While Literary and Entertainment is her specialty. She has extensive branding and public relations expertise in the construction, aerospace, hospitality, beauty/fashion, non-profit, medical, environmental and oil/gas sectors. She was Office Manager for the USA Office of a UK/Nigerian oil company in which she helped established its USA identity. After that she was President of the Southeast Writers Conference where she lined up the conference program that helped match/network writers with publishers, agents, editors and other industry executives. Miranda then took a position as Director of PR for a mid-size NYC publishing house where she was key in book promotions, publicity campaigns and brought many authors to bestseller status and national recognition during her tenure there. After that she decided to start planning to start her own PR firm and while she was developing this company, she took a job as an Office/Marketing Coordinator for a large Houston construction company where she assisted management, staff and helped plan and create day to day marketing endeavors. Leaving there she landed her first client for MS Film PR Literary, moved the company to Los Angeles in 2011. Her very first client is still a client to date. Spigener-Sapon has coordinated and created client PR segments on national outlets and shows such as Larry King Live, Fox & Friends, KTLA, NBC, Nightline, Today Show and has clients featured in top print such as: Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, New York Times, All You, Variety and countless new media outlets, blogs, etc. Miranda loves what she does for a living, what makes her smile when she’s not working is, “I love being silly” she says, “especially after long days to just kick back and be corny with loved ones or close friends. I also love helping others whether through philanthropy or just encouraging a friend to go for their passions. Seeing the accomplishments of friends is really something to smile about.”
