Talent

Our team is led by strategic communications veteran Jackie Shelton, APR, who, after 30 years, still has a hard time focusing on one particular aspect, so she has stopped trying.

A graduate of the University of Nevada, she has worked in all facets of communications from running three advertising agencies (two of her own) to publishing two of the Northern Nevada region’s premier publications, RLife and Family Pulse.

For the past few years, she has also been helping communicate the importance of renewable energy for her family’s business, Rattler Energy, which can supply businesses with the Total Flow Generator, a machine that converts waste energy into fuel-free green energy.

From 2008 to 2012, she served as a marketing & communications manager for TrueBlue, Inc., a national, publicly traded blue-collar staffing company. While overseeing the external and internal marketing for CLP Resources, Inc. and the company’s skilled trades and industrial divisions, she helped the company navigate the recession and target different sectors, including renewable energy, so the company can continue to thrive and prosper.

In 2012, Jackie started Jax Communications, LLC, a full-service marketing/communications firm made up of amazingly talented professionals who are all successful in their own right. The fact that we’re all successfully self-employed demonstrates our willingness to think bigger and differently and to do whatever it takes to make our clients successful. When we come together and direct our energy toward one goal, the results speak for themselves.

Jackie earned her accreditation in public relations (APR) in 2016 and served on the board of the Public Relations Society of America Sierra Nevada chapter for three years. She currently serves on the NCET board and volunteers for numerous causes including What Can I Do, a semi-regular non-profit mixer she founded. She has served on the national board of the American Advertising Federation, as well as numerous local/regional non-profit and professional organizations, including the Nevada Recycling Coalition and the Unnamed Writers’ Group.
