“I had read about Samantha and Pushing the Envelope and knew I wanted to work with the team one day. Fast forward to a few years later when we had an opportunity to collaborate with a consultant, PTE came to mind right away. Working with Samantha, Annelise, and Patricia was truly a professional experience. PTE took the time to learn the culture and mission of Ave Maria Law. We shared a vision with them and they ran with it. They consistently delivered, communicated on a regular basis, and met monthly to review reports. From press coverage to social media campaigns, PTE worked with us on solidifying the right opportunities and partnerships.”Kristy Kryszczak, Director of Marketing and Communications, Editorial Director

“We engaged Samantha Scott’s public relations and marketing firm, Pushing the Envelope, during my tenure as CEO of the Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida. At that time, some six year ago, the work of the Coalition was not very well known. It was important to staff that the firm working with us truly understood our critical missions of providing quality child care and early learning services to the community while at the same time supporting the providers of these services in their quest to continually improve.
Samantha and her staff truly got it right! They spent significant time with us and read up on the background of Coalitions and the value of early learning to the extent that they could not only speak knowledgeably about our initiatives to serve families – they became among our best cheerleaders. The firm capitalized on many opportunities to publicize our work through multiple media outlets, and educated us on the value of electronic social media. Additionally, they created numerous short videos explaining the Coalition’s services by the staff who actually provided them. These were readily accessible to the public via the internet, and very much helped to create broader understanding of the critical work of the Early Learning Coalition.
I wholeheartedly endorse the work done by Pushing the Envelope because I understand not only their professional commitment to excellence, but also their commitment to those important efforts that help to make Southwest Florida an even better place to live.”Kathleen H. Reynolds, Ph.D. Former CEO
