Groups/Organizations

Jennifer founded The San Antonio Podcasting Group in 2005. The San Antonio Podcasters were instrumental in the creation and success of the first Podcamp in the State of Texas: PodCamp San Antonio. This heralded the begining of the User Generated Conference movement in San Antonio.

In late October 2007, Jennifer created National Podcast Post Month (NaPodPoMo) in honor of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), National Blog Post Month (NaBloPoMo) and National Vlog Post Month (NaVloPoMo).  This ambitious project was created on October 30th and began on November 1st. The daily podcasts continued up until November 30th. When all was said and done, 50 podcasters had participated in the first-time event. 

Social Media Club San Antonio and Social Media Breakfast are the most recent groups in which Jennifer is involved. Bringing together the Social Media Community in San Antonio to put into practice the "If you get it, share it" mantra.

Events

Jennifer is the lead organizer for Podcamp San Antonio.  Which, with the help of a core group of co-organizers, held events in 2007, 2008 and 2009. After hearing about Startup Weekend, Jennifer decided that it sounded like a perfect fit for the emerging tech community in San Antonio. Once she found a couple of folks who agreed to co-organize the event, Startup Weekend San Antonio was born.  The next event Jennifer wanted to bring to the Alamo city was Barcamp so once again she reached out to the community and Barcamp San Antonio was launched. The latest event Jennifer added to her plate was TweetCamp which was held during the summer of 2009.
