About Us

Jenifer Howard

Founder/CEO
JHPR is led by Jenifer Howard, an experienced public relations executive with extensive corporate, agency and consulting experience leading high level PR initiatives and programs for major brands, causes and events.  

On the corporate side, Jenifer ran all of the public relations efforts that took MakerBot, a 3D printing company, from a small startup to being purchased for more than $400M and put 3D printing on the map. Jenifer was the PR director during the expansion from 80 employees to 600+ within the span of three short years. While at MakerBot, Jenifer led PR that was the driving marketing force for the company (no advertising was used, only PR), securing thousands of media stories, including cover stories with WIRED, Entrepreneur, the Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, TechCrunch, Engadget and many more. She oversaw PR efforts around several CES events (Consumer Electronics Show), garnering numerous awards for the company and its products and hosting press conferences to launch new products. She also directed the public relations for littleBits Electronics where she led the charge on promoting the company as it embarked on a $30M capital round and launched a retail presence in New York City as well as launching its first new major consumer product.

JHPR has also worked with major brands such as: Bristol-Myers/Squibb, Pfizer, Nestle, Dreyer's & Edy's Grand Ice Cream, Starbucks Ice Cream, General Mills, Kraft, Quaker Oats, Miller Brewing Company and Clairol. Music has also played a major focus and JHPR has worked on music promotions with the artists Sting, Vanessa Williams, Rob Mathes, Hunter Hayes, Smokey Robinson, Mavis Staples, Frankie Valli, Natalie Cole and others. She also has extensive experience working with authors and promoting book events with past client Just Books, which hosted such literary luminaries as Stephen King, Maya Angelou, Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright, Caroline Kennedy, Barbara Bush, Jodi Picoult, Eric Carle, R.L. Stine, Jan Brett and many others.

Jenifer and JHPR are also well-known for their work with nonprofits, helping them elevate awareness, media coverage and donations. She has had a ten+ year relationship working with with the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy, Swim Across America, Dana’s Angels Research Trust, Through the Eyes of Children and is a co-founder of RAMP, an organization that works to alleviate poverty and hunger in Appalachia. Recently, JHPR was retained by VoteRunLead, which teaches women how to run for office. With VoteRunLead, JHPR led PR efforts that took the organization from minimal media coverage to hundreds of stories and major national coverage. JHPR has also worked with nonprofits in the Connecticut/New York area such as Abilis, Greenwich Historical Society, the Greenwich Library , Arthur's Acres Animal Sanctuary, Swim Across America Fairfield County and the Connecticut Epilepsy Foundation.

JHPR forges strategic partnerships with other marketing consultants, branding companies, social media experts and crowd-funding marketing firms. Jenifer was a speaker at the 2015 Arthur W. Page Society Annual Meeting on "How CCOs Manage Global Expansion.” She is on the Board of the non-profits Through the Eyes of Children and RAMP.
