I am Jenna-Lee, a motivated freelance journalist, digital audience analyst and public relations professional based out of St. Louis, Missouri.
Working in non-profit public relations and communication, small business social media management, and political media relations and communication has taught me how to effectively develop my skills in diverse situations allowing me to adapt to my client’s needs at a moment’s notice.
I believe that visual storytelling can be one of the most honest and compelling ways to convey a message. My passion for photography and multimedia has afforded me the skills and drive to create beautiful and effective visual elements and multimedia pieces to tell individual or organizational stories that connect with the average viewer.
A portion of my studies have focused on digital audience development, research, and engagement. The skills I have developed allow me to strategically grow digital audiences and analyze engagements to determine where organizational changes might be needed to enhance a brand’s online presence.
My professional goal is to be in a position where I can use words and visual media to convey powerful stories to the readers and viewers. I think that the sharing of knowledge is extremely important and that it is our job in communications to create a hunger among the readers and viewers to learn and experience more from the world around them.
I was born and raised near St. Louis, Missouri and attended Jefferson College, where I graduated with an Associates of Applied Science in Culinary Arts in May 2012. In 2019, I graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communications.
