Jennifer Sakowski

A decade ago, Jennifer was a member of AWI’s first site based off of NING (a social networking platform).  Her love for AWI’s authentic approach and community among the women drew her to “raise her hand” when Linda did a call out for volunteers.  Specifically, ones who were experienced in Social Media and WordPress.

Since then Jen has joined Linda’s team a Corporate Partner to help continue the mission on helping Women of Faith in Business achieve their desired greatness.

Jennifer has been told she is ambitious, goal & results driven, and annoyingly optimistic while handling challenges with grace and a never-say-die mentality.  She is a digital marketing strategist and web designer by trade but she is a born problem solver. When she is not talking to business owners on how to generate leads or leading Raney Day Design’s awesome “A-Team”.

When she is offline she is making precious memories with her 2 young kiddos and husband, living for football games, and ”Pj Masks” on repeat while throwing dance parties in the kitchen.

When asked what is her secret sauce in keeping it all together… simply put, caffeine and Jesus.
