Our Mission

At Eco Smart PR, we are dedicated to making our world a better place for everyone.  We do that by helping our clients promote green policies, practices, and technologies. Our avenue to achieve this is the public education campaign. We find our audiences, we talk to them, and then we move them. We know we have achieved success when we become integral to our clients’ strategic planning process, and when we reach that point where our clients are not only our partners in positive change, but also, our friends.

ABOUT US

Our Profile

Based in both Melbourne, Florida and Albuquerque, New Mexico, ESPR combines decades of general communications expertise with an acute understanding of environmental issues, and relies upon a network of subject area experts to advise on them when needed.

President

Whitney Waite

Whitney brings more than 25 years of strategic communications experience to all EcoSmart PR campaigns and programs. As a 20-year business owner in New Mexico, a graduate of the University of Miami (Florida), and former Director of Marketing and Public Relations at Florida Southern College, Waite’s lengthy career in communications has been marked by professional projects, education, and family ties in both Florida and New Mexico. Prior to opening the doors at TWC, Waite managed political campaigns and campaign communications for candidates and elected officials running at the local, state, and federal levels. Her unique background and perspective earned her a four-year position as a regular panelist on New Mexico’s PBS public affairs television show “In Focus.” Waite grew EcoSmart PR’s parent company from a back-bedroom startup to a multi-million dollar, top-ranked PR company in less than five years. She holds a BA in Political Science and International Affairs from the University of Miami, Florida, and a post-BA teaching certificate from the University of New Mexico.
