Meet the Professional Socializer

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

As the daughter and granddaughter of restaurant owners, Eleni spent many Saturday mornings learning the ropes (and responsibilities) of operating a successful restaurant.  Fast forward a couple decades, and she’s developed her passion for small business into a company of her own.  Sokos Social is now a team of three experts who offer services including brand development and strategy, web & graphic design, print & digital media, and content marketing  to clients in the Manatee-Sarasota area.

Eleni and her team bring a unique voice to the crowded jungle of content marketing.  Sokos Social strives to fine-tune your business’ narrative and highlight its most popular features with fresh wit and a keen eye for details. We are passionate advocates for small business and experts in brand (visual and voice) development, whose aim is to understand  our 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 on the Leadership Board of the Manatee Young Professionals, a former 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,” Eleni loves to support Realize Bradenton events and nonprofits that empower women, like Women’s Resource Center and PACE Center for Girls.  Eleni is an avid traveler (ask about her Camino de Santiago) and also enjoys cooking, experiencing live music, and taking her furry roommates (black labs, Nola & Stella) on adventures.
