Jacqueline Koch


We now live in the realm of short attention span theater.  Jacqueline has communications expertise which helps clients find center stage. Understanding the human desire for connection, she is a firm believer in the power of storytelling. She draws on her expertise in journalism, writing and visual communications to effectively engage with broad audiences. Where many see an insatiable demand, Jacqueline sees opportunity in the growing public appetite for fresh, original and credible content. To feed the beast, she is resourceful in finding novel ways to message across platforms, media formats and communities. Jacqueline readily spots early opportunities and leverages them. She connects media, thought leaders and events to ignite larger discussions around a client’s ideas, product or issue. Delving into diverse assignments—from global health and disruptive innovation to energy and environmental security—Jacqueline has worked for a variety of national and international clients, such as American Red Cross, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and J/P Haitian Relief Organization.
