TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Sachs Media is proud to announce that two of its outstanding team members have been honored as “Top Women in Communications” by Ragan, a leading communications industry publication. Sachs Media Partner and Director of Research Dr. Karen Cyphers, Ph.D., was recognized in the Data Dynamos category, and Account Manager Amy Climenhage, APR, was selected as a Rising Star within the industry.
Cyphers, lauded for her exceptional ability to blend precision and innovation in strategic communications, has led hundreds of opinion surveys garnering tens of thousands of responses, assessing public sentiment and helping to shape scores of clients’ strategies and messages. Her analytical prowess has significantly influenced public policy, including reshaping Florida’s Medicaid dental program for children, among others. Her work extends beyond professional realms into community justice, embodying the true spirit of a Data Dynamo.
Climenhage quickly established herself as a force to be reckoned with, guiding numerous initiatives for clients of Sachs Media’s public affairs and public relations practices. Among her many achievements were directing a successful early childhood education campaign to recruit teachers and advocating for access to rooftop solar panels in Florida. These and other achievements earned her a place among Influence magazine’s “Rising Stars of Florida Politics”.
