Jessica Proffitt Bracken
President

Jessica founded Proffitt PR over five years ago, nurturing the company atop tables at local coffee shops and bookstores. Since then, her hard work and diligence has helped the company to blossom as the leading public relations, advertising, social media and event planning firm on the Emerald Coast, with a host of accolades and loyal clients to prove it.

A native of Miami and long-time resident of Santa Rosa Beach, Jessica is highly involved in her “small but mighty” community, serving as a leader in several organizations including the Northwest Florida Coast FPRA Chapter, Business Empowered, Destin Women’s Club and Young Professionals at the Beach. As boss lady to an amazing army of high-heeled soldiers, Jessica can often be found throwing a party or handling business. But, of course, there’s always down time. When she’s not hustling alongside her Proffitt PR team, she loves globetrotting and gallivanting along 30A with her fluffy goldendoodle puppy, Champ. Jessica has been honored with numerous awards for her entrepreneurship and advocacy efforts by organizations and publications along the Emerald Coast.
