Public Relations

about Amanda Sorena

My Experience 


I am a public relations specialist with over 10 years experience in the publicity, marketing and event planning fields.  

In 2009 I moved to Houston, Texas and began work as a public relations freelancer before creating Sorena Public Relations. My clients have included Parry Botanicals, Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka, Mom Corps Houston, Mom Corps Seattle, and Premier Baby Planning.  I also work with the non-profits Wesley Community Center, Justin's TRIumph, and Bellaire Area Moms of Multiples. 

Prior to founding Sorena Public Relations, I was a publicist at Pixar Animation Studios. I worked on the theatrical and DVD releases of "The Incredibles," "Cars," "Ratatouille," and "WALL-E" and was responsible for the execution and logistics for premieres, junkets, press days, and events surrounding awards season. In addition to my feature film responsibilities, I spearheaded the campaigns on short film publicity for "Presto" and "Partly Cloudy." 

Before moving in-house at Pixar, I worked for several public relations agencies focusing on luxury, lifestyle, and food categories. 

I am also a mother of three beautiful children all under the age of six.
