Jennifer Lindsay / Social Media & Content Strategist
Jennifer Neeley Lindsay is a two-time Emmy nominee. She worked at ABC-TVâ€™s San Francisco affiliate for three years where she was senior producer and online journalist, leading to her graduate studies at Columbia Universityâ€™s Graduate School of Journalism where she earned her masters degree.
Prior to being recruited by ABC, she was a pioneer in Internet news, now referred to as new media, translating television newscasts into an interactive format for the short-lived startup ReacTV, later called Zatso.
She was also a Peace Corps volunteer in Turkmenistan, and later freelance news correspondent in the region; a reporter, producer and executive producer for the CBS affiliate in Fresno, California; an intern for CNNâ€™s San Francisco bureau; published articles and editorials in countless magazines and newspapers, and was a college radio personality in Berkeley and Davis, California as well as Lund, Sweden, where she was an exchange student.
An LBJ Congressional Intern and nationally-ranked debate and individual speech champion, she holds an MS from Columbia Universityâ€™s Graduate School of Journalism, an undergraduate degree with distinction from the English department at University of California at Berkeley and as well as a certificate in acting from the American Conservatory Theater (ACT) in San Francisco.
She is also an accomplished singer, actor and performer. She currently lives in in the San Francisco Bay area where she has co-founded ResumeMastery.com, a resume-writing company which partners with small to mid-size recruiting firms and consults with individuals. She is now Director of Digital Services, Social Media Evangelist / New Media Guru at Eastwick Communications. She maintains her independent consultancy work in Content Strategy and Social Media, having just completed a complete content strategy arc for an up-and-coming social network.
Jenniferâ€™s hobbies include acting, singing, dancing, surfing, beading/wirework, watching just about any sport with her lovely English sports-journalist husband, and generally being a ham â€” which comes as no surprise to those who know her.
