Jennifer leads account activities for several clients and manages operations and business development for Communiqué PR. She is the co-author of Strategic Public Relations: 10 Principles to Harness the Power of PR.

Why PR

There is nothing that gets me more excited then a compelling and complicated story. I love the challenge of figuring out the right way to share it, determining the timing and identifying all the necessary elements to bring it the story to life. It is deeply rewarding to see how media coverage helps our clients achieve their business goals.

Best PR moment

Since I began my career more than 18 years ago, I've always had a passion for bringing company stories to life. I loved the rush of helping a health care technology startup with a very intense period, when their software put them in the center of the world stage. We secured about 150 articles in 15 days. Things aren't usually so intense, but whenever I'm helping tell a client's story, I feel a great deal of enthusiasm. It's an exciting time to be in the business of communication.

Working on

I currently provide strategic counsel for a variety of Communiqué clients - Alaska Air, Mobidia and Tecplot among others. I also work closely with Colleen on business development activities for the firm.

Prior lives

Prior to co-founding Communiqué PR, I was with Waggener Edstrom, Tegic Communications / AOL, and AT&T Wireless Services (formerly McCaw Cellular Communications).

Extracurricular

When I am not working, you'll find me spending time with my husband, getting together with my book club, which includes four friends from college, enjoying a yoga class or planning my next dinner party. I'm also a member of the board of trustees for Villa Academy.

Education

I graduated from the University of Oregon with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration. I was also fortunate for the opportunity to study at Nijenrode (now Nyenrode Business Universiteit) in the Netherlands, where I earned an international business diploma.
