An entrepreneur at heart, Jennie created Deep Fried in 2004 after obtaining a degree from the Annenberg School of Communications at the University of Pennsylvania. Her vision was to create an approachable space where talented creatives could craft beautiful, memorable and effective brand experiences that increase the profitability of their clients. Under her supervision, Deep Fried has grown to an efficiently run full-service agency that serves the branding needs of some of the best-known names in regional business.

In 2018, Jennie was awarded the honor of Advertising Person of the Year for Agency Executive by the New Orleans Ad Club. She serves on the Board of Directors of the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce, and is the Vice President of the Alliance Française de la Nouvelle Orleans. Deep Fried is a certified woman-owned business and Jennie is a graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program. 

Jennie’s passion for advertising and interactive media was rooted in a childhood rich in exposure to the arts and an education structured with mathematics – the perfect marriage between aesthetics and functionality. Although a Quaker, Jennie hails from Baton Rouge, and bleeds purple, gold and black. She typically spends her free time in St. Francisville cooking meals for her large family, scouring antique shops and estate sales, or plotting her next trip to Paris. Her favorite things in life are historic architecture, white space, and checklists.
