Jennifer Jenkins is a public relations strategist, entrepreneur, and a huge fan of Dolly Parton. A small-town girl from Alabama, she believes the power of storytelling is what grows brands.
In May 2010, Jennifer made a bold move to leave the hustle of the big agency world to create a life and career she loved. A wife and mom of three, she launched JJPR to balance her passion for helping others communicate and her love of family. She also wanted to create a company that provided a compassionate workplace, was deeply tied to the community, and connected strongly with clients.
Since that time, JJPR has grown from an upstart, solo public relations firm with one client to a team of eleven serving dozens of clients. JJPR ranked as one of the top three PR firms in the state by Business Alabama last year, and the agency’s client roster includes Alabama State Port Authority, AM/NS Calvert, BASF Corporation, Baldwin County Economic Development Alliance, Children’s of Alabama, Cirque du Soleil, City of Gulf Shores, Elisabeth Hays Creative Collective, ellenJAY, and Harvest Jewels, to name a few. Her firm has received more than 50 industry awards, and she has consistently earned recognition and leadership roles in her industry as well as in her community.
