Vice President, Digital Strategies and Engagement

What would you be doing if you weren't working at JT?

I’d be an FBI profiler or a Diana Ross impersonator. Both are very important jobs.

Venita joined JT in May 2015 and brings over 15 years’ corporate and nonprofit digital strategy and marketing experience to the team. She provides clients with strategic counsel, conceives and implements digital campaigns, and manages search, display and social media advertising.

Over the course of her career, Venita has conceptualized and managed a wide variety of digital projects – from site builds to social media campaigns to content development to mobile apps. Prior to joining our team, she worked as a consultant, managing digital projects for The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, a global, cause-based, not-for-profit organization focused on better health through information technology.  She previously managed social media content and campaigns for American Airlines and a Warner Bros. Television project.

Venita’s work has been honored with numerous awards from the Association of National Advertisers (Multicultural Excellence Awards), the Association of Women in Communications, the Communicator Awards and the Publicity Club of Chicago.

A New Orleans native, Venita now lives on the north side of Chicago. She received her B.A. in Journalism and her M.S. in Integrated Marketing Communications. An ardent supporter of nonprofits, she serves on the board of directors for The Red Pump Project and the Voices of the Formerly Incarcerated.
