Coming from a business background with a creative eye and a certain charm, Jennifer Stevens is one that you would call a triple threat: precision, quality and care all come into play. Writing, the name of her first love, served as an outlet for her during those tween years of growing pains — so much, that she became a nationally and internationally published poet by age 11, as well as long fiction and non-fiction. The art of dress was another art form that she found, and thus developed an appreciation for fashion.

Jennifer has developed a network of well-respected individuals that work within the art and fashion fields. After working marketing and public relations positions for luxury brick-and-motor establishments as well as international e-shops and gaining a following from her tumblr, she decided to combine her two loves — writing and fashion, into one: she worked for several well-known fashion publications, where she previously served as a fashion and managing editor as well as worked on set starting as a stylist, which evolved into an editor and art director.

On a quest to use her BBA degree while being able to still work in the creative space, Jennifer took on a new path. Enter business development and sales: Jennifer moved into this field and served first as a manager for a SaAs platform that catered to top e-commerce companies. She gained the experience of being a ‘player coach,’ managing as well as mentoring others within the field to grow professionally and personally, while simultaneously bringing in wins from some of the best names in the fashion, beauty and lifestyle space. She then worked for a full service photo provider that specialized in offering all services for post production at a director level.

Today, Jennifer has taken her love for fashion, relationship building and communications to the next level at Straub Collaborative, where she is the Director of Business Development and serves as a partner in terms of finding, opening and operating the New York studio (SCNYC, a subsidiary) in the infamous Starrett-Lehigh building in Chelsea. Tying in her passion for connecting people with seamless communication and creative services, this is a great new chapter in her life that she is excited to partake in. And, she still participates as a CD/producer with some of her clients and is a model with Wilhelmina Models on the showroom board.

Jennifer holds a BBA from Baruch Zicklin School of Business and graduated in the top 10%, and also has a Psychology degree from the University of Pennsylvania; Foundations of Positive Psychology Specialization, where she had an average grade of 97%. She also still continues to mentor young individuals by having them recognize their true potential as well as helping them get placed at top companies.

Jennifer also writes résumés and bios... just like she wrote this one.
