I am very pleased to announce that Jennifer L. Dome is the new AHF public relations and publications manager as of June 28. Jennifer replaces Katie Crawford, who has taken a marketing and public relations position at DAXKO, a Birmingham-based software company.
A New Jersey native, Jennifer is a 2001 graduate of Penn State University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a minor in Spanish. She received a master’s degree in journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in 2006. From 2001-2005 she was employed by Greater Media Newspapers in Freehold, NJ, moving up from copy editor to managing editor before leaving for Medill. While at Medill, she interned in the London bureau of Fairchild Publications. After graduation, Jennifer joined Time Inc. as an intern at Southern Living magazine. She served as assistant copy editor for Southern Living until March 2010. Since March she was freelance writing and copy editing for Hoffman Media in Birmingham.
Jennifer has also been very involved locally with the United Way Young Leaders Society, as well as serving as a volunteer with Grace’s Kitchen and the Time to Read program at Center Street Middle School. Please welcome Jennifer, as she takes charge of our print and electronic communication—including the print Mosaic, eMosaic newsletter, and “Kudzu Twines Journal” blog.
