Jazmine Woodberry is a communications professional based in Phoenix, Ariz. Currently she traffics in nonprofit communications as the Associate Manager of Internal Communications at PetSmart Charities. Previously she was a technical writer and marketing liaison for an e-Learning company and before that an associate editor for a business magazine publisher, working on the company’s flagship publication as well as assisting with writing, editing, publication and graphic design, account management, and advertisement/editorial trafficking on other publications. As a writer, she’s also had work published by Thomson Reuters, The Chicago Tribune, The New York Times Co., Huffington Post, The Arizona Republic, the Arizona Daily Star, the Tucson Weekly and several other local southern Arizona papers as well as the award-winning student newspaper, the Arizona Daily Wildcat. She also in her free time does freelance work as a section editor for a start-up online health magazine named InHue, focused on women of color.
A magna cum laude graduate of the University of Arizona, Jazmine also taught journalism during her undergraduate career, mentoring hundreds of students in freshmen-level university courses.
In her free time, Jazmine gobbles up new books, music, and movies, cooks as much as she can and finds enough time to squeeze in night rides on her cherry red ’70s Schwinn Varsity. She’s even been known to bust out some karaoke on occasion. She’s also looking for a new pet to bring into her home, too — a welcome side effect of her job!
They said it: Jazmine Woodberry is the hardest working student reporter that I’ve ever met. Not only did she write 5 to 7 news stories per week, but she also maintained a full time student academic schedule, held a second job as a residence hall desk assistant, earned a 4.0 GPA, and spent her weekends as a test proctor. Jazmine always brought a positive, open attitude to the Arizona Daily Wildcat newsroom, and I truly feel blessed to have worked with her. Not only does she excel in professionalism, but she exudes warmth and enthusiasm at all times.
