"I can't say enough wonderful things about Jennifer Boden!
As a journalist myself for almost three decades, I have yet to come across a fellow colleague who was so together, organized, professional, savvy and all around fabulous, until Jennifer. She is at the top of her game to be sure. Recently, I took my press/media hat off for a bit to take on the position of Auction Director for a long standing charity auction of 35 years. It was through this position, that I really got to see Jennifer in action. She was invited to the weekend's auction events and as a member of the press - she was on task and wrote the best stories and provided incredible social media for the event too. It was nice to see how productive and impressive a truly passionate journalist can be when they are doing what they love. Kudos to you Jennifer! I look forward to recommending you again for many events to come. My media hat is back on now and I can't wait to join you at our next adventure!"

"She was a total joy to work with. I wish she could be cloned!
I've worked in media relations for 35 years. It is a fast-paced, competitive landscape which has gone through a major evolution over time. It's rare to find someone who understands 360 degrees of media impact from accuracy, context and messages to delivering the information to a broad and diverse audience. Jennifer possesses that rare quality of producer, actor, director and can execute the finer details always imbued with a big picture viewpoint. We recently collaborated on a major wine festival and she was a total joy and pro to work with. I wish she could be cloned!"

"Jennifer Boden's articles on the V Wine Celebration events are always a must-read.
Jennifer captures the essence of the multi-day series of events and relates the mission and message of the V Foundation in an enjoyable read. She is a great ambassador in bringing awareness to the extensive fundraising efforts in the field of cancer research. Jennifer is a pleasure as a guest of the V Wine Celebration and immediately turns around a story that summarizes the success and celebration of all the researchers, donors, and vintners. She is a true professional with quality work. We love having Jennifer as part of the V family."
-Jane Baer, Managing Director at The V Foundation, August 9, 2019
"Jennifer is a true professional whose multi-tiered approach really delivers.
Her skilled work with The Phoenician on our 2019 summer campaign resulted in great exposure for the AAA Five Diamond resort. Most impressive was her collaborative nature and creativity. She "gets it." From her extensive article to her social media efforts, Jennifer produced for us. We look forward to working with her again in the very near future."
-Denise Seomin, Director of Public Relations at The Phoenician Resort, June 5, 2019
"Thanks to Jennifer, I'm gaining a larger audience beyond our broadcast range...
I'll start with a couple things I like most about Jennifer: She's extremely supportive and reliable. Jennifer and I met years ago during the Mendocino Film Festival where she helped me coordinate a very nice one-on-one interview with Pierce Brosnan and his wife Keely about their documentary film "Poisoning Paradise". Since then, she always thinks to include me in fun and informative stories around the Bay Area. Many of them have surprised me, even though I've been covering news in this market for almost 30 years. More important, she's given me invaluable guidance to help spread awareness about my stories online. Thanks to Jennifer I'm gaining a larger audience beyond our broadcast range here in the Bay Area. Jennifer's own work is remarkable. All of her KRON articles rank on the first page of Google and she’s committed to cross-promoting her stories through her personal social media channels. In addition to having a knack for connecting with readers, she always finds the right mix of fun and sophistication. Good travel experiences, in picturesque, bucket-list settings showcasing the myriad beauty of California and beyond. Her storytelling makes you feel like you're there... and then want to be there."
-Ken Wayne, Anchor at KRON-TV, June 4, 2019
"Jennifer does and incredible job of relaying her experience to a wide audience..
Over the past year we've invited Jennifer to my family's winery to enjoy a few tastings and events. She is an absolute pleasure to hang out with and she has helped us grow the awareness of our winery. Jennifer does an incredible job of relaying her experience to a wide audience on both traditional and new forms of media. We look forward to working with her more in the future."
-Jason Lede, Brand Manager, Lede Family Wines, May 8, 2019
"...I have never encountered someone as savvy as Jennifer.
I have worked in broadcast television for more than ten years and have never encountered someone as savvy as Jennifer. She is a thoughtful, talented and detail-oriented writer—and working with her is a breeze. With ever-changing marketing trends and the emerging prevalence of social media, Jennifer is lockstep with the fluidity of the business. The proof is in the pudding with her social media reach and SEO strategies—Jennifer gets results!"

"I really enjoy working with Jennifer!
She’s friendly, easygoing and always provides comprehensive and thoughtful coverage for Boisset Collection. Most recently, she featured our culinary delights at Yountville’s Atelier Fine Foods and wine tasting at JCB Tasting Salon in her KRON 4 News article that focused on her trip to Napa Valley. She also spotlighted Raymond Vineyards in her Napa Valley Film Festival write-up as well as our new Healdsburg Tasting Salon in a great social media post on her popular Dine and Travel Instagram page. Jennifer captures every visit perfectly and I appreciate her commitment to gather pertinent followup information and quotes from our team to bring more depth to her articles. She's a true professional and we’re excited to invite her to our next event at Boisset Collection."

who is not afraid to ask questions, is excellent with following up and immerses herself in whatever it is she is writing about.

"Her article was one of the best I've read...
I recently had the pleasure of spending time with Travel Writer, Jennifer Boden. I was her driver and private sommelier during an Autumn trip to wine country. We visited some of the best wineries in Sonoma, including The Donum Estate, which I highly recommend for those who love pinot noir and thoughtfully curated art. My trip with Jennifer and her guests was memorable and fun. After the tour she wrote a fantastic article on her experience with Bin 415. Her article was one of the best I've read about touring beautiful wine country, and I can't wait to organize another tour for her again soon!"
-Michael Lagau, Owner-Operator at bin 415, November 16, 2018
"Professional, amazing to work with and a great writer and communicator...
Just a few words to describe Jen! I appreciated being kept in the loop on the article she was writing, on top of it being a great piece (SEO-helpful and interesting!)."
-Meg Paynor, Owner-Operator at Paynor Public Relations, November 16, 2018
"Energetic, amiable, reliable and sincere...
are just a few of the adjectives I'd use to describe Jennifer. I had the pleasure of working with her as a source for several of her travel stories. She really knows how to bring an event to life in her writing,, calling out details that make you feel like you were part of the action. I have also been impressed with her follow through, accuracy and the SEO impact her stories have had on results. It's always a pleasure to work with Jennifer."

Jennifer is extremely easy to work with and approaches every opportunity with the utmost professionalism and a results driven mindset. Her travel pieces are ideally suited to our audience and provide an authentic and trusted voice to the community.
