Let's learn more about Jen:

Q. What do you do at HelloWorld?

I head up the two creative sides of our business: the go-to-market strategy/execution for our company and the creative team that develops our client campaigns.

Q. Sounds fancy! What was your very first job?

My very first job was selling shoes with my friends at a place called Heart and Sole at age 15.  

Q. How did you get interested in your chosen field?

Growing up, I aspired to be Jane Pauley, the host of “The Today Show.” I soon realized that I much preferred using my creativity behind the camera rather than in front of it.

Q. What is the most unique experience you’ve ever had?

I would say flying into and walking around an active volcano, with my heart pounding out of my chest, with my coworkers and Bill Nye the Science Guy while shooting the “Volcanos” show. 

Q. Other than marketing, are there any little known facts about you or hidden talents?

I was in a rockabilly band for a short time when I lived in Seattle.
