Welcome to JKDJane!com

It's was a year of #Chaironthego in my role as 2017 National Chair of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). My 13-stair commute to JKD & CO was the easiest trip I had and led to work with Applewood Plumbing Heating & Electric, CASA of Jefferson & Gilpin Counties, serving as senior counselor to The Bawmann Group, marketing a healthcare clinic and developing campaigns for government assistance programs and telling a realtor's stories. That's all tossed into nearly 35 years of strategic counseling for businesses, nonprofits and government entities. I'm a strategist, a connector and a storyteller.

This is the spot for powerful, innovative public relations, marketing and integrated communications that generates business results with energy, creativity and impact.
