About Me

I love startups and founders because I’ve been one, myself: I bootstrapped Emphatic.co in 2014 and led it to a successful acquisition in 2017. Before Emphatic I created and implemented PR strategies for SF / Silicon Valley-based startups and VCs, and also for Fortune 500 companies like Cisco, AT&T and The Gap as a consultant with Brunswick Group, a strategic communications firm. And prior to that I worked in marketing, communications and business development for Citigroup in America and Europe. My approach is to blend Big Co. vision with hustle-fast-and-piece-it-together-for-less actions. Here’s what people who know me have to say:

“Jeniece was an invaluable member of her client teams at Brunswick. She was creative and resourceful with idea generation and extremely diligent in executing programs. Her social media skills and her ability to build impactful strategies were highly valued by clients. She was also a joy to work with — collaborative and fun!”
– Amanda Duckworth, Partner and Chief Marketing Officer – Kleiner Perkins


“Jeniece provides that rare blend of visionary thinker, creative problem-solver and solid client servicer. During her time at Brunswick, she quickly established herself as a go-to person on all matters technology, social media and content marketing. Client teams frequently sought her out because she was always a pleasure to work with and had so much to bring to the table.”
– Jason Golz, Global Head of Communications – Prologis


“Jeniece’s experience running and consulting with startups gives her tremendous insights into narrowing in on target markets, where to find them, and how to reach them at scale. She was able to quickly understand my business and immediately give great insights into where she thought I should focus my efforts, and I think she was spot on.”
– Mac Martine, Founder – Clyde
