Meet the Team: Jessica Jalowiec
Meet Jessica: our Oakland-born dog mom and ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF MARKETING with a passion for all things astrology and a knack for creating the perfect hashtag. Get to know Jess!
WHAT IS YOUR ROLE HERE AT INGRID & ISABEL? HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WORKING AT IAI?
My role at the company is to run the Marketing Department! In a nutshell: brand + content police(woman), resident brainstormer, dot-connector, pun enthusiast. I started at I&I last November, so it’s been about 6 months.
LET'S DO AN ICE BREAKER!
WHICH CARTOON CHARACTER WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO SWITCH LIVES WITH AND WHY?
Rafiki from the Lion King. He’s so enlightened! (but maybe only for a day?)
WHAT ARE SOME THINGS AS AN ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR THAT YOU THINK ABOUT EVERYDAY? Brand consistency, the next big campaign idea, how to ensure we are being REAL when we talk to mom.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE PROJECT SO FAR AT INGRID & ISABEL?
Mama’s Who Make it Happen! It was our first branded company event, and it turned out so beautifully thanks to all that were involved.
IF YOU WEREN'T WORKING IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY,
IN ANOTHER LIFE WHAT CAREER PATH WOULD YOU HAVE CHOSEN?
Doula, Yoga Instructor, or holistic nutritionist. Maybe all three?
WE HEARD YOU'RE A CLEAN-EATING ENTHUSIAST — WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR GO-TO SNACKS AT THE MOMENT?
OMG- coconut butter is life changing (I eat it in smoothies, on toast, or by itself). I’m LOVING baked sweet potato fries a la “Lee From America” (check out her blog). Nutritional yeast on everything.
WHERE DO YOU SEE THE FASHION INDUSTRY HEADING IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS?
I see the fashion industry getting more real and focusing on the variety in size and shape of women’s bodies. Relating to her on a level that isn’t just a fake post in an IG grid. I see brands becoming altruistic and really helping people on a large scale (in case you didn’t know, Im an eternal optimist!)
WHAT'S YOUR PERSONAL MANTRA?
Empowered women empower women.
WHAT CAN WE FIND YOU DOING ON THE WEEKENDS?
Hiking with my dog, meal prepping, dinner parties with friends, exploring Oakland, spending time with family, vintage thrifting, yoga.
