As she continues her role for the 2nd year, HESA’s Director of Communications Sophie Santillan happily brings over 10 years of entrepreneurial consulting baggage with her. Working in both the government and private sectors, internationally high-profile and low-key clients, she’s infatuated with finding ways to make business more efficient. Mixing traditional business approaches with a dab of technology and a sprinkle of measurable results, Sophie wholeheartedly believes in working smarter, not harder. Hailing from New York City, Sophie is a proud dog-mom to Ashes & Charlotte and enjoys mastering the art of sleep. She is completing her ALB this year with a double minor in Government and Environmental Studies.
