“Having experience behind the camera and on set helps me understand what clients want, need and expect. I know how important accountability, good communication skills, and creative resourcefulness are in this industry and those are the work ethics I live by.”
Locally born and raised, Jennifer Ackerson is the newest face, and voice, of The Mary Collins Agency staff.
She attended the University of North Texas and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Radio, Television and Film. After college, Jennifer got her first production job with a film crew as a Production Assistant, and helped with the daily duties on and off set. Later, she worked as a PA and Associate Producer for a local studio, creating industrial videos for clients like Martha Stewart Living and Casual Male. Having experience behind the camera and on set is a unifying asset she brings to her relationship with the talent at Mary Collins. “Accountability” and “communication” are her favorite words and work ethics to live by, as well as “creativity with a touch of resourcefulness.” She most enjoys seeing the performers’ finished spots, films, and TV shows, and adding their media to the Agency’s website.
When not answering and directing calls and swimming in a sea of emails including those from aspiring talent, Jennifer likes to go to concerts, support local music, visit museums, craft, run 5ks and play outside in the sunshine with her friends. Jennifer lives in Rockwall with her big Italian family, and their awesome puppy, Bear.
