Jennifer Sherlock: President
Jennifer was a full-time television reporter/anchor for more than eight years in the Atlantic City, Harrisburg and Philadelphia markets. She also began her own company – Jenna Communications, LLC – a Public Relations, Event Planning, Media, and Social Media Consulting firm in 2007. She currently continues to spice up the television screen part-time as a freelance reporter. She also began PR Tips of the week which she posts on her YouTube channel and her website which she then shares to the world thanks to social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more.
A graduate of Villanova University, she broke into Public Relations after interviewing her old boss at a media conference in New York City. He asked her to put him in the spotlight, and she did just that for him several times on national and local TV shows, as well as top business blogs, and mainstream newspapers and magazines.
Her fearless personality helped her pursue her dreams of being an entrepreneur. While missing her millionaire goal by age 25, she still is destined to make it happen. Jenna Communications, LLC is a dream she created long ago, and her website and her social media pages are proof of her passion for media, social media, and events.
When she isn’t working around the clock, you can find her running on Kelly Drive, playing with her sister’s golden retriever, or networking somewhere. (Twitter: @JennyBentley)
