Who is SHE?
If you found this section of my website, then you MUST be interested in knowing a bit more about me, Jenny. In retrospect, this whole thing likely started back in 1996 when I began filming my friends and convincing my teachers to let me create videos instead of writing book reports...
Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, (Firestone Park) I attended the University of Akron in 2003 with the dreams of being an Art Teacher, then Graphic Designer, back to an Art Teacher and finally ending up in the Communication Department where I decided radio was my calling! (iHeart Radio would eventually ruin this plan.) I worked at WZIP, 88.1 on your FM dial, producing content for Night Rock and had the opportunity to meet Director John Waters. Yes, he signed my copy of Cry-Baby. I landed an internship with Time Warner Cable (RIP) where I filmed and produced an intro video for the Pro Football Hall of Fame and did a little camera work on the Akron Public Access Channel.
I graduated from Akron in 2009 and discovered that a degree in Mass Media Communications will land you on some odd interview situations. I began working with a marketing company in Cuyahoga Falls where I coordinated social media content and monitored the rebranding of the Akron Area YMCA. In 2010, Mimi Vanderhaven Magazine was interested in starting a video division to highlight locally owned businesses. I landed the position, grew to Senior Cinematographer and am honored to have built, produced, filmed and edited hundreds of videos for the company until 2018. There are a few awards I won while with Mimi and other video ventures I participated in (HGExpo.com), but if you want those details then you'll have to meet me for coffee.
SHE is a trusted collaborative that specializes in creating video content for small businesses and non-profit organizations. SHE believes that access to video content and good storytelling should be affordable to any local business in the community.
Who did it? SHE did.
