Background

Sophie Shafter is a PR-savvy professional with a passion for travel and an eye for detail. Sophie began her PR career in Alaska, hosting international travel writers and pitching stories of Alaska's vast beauty to major travel publications. Upon relocating to Georgia with her husband's military career, she continued to consult with national and regional clients. Whilst planning book tours in Atlanta and supporting marketing efforts for the region's newest multi-million dollar whitewater rafting course, Sophie also collaborated on marketing communications campaigns with Aflac at their corporate headquarters in Columbus, GA. She even met the one and only Aflac Duck! Soon after, Sophie was headed back west to Colorado, where she provided digital marketing support to NYC-based record label, Republic Records, developing artist messaging and getting the first listen to all the label's hottest releases. While in Colorado, Sophie collaborated with an esteemed local PR agency to produce educational health care events in the community, and secured the first local news broadcast of a robotic (minimally invasive) cardiac-thoracic surgical procedure. Sophie now resides in the Kansas City area and is available to consult with clients on a project-to-project basis.
