engaging audiences for clients.

Marketing & Social Media
Jennifer began her career in banking and finance, but since joining our team in 1997, she has been immersed in the travel and tourism industry. She has worn a variety of hats over the course of her tenure but her most enduring and remarkable skill is management of the team’s social media strategies, securing production assets by working with photographers, bloggers and other support contractors.
Jennifer is solely responsible for the growth of our social media presence; especially 365WashingtonState which now boasts over 115,000 highly engaged followers. Her success in using social media earned Jennifer an invitation to speak at a national e-Tourism Summit conference in San Francisco last year. She’s reached this height organically (without a single promoted post) through a combination of a solid editorial calendar, great content and dogged determination to launch a post every single day and “converse” with anyone who posts a question or comment.
Jennifer is poised to provide that kind of guidance and positive impact for your organization.
