Thanks for stopping in! I’m Jennifer. I provide marketing and communications strategy and support, so…
… you have your cake and eat it, too.
… you can go outside and still get ‘er done.
… you can grow a business and a family.
All to say, you work to live rather than the other way round.
As a communicator, I help small and local businesses plug into the community, creating conversations and making connections. This can happen via website design, in articles or brochures, on social media, or simply by planning a good ol’ hoedown.
I got into Communications in the most roundabout way, though. I went to college to be a radio DJ, because I wanted to do radio promotions. Ended up doing traffic in a one-horse small town in Alberta, selling couches and chickens on the Tradio and playing country songs of heartache and hangovers. Then I sort of slid on over into the promotions spot I always wanted, doing cut-ins at the local rodeo and organizing the regional talent contest.
Far more years than you or I really need to count later, I am still planning events and selling chickens. Now I do it by providing marketing and communications strategy and support. I managed to hold on to the small-town everyone’s-my-neighbour attitude, too.
I love going outside, and I support causes like animals, nature and our environment. On the Colours spectrum I’m green but if you’re more into Myers-Briggs, I’m an INFJ. That means I’m thoughtful and have strong values which I’ve developed after making many, many mistakes. And, obviously, introspective.
I believe in balance – time spent in the office and time spent outside of it. I’m happy to share the ways I get my family outdoors, my thoughts on marketing and my favourite local haunts and products.
If you have any questions I haven’t answered or you’re seeking marketing and communications strategy and support, please email me.
A few things I’m proud of:
- I was valedictorian of my junior high class, and historian of my high school graduating class.
- I was hired in my first month of radio college practicum.
- It took ten years to get my Bachelors degree in Communications, but I did it – with honours!
- My kids are excellent travellers and they like vegetables. Which is impressive because I do not.
- I make a mean chocolate chip cookie.
