Jessica Mand, CEO
I’m a communications leader who helps companies engage, inspire and activate employees, organizations and teams. My bread and butter? Consulting on communications strategy, content creation, editing, and creative communications projects. The secret to my success? I listen, then assimilate my client’s needs quickly and accurately. I personalize each client’s message to their chosen audience in a way that is memorable and meaningful. I help my clients succeed by communicating in an authentic voice to their audiences.
On a personal note, I am addicted to world travel (Iceland was amazing and Scotland was sensational). I'm a pet enthusiast and the proud momma of two beautiful rescue cats. I'm 'Auntie A Plus' to two delightful nieces and two fantastic nephews. I'm a postcard collector. A Scorpio. A dedicated stick-shift driver. An organic body care creator. A gourmand. And last but not least, I'm a creative communicator.
