BizComm graduate Jackie Cooper (2017) has a lot to be smiling about recently. Earlier this year, she graduated with a master’s degree in Marketing from Kogod School of Business at American University. During her time in the business school, she worked as a freelance marketing consultant and created her own business. This week, she launched her business officially with a new website. She enjoys working with clients to help brand their businesses, just as she, herself, has worked to brand her own business. We are excited for Jackie as she takes on the world.
