From the moment our engagement began, Impact worked diligently to share important announcements, garner media attention and establish me as an expert, both locally and nationally. The initial wave of publicity not only boosted our visibility but translated into tangible connections within the community; customers have walked into the store recognizing us, and around town, people have stopped me to say they’ve seen our story. I couldn’t be more grateful for Kayla, Kristin and Filomena’s expertise and dedication in making this happen.

First impressions are crucial, which is why we’re glad we partnered with Impact PR to introduce PDQ into the Long Island market.

We started with little to no brand awareness in New York; we were not a known entity. The Impact team got right to work, mindfully introducing our fast-casual brand to this new audience and elevating us in a way that is paying off far beyond the initial engagement. To this day, our New York locations are thriving!

The entire team at Impact PR was responsive, communicative, and helpful. They went beyond traditional media exposure and PR, getting us in front of the right people – and so many of them – quickly. We truly became integrated with the community and know that, without their help in Long Island, we might not have had the success in that region that we do today.

Jeffrey Kamis, Vice President, Media and Public Relations, PDQ Restaurants


I’ve had the pleasure of working with Impact PR for over 8 years, spanning two different companies, and I can confidently say that Filomena and her team are nothing short of exceptional. What sets Impact apart is not just their impressive track record but their unwavering commitment to excellence. Filomena’s leadership is reflected in every aspect of their work—be it their strategic approach, follow-up procedures, or the genuine authenticity they bring to every project. Working with them is more than just a professional collaboration; it’s a partnership built on trust and mutual understanding. In my extensive experience, Impact PR has consistently proven that effective public relations is not just about media coverage; it’s about crafting a narrative that authentically represents your brand. Choosing Impact PR is not just a business decision; it’s an investment in a strategic ally that understands the pulse of the market and knows how to make your brand shine. I wholeheartedly recommend Impact PR to any business looking for a PR partner that goes beyond expectations.

– Janet Hadjar, former Vice President of Marketing, Family Trust Federal Credit Union

While Impact PR is technically an independent entity, we have come to think of them, and rely on them, as an integral part of our internal team.  Their guidance, professionalism, experience and attention to detail has proven to be indispensable to our organization and critical to our success and growth.  Our projects are varied in geography, asset class, construction, investment type, and otherwise.  The effective communications strategies that Impact has crafted and managed for us on these various projects are thoughtfully designed, specifically tailored, and always geared towards the individual goals of each project.  The implementations of these strategies in tandem with our project implementation has become a core tenet of our business plan and has markedly increased our ability to execute.

Matthew Earl, Chief Operating Officer, Reynolds Asset Management


Working with Impact throughout our engagement was nothing short of fantastic.  Filomena and her team were always proactive, on top of their game, professional, and creative in their media promotion of our event.  We could not have asked for better results from them.  I look forward to working with them in the very near future.

Lucky enough to work with Impact PR for more than five years, their team drove significant earned impressions throughout our partnership to keep the Orchard top-of-mind across the Hudson Valley community and beyond.

Filomena and her team at Impact PR are not just a great and helpful PR team, but they are a legitimate resource! Especially in the Hudson Valley, NY region. We would not have been able to get public approvals for our senior housing project without their advice and connections.

Ken Spillberg, SVP of Development, Omni New York 



We cannot thank you enough for the comprehensive work you did for us and with us, from setting context, to planning a timeline to execution of the plan, to sharing contacts and resources. The board was so pleased with the exposure the Foundation got in print, on the Web, and on the radio waves.

 Angela Henry, Executive Director, Poughkeepsie Public Schools Foundation


We started working with Filomena a few years ago. Fil and her team immediately took a personal interest in both our projects and in us. Filomena helped us think through how to get our message out to the community, and how to do so in a thoughtful way that would be effective. She was thoughtful about our budget and her team was effective and a great partner. We would recommend them!

– Jacob Reckess, President, PAZ Management


The Team at Impact PR is AMAZING!!! I had partners that were skeptical in the beginning, in reviewing our 1
st quarter of engagement, their response changed to “Worth every penny!!” We look forward to our continued growth thanks to Filomena, Kristin, Kate and the team.

I honestly do not know where to start but I just have to say first I LOVE WORKING WITH IMPACT PR. Kristin, Kate, Filomena are some real rock stars. From the first meeting the dream team got right to work asking questions, listening to my vision, adding insight/creativity-the glitter and gold. I contacted them for the purpose of building the brand. Now that we have created more relationships, impacted our community, saw growth to our bottom line. These are the results that we can quantify.

The team at Impact PR has proven to be one of the most effective pr firms I have ever worked with –and I’ve worked with many throughout the years. Filomena and Kate not only rose up to the challenge of meeting the goals we discussed, but they enhanced those goals with intelligent input and insight. They stayed in constant communication with us and produced exceptional results for our organization. There was none of the hot air that some pr gives you—they were all substance, hard work and persistence. We could not be more pleased with their performance.

– Lynnne Meloccaro, Executive Director, Dutchess County SPCA



We hired Impact PR after considering several different agencies. We were concerned that this local company would not have the reach we needed. After meeting Filomena and speaking with the team we decided to give them the opportunity to help us with our announcement. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. They are professional, timely, efficient, reasonable, and they are excellent at what they do. They were able to get us placements, interviews, stories, features, etc. We were thrilled with the team on all levels and are very glad we had the opportunity to work with them. The team was excited about our project and supported us both professionally and personally. We highly recommend and will use Impact PR in the future.

Words cannot express how thankful I am for our partnership with Impact PR & Communications. The way the Impact team coordinated the media during our annual Medal Ceremony, from start to finish, was extraordinary; having them there to take control was a huge relief. I’m so pleased with how they kept the media organized and informed, and I’m thrilled with the resulting coverage. Impact is an awesome team.

Working with the Impact PR team is an exciting, educational experience that has truly been one of the most effective I have enjoyed in my career. Their insights and activities result in meaningful exposure for our company – more valuable and more cost effective than we could have expected through traditional advertising. Each time I talk with any of them, I get an enthusiastic, knowledgeable professional on the other end of the line. Without hesitation, I would say that the relationship I have with Filomena and her team is one of the most powerful tools in my toolbox.

– Kim Bellavia, Vice President, Tompkins Financial Advisors



As a filmmaker traversing the rocky terrain of Hollywood, I knew I would need a different approach to promotion for the East Coast Premiere of my film ‘No Alternative’ in my hometown of Westchester, New York. Kate Wark and everyone at Impact PR & Communications took the project, and its hot-button themes, head on and were able to generate tons of momentum, including newspaper cover stories, television coverage and radio interviews. While they’re adept at high-profile media coverage, I needed a more grassroots, regional strategy for this project, and that’s exactly what they delivered. For a period of a few weeks, no one in Westchester could avoid hearing about ‘No Alternative!’ If that’s not successful public relations, I don’t know what is!

– William Dickerson, No Alternative Filmmaker



The Millay Society is thrilled with the Impact PR team’s professionalism, attention to detail, and most of all, results! After researching our project, they placed articles in several A-list publications including The New York Times. Unlike PR groups that assign one account executive per client, Impact PR offers the whole team’s talents and skill sets to tackle issues as they arise, all under the close eye of their CEO and founder. We were impressed by their high level of expertise and consistently creative, positive approach and are happy to recommend their services.

– Holly Peppe, Literary Executor of Edna St. Vincent Millay, The Edna St. Vincent Millay Society at Steepletop

Impact PR’s expertise guides us. The team’s proactive outreach helps us get the impact of our work on children and families out to the community and, when opportunities arise, help secure media placements, awards and grant funds. It’s like having a right-hand person on staff. We love all their touches – the update reports, regular communications and impact of our work together. They don’t stop until all our needs are met, and celebrate our victories with us. I don’t know what we’d do without Impact.

– Sonia Barnes-Moorhead, Executive Vice President, The Children’s Foundation of Astor



ADK (Adirondack Mountain Club) wanted to refresh its brand on a tight timeline and with a set budget. The team at Impact PR & Communications rose to the challenge.

We could not have asked for better partners on this project.

Working with Filomena and her team is incredible. First they get to know you, your value system and your business before they make any suggestions. Second, once the proposed releases start flowing, there is a genuine give and take regarding the thoughts, wording and presentation. Third, the finished product is something that you and Filomena’s team can take great pride in. Finally, Filomena’s industry contacts in getting the word out and press releases published are incredible.

– Jeffrey M. Feldman, Partner, Feldman, Kleidman, Collins & Sappe LLP



Impact PR is absolutely great to work with. Their quick turnaround time on pieces proves their efficiency time and time again. They are always thinking outside the box and presenting angles and sources we would not have thought of on our own. They have proven very helpful in publicizing our business by writing and sending press releases and securing expert by-lined articles by some of our staff. They are our go-to source for connecting us to the important local press outlets.

– Michelle Martinetti, Marketing Manager, Gold’s Gym Dutchess County

Thank you so much for everything your team has done for us and for how much help you have been with the growth of our business. I truly believe that the impact (some pun intended) you have had on our business is immeasurable. When I first opened my practice, I was given some advice: If you want to strive to be the best physical therapist, surround yourself with only the best in every other profession you need to deal with. I knew from day one I found that in working with you!

– Justin Feldman, Owner, Feldman Physical Therapy


Filomena and the team at Impact PR know their craft. They bring to the table top-notch PR expertise.

She gets the job done.
