Business Development

Jenny has always been drawn to “knowing people”, curious and eager to get to truly know others.  She was that little girl who waved and said “hi” to everyone. This along with slight OCD tendencies, made for a very antsy child. A social butterfly and renowned teacher’s pet in high school, she just had to get out of her small town. 

Jenny moved from Tennessee to Florida to simply “expand her horizons”.  She did exactly that and found herself in Daytona Beach, training to become a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines.  After a few years of “in the air adventures”, she decided to obtain a business degree and pursue some of her other passions.  She began volunteering her time working with and mentoring troubled youth through her church, and a few local schools. All the while, working for a local publication. This is where her love for all things advertising, marketing & sales came to be.  

As the director of Business Development, Jenny leads initiatives for each of the firm’s market types, with a focus on the residential and commercial practice. Her role includes strategic sales, targeting, offerings, relationship-building and client-specific marketing. Prior to joining the firm, Jenny worked at Naples Daily News, providing advertising and sales support to the real-estate team; one of the highest revenue builders for the paper. Jenny brings with her over 8 years of experience in advertising and sales. That paired with her passion for people, attention to detail and her commitment to the firm’s overall success, she is sure to make an impact.   

In her spare time, she enjoys wine, working out, listening to her husband play music and serenade her & exploring all that Naples has to offer.  After all, this is a wonderful city!
