From the beautiful island of Oahu, Jennifer was raised in a rich melting pot of cultures. She grew up on Hickam/Pearl Harbor Military Base, where she worked and volunteered with the American Red Cross. While completing her last year of college at Hawaii Pacific University, she and the team conducted community assessment needs of the military families that allowed the team to provide community outreach, research, and service to the families of Schofield Barracks military base.
Through her work she received top honors of resilience from the command of Schofield Barracks and Hawaii Pacific University. She worked on various early virtual platforms during college, and it was during that time she found she had a passion for community service and digital community development and marketing.
When Jennifer isn’t attending a webinar or training, she enjoys a simple board game of Catan or Ticket to Ride with her family.

Helping to PAVe THE WAY FOR FUTURE FULL-STACK DIGITAL MARKETING PROFESSIONALS
Jennifer Bagwell has combined her years of love for digital marketing with her Full-Stack certification. This new field, which is growing rapidly is helping to bridge the digital marketing gap.
Jennifer has always been a passionate community service volunteer, from “building bridges” cultural diversity community events to helping coordinate new educational community enrichment project to districts of over 18,000 students. She extends her giving to nonprofit organizations by providing free digital social media profile frame design, which have over 25 million impressions and uses.
Optimist Day was established by Optimist International back in 2013. As Director of Digital Marketing and Media with Optimist International, Jennifer campaigned and networked to bring Optimist Day to the public. Since the adoption of the day as a National Day, It has since been added to multiple digital and print calendars to be celebrated by hundreds of thousands worldwide each year.
Working with four of the largest community service organizations, Jennifer was a key team member of the project. With team members from each organization, together they launched the new Celebrate Community, which was one of the largest collaborative community service global initiatives.
Completed Certification & Webinar Training
While Jennifer has obtained many certifications over the years, she believes in establishing her own CEU – “It is always good to refresh your knowledge and gain new skills. If you are not pushing yourself and taking one marketing training session a year, you will fall behind and that is a disservice to your profession.”
