Jennifer Miller, along with Jennifer Lester, founded Philosophy Communication in the Spring of 2001. Jen wanted to create a firm that not only produced amazing work for clients, but also valued its people and everything that makes them who they are. Jen’s staff mantra is, “If I’m going to spend most of my day with a group of people, I’d better like them.” She has led efforts to create a work environment that embraces creativity in every form, from problem-solving and strategic thinking, to effective copy-writing, and client campaign themes. She has led account teams and provided strategic oversight for some of the firm’s most notable food and agriculture clients, including Colorado Proud, the Colorado Department of Agriculture, Natural Grocers, T.G.I. Friday’s, Smashburger, Quiznos and Caribou Coffee. Her work with Denver Public School’s Denver Teacher Residency program earned Philosophy the highest marks at several industry award shows. Clients, co-workers and peers alike recognize and seek out Jen for her strategic approach to communication programs big and small.
Prior to starting Philosophy, Jen was director of public relations for eCollege and director of client services for a local agency, serving businesses from the Fortune 500 to Internet startups. She is a long-time board member of HomeAid Colorado, a non-profit that builds homes and shelters for the state’s vulnerable homeless population. A Midwesterner born and raised, she earned her bachelor’s of science degree in journalism with an emphasis in business communication from the University of Kansas. She transplanted to Colorado more than 20 years ago and has called it home ever since. When she’s not strategizing at Philosophy, she’s strategizing at home, perusing cooking magazines, websites and blogs for her next culinary creation. Or you can find her sorting and building Legos with her two young boys, digging in the dirt in her backyard garden or searching for powder stashes at one of Colorado’s ski resorts.
