Jess is an account associate at Inspire specializing in social media strategy and management, content development, copywriting and photography.
Prior to Inspire, Jess worked as marketing coordinator for Rise Brands, the company behind Pins Mechanical Co. and 16-Bit Bar+Arcade in Columbus. Her role evolved from traffic and project management to social media and content strategy. The opportunity to test the waters in different areas of marketing led her to discover her passion for brand strategy, content creation and social media management.
While in college, her love of music led her to internships in public relations, promotions and marketing at radio stations in Columbus and Seattle and at Sub Pop, a record label in Seattle. Through those internships, she honed her social media management skills, assisted in event planning and execution, designed posters and social media content and wrote PSAs, one sheets, press kits and promotions recaps.
Jess graduated from Denison University with a bachelor’s in psychology. At Denison, she served as the PR director and art director of the student-run radio station, 91.1 WDUB, for three years. As PR director, she coordinated and managed marketing meetings, ran the station’s social media accounts, developed and updated the website and created promotional plans and materials for concerts and events. Her experience with 91.1 WDUB sparked her interest in public relations and social media.
In her free time, Jess enjoys playing guitar, photography and discovering new music.
