Jennifer Ogunsola is a writer and communications professional based in Atlanta, Georgia, who currently serves as the Global Marketing and Creative Services Manager for the world’s busiest and most efficient airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. She previously worked as a communications manager for Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed as well as Communications Director for Atlanta’s Workforce Development Agency.
As an accomplished writer, her editorial work, which focuses on lifestyle, wellness, news, entertainment and career, has appeared in Brooklyn Magazine, Black Enterprise, Upscale and TRACE magazines, on the websites of theRoot.com, Loop21.com and AOL’s City’s Best and she’s written shows for BET Networks.
Jennifer is currently a contributing editor for Brooklyn Magazine, where she has a monthly interview series entitled, “I Got a Story to Tell.”
Jennifer has over 15 years of experience in television, radio, print journalism, public relations and marketing. Jennifer’s communications career started out with guidance from a few great mentors in Philadelphia and New York City. She started off assisting the Program Director of one of the top radio stations in Philadelphia. And from there, she went on to write shows for BET Networks in New York City, and then got her first taste of Masthead presence as an editorial intern for TRACE Magazine. After seeing her name appear in print, Jennifer didn’t want to ever let that feeling go. She has been featured on television and in print and online publications including Essence Magazine, PBS’ Art Beat, XXL Magazine, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Women of Power, Atlanta Tribune Magazine, Examiner.com, Source Magazine, revolution.is, The Fab Empire, and other publications.
Jennifer understands how important it is to teach what she has learned, so she decided to become an adjunct professor at Goucher College and teach communications courses to graduate students in the Master of Arts in Management program. She has also served as the executive director of the Atlanta chapter of ColorComm: Women of Color in Communications, the only professional women’s organization focused on executive level women in communications.
Jennifer holds a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science from Temple University and a M.A. in journalism from the University of Baltimore. Jennifer is a Class of 2016 graduate of LEAD Atlanta, an intensive eight-month leadership development and community education program targeted at promising young professionals in Metro Atlanta.
