Meet the Professional Socializer

Eleni’s track to a hospitality marketing career began practically at birth.  

As the daughter and granddaughter of restaurant owners, Eleni spent many a Saturday morning learning the ropes (and the responsibilities) of operating a successful restaurant.  Fast forward a couple decades, and she’s developed her passion for the hospitality industry – into a company of her own.  

Eleni brings a unique voice to the crowded social media jungle.  Sokos Social strives to fine-tune your business’ narrative and highlight its most popular features with fresh wit and a keen eye for details.  She is a passionate advocate for small business and her goal is to understand Sokos Social clients’ operations inside and out.  

A lifelong Bradenton resident (minus four years in Tallahassee as a Florida State Seminole), Eleni’s professional background includes marketing for arts organizations including The Ringling, home & garden consumer products, a chef-driven brewery specializing in the native flavors of Florida, and, of course, the hospitality industry.

She is the Networking Social Chair (go figure) of the Manatee Young Professionals, a past Board Member of the Hernando de Soto Historical Society, and a member of Leadership Manatee Class of 2017-18.

When she’s not Professionally Socializing, she is an active supporter of Realize Bradenton events and the PACE Center for Girls.  Eleni is an avid traveler and enjoys cooking, experiencing live music, and taking her black labs (Nola and Stella) on adventures.
