Bumbershoot? We plucked the word from a beloved childhood flick to remind us to stay creative, work hard and have fun while we do it. It means umbrella...a metaphor we like to use for your brand. If we work beneath that bumbershoot, our efforts will help further the brand you've worked so hard to create.
Founded in 2009, Bumbershoot PR isn't your traditional firm. But then again, neither is our founder Tracey Zeeck. For more than 15 years she's worked with an array of clients nationwide, from big brand beers and the wide world of motorsports to franchises, entertainment, nonprofits and more. We collaborate when necessary with our tight-knit network of super-sharp tech- and media-savvy consultants across the US. As a result we can offer your company capabilities that far outstretch the average firm's reach. Our pay-as-you-play model helps keep costs down, too, because you're only charged for our services when you use them.
Above all, we're results-driven, we stick to the budget, and we make things happen. Because we love what we do -- whether it's media relations, guerilla marketing, writing, social media, special events, naming or even crisis communications -- our workdays always have that element of fun. We help clients develop cool ideas to keep them fresh in the public's eye, and we have the experience and know-how to bring those ideas to fruition. We enjoy short-term projects, but we do well with long-term relationships, too. We work in tandem with your company, either consulting or doing the bulk of the work ourselves. Whatever works best for your team usually works for us.
Thanks for taking the time to visit our site. Feel free to wander through and learn more about us. Then let's chat to see what Bumbershoot can do for you.

Tracey is a proud wife and mother who began her career in radio, but her desire to make a difference in the world drove her behind-the-scenes with a NASCAR series team. From there she led the national expansion of Victory Lane Kids™, a program that provided a day at the races for children with life-threatening illnesses. She has since provided strategic vision behind many national accounts including Orange Leaf Yogurt, 105 Degrees, Aspen Edge beer, Denver’s Office of Economic Development, and yes, even more of the wide world of motor sports.
She has managed her clients’ media relationships from obscure trade pubs and local news outlets, to TIME Magazine, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and everything in between. She sits on the board of 612 Creative Space, Mission Academy and Children's Museum of OKC. She is an active volunteer with deadCENTER Film Festival, Arts Council of Oklahoma City and World Neighbors. She’s a media connector, a writer, an event pro, and a concept-to-reality superhero who loves nothing more than watching her clients succeed.
