Sophie Maletsky is a renowned children's event planner and entertainer who’s always had a knack for working with kids. Trained as an actress, she pursued an acting career through college, worked Off Broadway in New York, and had roles in television and film. After relocating to San Francisco, Sophie was working as a nanny and helped plan her little charge’s birthday party. The kids told Sophie what they wanted, and together they made it come true. She turned garages into castles, back yards into train stations, and living rooms into ocean beds. It was a blast! Shortly thereafter the Sophie’s Stress Free Soiree business was born. For over 25 years, Sophie and her team designed and executed 150+ events per year for the young and young at heart. Her clients included Fortune 500 companies, Forbes 400 individuals as well as local libraries, towns and social service agencies.
