“The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.”

– Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

Amy Summers

Founder & President

Amy Summers is a dynamic entrepreneur whose career unfolded in a rapidly evolving communications landscape.

Committed to ethical practices, her entrepreneurial journey ignited when she courageously took a principled stand at her first public relations agency job, leading to her swift dismissal by two female bosses she had previously trusted and admired. This pivotal and jarring career moment in her mid-20s eventually gave rise to the inception of her thriving and enduring PR agency, Pitch Publicity® and her unwavering passion for career building through mentorship.

Since 2003 and throughout her more than 20-year-history at Pitch Publicity®, Amy has executed hundreds of campaigns that have collectively garnered billions of media impressions worldwide. Notably, Amy holds the distinction of being the first publicist to orchestrate live media interviews at both low and high points of the planet: the scientific laboratory Aquarius, situated 63 feet beneath the sea, and the summit of Mount Everest, towering at 21,000 feet above sea level. Her influential career has earned her recognition as a PR News Top Women Awards Honoree in the Business Entrepreneurs category, a testament to her unwavering dedication to the public relations profession.

Amy’s visionary leadership extends far beyond her accomplishments in public relations. As a pioneer in remote work since 2010, she created a remote internship mentorship program at Pitch Publicity® that has launched more than 50 careers and fostered the growth and success of every young professional who has participated in her program.


Building on this momentum and desire to expand her mentorship reach, Amy embarked on a visionary venture in 2020, establishing INICIVOX®, a virtual mentorship platform designed to hone a diverse array of soft skills crucial in today’s intricate communications landscape. INICIVOX® has received acclaim for its groundbreaking “Identifying the Elephant in the Room” seminar series, addressing critical communication strategies surrounding racism and sexism. These impactful endeavors have earned her prestigious awards from PR News and New Hope Network’s Nutrition Business Journal in 2021 and 2023, respectively. Additionally, Amy’s pitching methodologies and success stories are showcased through her popular microcast and podcast “The Pitch with Amy Summers” and “Pitch Live with Amy Summers.”

Based in New York City, Amy attributes her successful career in public relations to her educational background at the University of Florida, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in public relations and had her first pivotal mentorship experience as an intern at the PR department of Shands Hospital. She has maintained her commitment to her alma mater, contributing her expertise through board service and as a virtual adjunct lecturer. Through Pitch Publicity® and INICIVOX®, Amy has propelled the careers of numerous professionals by “throwing a ladder down” to catalyze their success.
