Jessica P. Gillespie

Chicago, Illinois

Hello + welcome. Thanks for stopping by!

I'm an Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving (ENFP) individual with a knack for digitally-integrated marketing communications. Over the past 5 years, I've traveled around the country serving clients in the food & beverage, health & wellness, sport retail consumer banking and tech industries in PR firms, advertising agencies, and as freelancer.

I am a public and people relations professional with excellent written, verbal interpersonal and intercultural communicaton skills. I'm experienced in social + traditional media relations, event planning, new business research, creative storytelling, acting a spokesperson/model for brands, and customer service.

To me, work is not a job. I thrive in environments that align with my core values of creatively removing barriers that allow us to connect at a deeper level and help each other. I like to improvise often and create solutions that are authentic, original, genuine, and useful for making life better!

I am a traveler that likes to find inspiration in different places, learn other local cultures, and learn the stories of people who live there (26 States, 3 countries and counting)
I have learned three languages: English, Spanish, French
I have a well-developed appreciation for the arts + aestetic beauty

I am also a certified yoga instructor with a love for Yin and Yoga Nidra (lucid dreaming mediation). So ask me about that!

I am always connecting with people via the social web but also like to meet and talk over a good cup of coffee, glass of wine, or even a bike ride. If you are so inclined, please reach out to me!

In meantime, feel free to get cozy + look around.
