About Jenna Cornick

Hi! I’m Jenna Cornick, life enthusiast.

Advertising and PR are my jam, and I am currently on a mission to improve my Spanish.

I firmly believe that travel is one of the best ways to learn, and am not one to turn down cheap plane tickets. I seek out connection with people holding a different world view to challenge me to think differently.

Photography is also a passion of mine. I’d love to take your picture. Family photos? Senior photos? Engagement photos? Professional headshots? Let’s connect.

Currently, I am studying public relations, advertising, and Spanish at Drake University.

What’s next?

Currently I am pursuing opportunities working for a public relations, marketing, or advertising agency. I love the agility of agencies, how they develop so much content, for a wide varieties of clients and audiences, in a short amount of time, maintaining such a high quality of work. Read about my experience working at Blink, a small marketing agency in the summer of 2017.

In moments of free time, I love photography, music, staying active, and exploring new places.

At the end of 2016, I started shooting with my first DSLR camera, a Canon Rebel T6. Immediately after, I went to study abroad in Málaga, Spain. The photo opportunities were endless, and the beautiful landscapes and new faces gave me a the perfect excuse to get started practicing photography. This was a heavily trial-and-error based project, but thanks to some lessons from a friend of mine from high school, I set off with the basics of the manual setting on my camera and took off from there!

Music is a passion of mine. When I was young, I played piano, was a percussionist in my school band, and sang in choir. Nowadays, I am not actively creating music, but I take pride in my curated playlists on Spotify, and love to attend concerts of some of my favorite artists. Occasionally some of my favorite artists swing through the Midwest. I watched Sylvan Esso perform at the Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines and Saint Motel perform at the Iowa Memorial Union in Iowa City. You can also catch me on the campus radio station, 94.1 The Dog. Tune in at 9 p.m. on Sunday evenings.
