Scholarship Foundation Welcomes Communications Pro Jennifer St. James.

Jennifer St. James

The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara is pleased to welcome Jennifer St. James as its director of marketing and communications.

“The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara is excited to add communications expertise to the organization,” said Candace Winkler, president and CEO of the Scholarship Foundation. “This will enable us to better tell our stories of success and to highlight the students’ needs as well as the diverse opportunities for community involvement.”

St. James brings to the foundation 18 years of marketing experience in both California and the United Kingdom, and specializes in brand journalism and relationship building through content and social media.

For the past nine years, St. James has owned and operated her own marketing and communications company, Either/Or Media, working for small- and medium-sized businesses in Orange and Santa Barbara counties as well as with Epson America in Long Beach, Calif.

During her time in London, St. James worked for nonprofit organizations such as The Oddfellows and St. John Ambulance, and for-profit companies including the Bank of Scotland, DHL UK, the Wentworth Club and the Financial Times. 

“I’m honored to have been selected for this position,” said St. James. “I’m looking forward to putting my experience to work for the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, and I feel fortunate to join an organization so dedicated to helping the people in our community succeed.”

St. James earned a bachelor’s degree in literature from the College of Creative Studies at UC Santa Barbara, and a master’s in literature, culture and modernism from the University of London, Queen Mary and Westfield.

She has been a mentor for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, and currently serves on the board of All For Animals, a local nonprofit supporting humane education and literacy programs for children reading to therapy dogs.

Raissa Smorol is the director of development at the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
