Valerie Jennings, CEO Of JSMM, Makes Cover Of KC Business Magazine
The magazine, which will showcase and celebrate those honored as KC Business’ Class of 2014 Influential Women, selected the photo above to use as the cover of the March Issue of KC Business.
Jennings started her business more than 10 years ago at the age of 24. Since then, she has worked with vastly different businesses in both the U.S. and overseas. She is a former award-winning print journalist, published author, news anchor and television producer.
According to the article, “From travel and tourism to technology, manufacturing and real estate, the journey has been rewarding. If she had to pinpoint one moment in time as an entrepreneur, it would be when she opened up her balcony doors to the sight of the ocean in St. Maarten, where she was on an international video shoot for her company to capture the essence of the island and its cultural attractions in music, arts and dance.”
In January, the magazine announced that Jennings was one of the 30 women chosen for this years class of Influential Women, which selects the most outstanding female business and civic leaders across Kansas City. She’ll receive the award on March 19, 2014 at the Influential Women Event.
