Jennifer Miller

President Elect

Jennifer grew up in California and married her high school sweetheart. They both have a deep love for the mountains. The magical and fresh smell of pine trees and snow will always be one of their favorite memories. Since moving to Austin, they have fallen in love with the people, beauty, and BBQ.

People and processes are a deep passion for Jennifer. She loves building paths between people’s strengths and making processes personalized and productive. Through her years as a marketing professional, she has built marketing and sales teams from the ground up, guiding new strategies and growth in several companies. Marketing automation, paid advertising, lead generation, technology integration and optimization, SEO, content engagement, social media, etc. are all vital areas that Jennifer has maximized for companies. The most impactful elements of marketing are unique ideas from the people behind these channels making a company thrive and grow. These people are what has moved her to dive into building reliable and robust marketing teams as well as being heavily involved in the local American Marketing Association (AMA) Board. Marketers are a fun bunch, and being able to work closely with many marketers in Austin as President of the 2020 AMA Board is a great joy of hers. Investing in each other is what makes everything we do better. As Seth Godin puts it, “Marketing is driven by better. Better service, better community, better outcomes. Each of us is a marketer, and each of us has the ability to make more change than we imagined.”

  • Jennifer grew up playing the piano and pretty much loves any music where piano comes to life.
  • Organization is somewhat of an obsession. If you find Jennifer at a bookstore, you will likely see her alphabetizing and organizing the shelves as she peruses the books.
  • Purple is her favorite color. If you doubt how much she likes it check out the number of purple pens she has.
