Jennifer Jenkins


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. 


Jennifer was named Top 40 Under 40 by Mobile Bay Magazine and has received the Professional Achievement Award from both the Public Relations Council of Alabama and the Southern Public Relations Federation.


A summa cum laude graduate of The University of Alabama with a bachelor’s degree in communications and marketing, she has more than 20 years professional experience in the field of public relations, marketing, advertising, research and communications planning. Throughout her career in public relations, Jennifer saw many businesses struggling with their public relations and marketing efforts, throwing away money on brochures, paid advertisements and other tactics that used the wrong message aimed at the wrong people. Jennifer founded JJPR with the goal of creating measurable public relations and marketing programs for businesses that produce results and drive their bottom line.
