Professional info​

A global public relations leader, Jennifer has been at the center of digital communications since the mid-90s when she helped launch the dot-coms that defined the decade.

By the early 2000’s, she began integrating social media channels into communication strategies and harnessed the power of peer-to-peer engagement to connect brands to customers and drive media coverage. 

In the mid 2000’s, she was among the first to blog about social media marketing and led award-winning digital and social media engagement campaigns for Fortune 500 companies. 

Today, she is a global marketing communications leader who helps brands connect with their audiences and converts calls to action through media relations, thought leadership, content marketing and digital communications strategies.

Jennifer has also successfully co-written and co-produced an animated feature film, written and performed stand-up comedy and is an abstract artist in her free time.
