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 part of the Digital District team (check us out at @DigitalDistrict). I'm also known for being a crazy cat lady, loving wrap dresses and #hashtags.
