Jessica O. Otitigbe is a uniquely talented and versatile communications leader, professor, and consultant with over 25 years of experience in the areas of higher education, community relations, corporate communications, public relations, media project management, and media event planning.
As the founder and business storytelling strategist for Creative Collaborations, LLC, her areas of focus include providing strategic communication and program development consulting solutions for not-for-profit organizations, start-ups, and small businesses.
Beyond a focus on communications, Jessica is also passionate about developing meaningful collaborations with individuals and other organizations to create a series of sustainable community engagement programs that have connections to women, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, health/wellness and STEAM.
When she isn’t writing, teaching, consulting, creating strategies, or telling stories, Jessica loves nurturing her most important accomplishment — being a present parent to her daughter, who was the first African-American valedictorian at Albany High School. Her daughter is now a rising junior at Harvard, still exploring options although she would like a career specializing in robot-assisted procedures in pediatric neurosurgery.
