Hi, I’m Jennifer.
I empower people and organizations to share their work with the world with communication strategy.
Let me make this happen for you.
Jennifer van Alstyne
I’m a communications strategist. I’m here to help your work get seen.
Sharing what we do in a way people can understand helps us better communicate and advocate for our work.
Having an online persona, a Googleable set of pages or profiles, is a great practice for communication.
For researchers and academics, clear communication about your work can help you
- connect with your community
- advocate for funding
- increase awareness
- develop a scholarly network
Are you ready to take control of your online identity?
What people are saying
Personal Website | Social Media Audit
“Working with Jennifer on the creation of a website was a wonderful experience. She took the material I provided — my CV, links to writings and other relevant information — and shaped it into a cogent site that is easy to navigate and deftly reflects the various dimensions of my long history as an art critic, educator, scholar and speaker…”
— Robert L. Pincus, PhD, art critic
Personal Website | Social Media Consultation
“As a new graduate student, I didn’t understand the impact that a well-designed website (read: simple, user-friendly, clear and accessible) could have on my academic work and networking. That is why it was so important for me to get to work with Jennifer.
Looking towards the job market in coming years, I am certain that having a website that presents a cohesive view of my work as a writer/scholar will be absolutely helpful.”
— Hannah E. Chapple, poet + ecocritic
