We’re looking for talented people!
Jennifer Harrison, APR
Jennifer Harrison, APRPrincipal & Founder
Jennifer has worked in education technology since the early days when teachers were first learning how to use PowerPoint in the classroom. Back then she drove the highways of California in a modified bus stocked with hardware and software from dozens of companies. That’s where she learned the ins and outs of education and gained first-hand experience in working with teachers. From there, she took over as public relations manager for PowerSchool, which was a darling of its time and has since grown to be one of the leading student information systems in K-12 education.

In 2001, Jennifer launched her consulting business beginning with early clients like Holt McDougal and Scantron. She developed a secondary specialty helping government agencies engage public outreach for municipal water and wastewater projects. Her company has grown to be the full-service agency now providing public relations for education technology companies and public education/outreach for municipal projects.

She holds a B.S. in animal science and reproductive physiology from the University of California, Davis and a M.A. in public affairs and issues management from California State University, Sacramento. The Public Relations Society of America honored her with advanced credentialing in public relations, Accreditation in Public Relations (APR).
