About the speaker

Jenny spent her childhood in the woods of Tennessee with no running water and no electricity. What her upbringing lacked in television or convenient showers, it made up in opportunities to develop her imagination. With no formal education in advertising, she’s worked her way from proofreader to group creative director and built a portfolio that isn’t limited by genre, channel, or medium. From a brand-defining TV campaign for Sherwin-Williams to a game about life on the edge of poverty, her work always leads with a big idea, though you can never quite predict how she’ll bring it to life. She’s gotten props from Cannes, the One Show, the Clios, D&AD, FWA, the Webby Awards, the MIXX awards and the 4A’s, who named her one of the 100 People Making Advertising Great. Her work has been featured on/in CNN, NPR, Mashable, Wired, Creativity, Communication Arts, Archive, and her parents’ refrigerator door.
