Kim Jackson

Kim Jackson has more than 20 years of experience in marketing, communications, journalism and content strategy. She has been writing and editing since she could pick up a No. 2 pencil. Some of the earliest “assignments” she tackled included serving as “Dear Abby” for her fifth-grade class newsletter; co-editor of her high school newspaper; and as city hall beat reporter/night editor for the former daily newspaper, The Pasadena Citizen. From there, she served as editor for a weekly newspaper that had multiple, feature-filled sections prior to taking a job with The Houston Chronicle, where she wrote more than 1,000 articles on events and issues important to residents and business owners in Harris and Montgomery counties.

Before launching her career in journalism, Kim worked in marketing, public relations and publishing in Houston and Hong Kong. While living in Hong Kong, she wrote, edited and marketed a full-color magazine for a prominent American business and social networking organization, and worked as a freelance writer and editor for several Hong Kong publishing companies and magazines.

Most recently, she worked as a public information officer for a government agency involved in emergency management communications; and in community/governmental relations, media relations, writing and editing, social media strategy and implementation, and project communications.

She moves easily between different styles of writing, including feature and lifestyle pieces, vlogs and blogs, social media posts, and good, old-fashioned man/woman-on-the-street interviews.
