Jessica Bates

Digital Media Strategist in Washington, DC

I'm a freelance social media strategist and community manager. I work with nonprofits, foundations and small businesses to develop their digital voice. I'd love to help you do the same!

Previously, I was the Director of Digital Media at Tenacity 5 Media. I helped small business and nonprofit clients create and amplify their digital presence.

Before that, I was a Digital Media Producer at the United Nations Foundation. Among other things, I was the digital lead for #GivingTuesday and helped launch the +SocialGood initiative.

And before that, I worked at the American Lung Association National Headquarters. As the Manager of Online Health Education, I was the community manager for the Freedom From Smoking Online program. I also helped initiate the organization's online presence.

The rest of the time ... I'm an avid reader, constant scribbler, and fan of all things purple. I'm also known for being a crazy cat lady, loving wrap dresses and #hashtags.
