There’s nothing more satisfying to me than brainstorming, crafting the perfect pitch to communicate a strategic message and seeing results. After graduating from Temple University with a degree in strategic and organizational communication, I enjoyed a position in healthcare communications, and now work in travel/tourism PR. In addition to my full-time job and freelance work, I hold board positions with two area public relations professional associations.

- Competitive analysis
- Developing media materials including press releases, media alerts, media kits and personalized, strategic pitch letters
- Media outreach
- Blogging relations- building relationships with key bloggers in your market
Social media has forever changed the way people consume information and communicate with brands and one another. It can definitely be overwhelming. With so many sites out there, which one is right for you? After using social media personally for nearly four years and for public relations associations and brands for two, I can help you cut through the noise to figure out where you should be focusing your efforts.

Check out what others have said about working with me:
“Jessica is one of our top bloggers for Brazen Life, Brazen Careerist’s blog. She consistently writes smart, creative posts about careers and job search, and her copy is always clean. Best of all, she’s managed to nail the Brazen voice, writing in a personable and hip yet authoritative style. She meets deadlines and is great to work with. I’d hire her in a second.”
-Alexis Grant, entrepreneurial writer, digital strategist, managing editor of Brazen Life
“After working with Jessica on PPRA’s Communications Committee last year, I quickly learned that she is a proactive PR professional who is very savvy with social media and is good at getting things accomplished. Her skill sets and organization served as tremendous assets to the team.”
-Meredith Avakian-Hardaway, public affairs specialist, poet
“Jessica is one of those women who you constantly wonder “how does she do all that!?” Not only is she an accomplished PR pro by day, but her continual accomplishments with running, writing, and being the best version of herself is nothing less than inspirational and motivating.”
