About US 

Cielo Consulting (pronounced SEE-el-oh) is a full-service agency based right outside of New York City in South Orange, NJ, specializing in People, Places, and Products in the social impact and lifestyle verticals. The team combined has decades of experience supporting the public relations (PR) and marketing efforts of some of the world’s biggest brands. Cielo’s small-to-mid-size clients reap the benefits of receiving the same caliber of support of a Madison Avenue NYC agency, but with a boutique firm that takes a collaborative 1:1 approach with its business owners to facilitate growth and consumer confidence. Our clients range from thought leaders, published authors, celebrity talent, nonprofits, entrepreneurs, and small-to-mid-size businesses nationwide.

Our Mission

We’ve Got Your Back! We bring brands to life using a multiplatform approach, blending together PR methodologies, advertising, and brand partnerships that drive awareness. We want our clients’ businesses to grow, which means our devotion is infectious — 90% of our new business comes from current clients and industry peers suggesting us. We know how tough it is for entrepreneurs and small businesses to survive and thrive, which is why we work so hard to get results for our clients as quickly and efficiently as possible. Can’t do a 12-month PR retainer? No problem. Want a DIY program with a strategy to do it yourself? We do that too (it’s called Cielo Compass and we can tell you more on a Zoom call if you’d like)! Our mission is for your peers and friends to say, “How are you getting all this press?” It’s our bread and butter and we take pride in the media coverage we secure for clients who normally wouldn’t be able to afford a Madison Avenue agency

Our Experience

Founder & President, Nubia DuVall Wilson, and her team have more than 20 years of experience launching national and international public relations and marketing campaigns for some of the world’s biggest brands.

Our track record

We place news stories that create return on investment and consumer engagement. Our core lifestyle categories include travel, health & wellness,  food & beverage, media/publishing, and entertainment.

Our passion

“Cielo” (pronounced SEE-el-oh) means “sky” in Spanish. We Dream Big and want our clients to do the same. We want our clients’ businesses to grow, which means our devotion is infectious–90% of our new business comes from current clients and industry peers suggesting us.

    Jared Koch

    Company: Founder of Clean Plates

    “It was a pleasure working with Cielo Consulting during the launch of our brand. Nubia helped speed up our discovery process by helping drive journalists to our trade show booths, and getting us earned media spotlights with different publications and influencers. She has an energetic and vibrant personality, and one can’t help but feel like she goes above and beyond to achieve our PR goals.”

    Gabriela Anggono,

    Company: Rookie Humans, Founder

    “Cielo Consulting offers the priceless blend of creativity, dependability and vision as evidenced in our recent #DisruptRacism Meme campaign that took our Facebook “likes” to an unprecedented high.”

    Audrey Rowe,

    Company: Community Coalition on Race, Program Director

    “I had the pleasure of being a speaker at an event for which Nubia handled PR. Every detail was looked after with artistry and care, and every aspect well organized, from the pre-event messaging and social media to the event itself. I would hire Nubia and Cielo Consulting for any event I do, for the peace of mind in knowing every detail was in good hands.”

    Dori Eldridge

    Company: Founder, Blossom Bar

    “I hired Cielo Consulting to support the Woman Warriors: The Voices of Change concert about four months before the Lincoln Center premier in September 2019. Their public relations and marketing support effectively helped us spread the word and fill seats with media, influencers, and the general public. Cielo became an integral part of my team by helping me launch a newsletter and social media handles for the concert, brainstorming innovative ways to expand awareness for the concert among its target audience in NYC through partnerships, and by facilitating local and national interviews for media coverage. They even took the initiative to handle pop-up issues, such as working directly with the Lincoln Center Box Office to organize the distribution of our VIP tickets. It was a pleasure working with them and they were an invaluable part of our tremendous success!”

    Amy Andersson

    Company: Producer and Conductor, Women Warriors: The Voices of Change

    “We hired Cielo a few months before we officially launched PlaneAire in 2018 and it really made a difference. Our communications plan was well prepared with our key messages, strategies, and tactics, which supported a successful launch. Within a week of launching, we received media coverage! Cielo has become an integral part of our PR and marketing efforts by developing and launching our national and regional ad campaigns, as well as keeping PlaneAire consistently in national press since launching in December 2018.”

    Deborah Lu Lynch

    Company: Founder, PlaneAire Travel Mist

    “Cielo Consulting has done a great job supporting me and my company, Oh The People You Meet. In a short time, they secured many highly-coveted morning news segments for me as a sustainable travel expert, including DC, CT, Vegas, and NYC — a notoriously difficult market to break into! They have a tenacious approach to securing opportunities and long-standing industry connections that have paid off, landing excellent thought leadership editorial for OTPYM’s inspiring content online and in print too.”

    Michaela Guzy

    Company: Founder of OhThePeopleYouMeet

    “I was overwhelmed by the success of my Grand Opening. Working with Nubia DuVall Wilson of Cielo Consulting was one of the best business decisions I have made to date. Nubia is professional – I always felt I was in good hands- and great to work with – Nubia explains the process and details at every step of the planning. Nubia got results for me through her dedication to my event. I just loved the partnership we formed.”

    Ellen Eppie

    Company: Founder of Scooch A Mi Boutique

    “My company, Lark Adventurewear, has had a wonderful experience with Cielo Consulting and Nubia. She is professional, dedicated, and was able to get us several TV, Print, and Digital placements. She works hard to understand your story and message. We have recommended her to many people and will continue to do so.”

    Pallavi Golla Patil

    Company: Founder, Lark Adventurewear

    “After a couple of months of working with Nubia at Cielo Consulting for my floral design business Wildly, I can say that I highly recommend them for any and all PR needs! They have great relationships with local publications and Nubia was a fantastic editor to hone my thoughts so they were optimally communicated. They organized pitches and set Wildly up with a PR plan going forward so I’m confident in continuing to get the word out about our little flower studio.”

    Josi Stone

    Company: Owner of Wildy

We could not be more pleased with Nubia Duvall Wilson’s commitment to our cause and her passion for making the best marketing and public relations connections for our nonprofit. Nubia is a creative, intelligent professional who brings warmth and amazing relationship-building skills to her work. She has taken the time to learn about the unique public relations needs of our nonprofit and the result has been an increase in our presence in the multiple media outlets and a dramatic increase in our social media presence.”
