Testimonial from Chef Paul Mattison: Chef Paul Mattison, proprietor and executive chef of Mattison’s Restaurants & Catering in Sarasota, Florida, is supportive of his longtime Marketing Director and excited to see her grow. Jen has been an intricate part of Mattison’s growth and success over the last 12 years. I am proud of the Mattison’s brand she helped build. Her expertise, both on a micro and macro level, made her an invaluable asset to our company. As a formally trained marketing professional, she brings a unique perspective that is original, highly creative, organized, and efficient. She is exceptionally responsive to the rapidly changing marketing landscape, especially with progressive strategies in social media, mass communication, and website design and management, all while balancing time and budget constraints. I am excited to see her business grow and will continue to support her in every way I can. Jen receives my highest regard and strongest recommendation, says Chef Paul Mattison.


Elizabeth Joy, General Manager, Mattison’s City Grille: “I have had the distinct pleasure of working alongside Jennifer for many years. Her enthusiasm and loyalty are a true inspiration to me. She will always get the job done no matter how long it takes. Over the years, I have witnessed many times when she has gone beyond the call of duty and job description if she believes it will help our business, such as going to City Commission meetings.  She not only is great at her job, but also great as a friend. Jenn is family-oriented with high moral standards and I would trust he in all areas of my life, both professionally and personally. She would be a great asset to any company’s marketing efforts by bringing her positive attitude and wonderful talent to everything she does.
