Whether creating public outreach initiatives to help high schools achieve success, brainstorming with other professionals on new leadership programs, or sharing a client’s story, Jennifer Hamilton always aims to help others achieve their full potential.

Hamilton recently worked with FutureMakers Coalition to create a new educational campaign encouraging high school seniors to apply early for federal funding. The FAFSA first! campaign helped increase the region’s rate in Free Application for Federal Student Aid completion.

She received an award for the FAFSA first! campaign by the Southwest Florida Chapter of Florida Public Relations Association and has earned a number of other accolades over the years for her professional efforts.

Hamilton says she’s driven most by her passion and creativity. “I’m passionate about all things related to communications, public relations and marketing, and I strive to bring that passion into everything I work on,” she says. “I love that my line of work challenges me to be creative, to constantly push the bar in how I can tell a story, share a message and spread information on behalf of my clients. That’s what keeps me engaged and energized about what I do.”

Hamilton married her high school sweetheart, Billy, after college. Together, they’ve made a home for their identical twins, 5-year-old boys in Estero. They enjoy hosting evening dinners and drinks for friends and neighbors, along with spending the weekends boating, camping or visiting family back in Englewood.
