I am an associate account manager looking for a role that will allow me to use my management skills and to continue learning and expanding my experience as an advertising professional.
My friends call me J-Lo, Jenny from the Block, and Jen-nay-nay. Take your pick. I hail from the land of 10,000 lakes (Minnesota) and yes, it gets cold there. I think sushi is the bomb. I recently graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s degree in Communications with an emphasis in Advertising and a minor in Creative Writing.
I appreciate inventive ideas and strategic execution sprinkled with a hint of humor. I am an urban adventurer and love all things city. I find beauty in the little details, the seemingly ugly, the unimpressive, and the often overlooked. I love to create, to inspire, to redefine. Organization is my middle name. Well, actually, it’s Joy; but organization does bring me joy. I see the glass half full. Sticky Notes are my BFF. I despise procrastination. I am never just prepared, I live 10 steps ahead. I believe you should never be too serious — laugh a little. Look for the good in life. Smile. I am as loyal as man’s best friend, minus the fur. I honor my promises, even the pinky variety. I am a perfectionist. I make everyone my amigo and ally. I am an enthusiastic learner and a dedicated doer. If projects were high school dodgeball, I would be the one the team captain call dibs on for their team.

Behold; my bucket list.
