs are met. Their team is highly skilled in understanding the intricacies of legal cases and the media, and has the ability to navigate both with ease.”
“I have had the great pleasure to work with Christy and her team on a number of occasions over the years. As a seasoned communications professional myself, I know what it takes to get the job done and it’s always such a relief when I’m able to hire Christy because I know she’ll do all the worrying and work for me and get fantastic results. She is as fun as she is professional, delivers ahead of deadline and comes from a fantastic place of, ‘yes.’ And, her strategic political and communications advice is always on point. Christy and her team are gems.”
“The messaging house [New Heights] created for us was so good that it’ll actually help us bring partners along to talk and think about this bill in the way we’ve wanted them to do all along.”
Decades of experience in countering the far-right and empowering progressive causes, we’re your adaptable partner in shaping a sustainable and just future.
Our team’s unwavering dedication and strategic brilliance led to our victory in the 2022 Pollie and Reed Awards, a testament to our pivotal role in electing Pittsburgh’s first Black mayor, Ed Gainey.
