Jennifer Spears

Assistant Account Executive

Jennifer is a true Michigander, hailing from East Lansing before moving to Ann Arbor for college and finally to Detroit after graduation. She loves living in Detroit and being a part of the vibrant community, professionally and socially.

She has a professional background in marketing and journalism, and served as an Americorps member with City Year Detroit, working as a tutor in a Detroit public high school and organizing in-school and extracurricular events.

When she’s not at work, Jennifer likes doing yoga, going to brunch or the movies, biking along the riverfront and visiting Eastern Market on the weekends to listen to karaoke at Bert’s. She also loves to travel; she has a long list of places and countries that she is longing to visit. Besides many new countries, she’d like to make it to Hawaii and Alaska in the next few years and revisit her host families in Germany.

Jennifer graduated from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, with a Bachelor of Arts in German and Anthropology and a minor in Women’s Studies.
