Hello, my name is Jami Jacobs.
I am publicity and promotions professional, a teammate, a leader, a communicator, a dancer, a foodie, a movie enthusiast, and a Harry Potter fanatic. Albus Dumbledore once said, "It is our choices...that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities," and I agree. While I strive to enhance and increase my abilities, I also choose to be Loyal; I choose to be Caring; and I choose to be Proud. I've also chosen to be Passionate - passionate to learn, communicate, educate, and inspire.
I recently studied at DePaul University, in a nationally ranked PR program, and earned my Master's Degree in Public Relations and Advertising with a Concentration in Latino Media and Communications. I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for my undergraduate degree, in which I received a Bachelor's in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a major concentration in psychology and a Spanish minor.
I have been practicing communications for about six years, and currently freelance. A passionate project I recently worked on was for a local, family-owned business developing public relations and internal marketing strategies to increase a customer base and educate Chicagoans on winter car maintenance. Prior to that, I was an Account Executive at Fishman Public Relations, leading and supporting accounts across a wide variety of industries for franchise brands, such as restaurants, pet stores, and retail. In the past, I've been a Publicity and Promotions Coordinator at Allied Integrated Marketing. At Allied, I handled local integrated marketing campaigns for film studios, such as Walt Disney Studios and Fox Searchlight Pictures. I was also a member of the Allied Contigo team, the Hispanic outreach division of Allied. My responsibilities ranged from grassroots outreach to talent press tours to creating promotional partnerships for soon to be released movies.
