Profile – Kristin Hansel

Kristin Hansel

Account Director

After focusing early in her career on managing the social media platforms for local restaurants, Kristin decided to further embrace her love and appreciation for the culinary industry by broadening her horizons and expanding into PR, a career move that has worked out very well for her.  At JS2, Kristin is responsible for developing and implementing her clients’ media relations and social media strategies.

Kristin began her career doing social media for Taste of Pace (a catering company based out of DTLA), and the utility industry with San Diego Gas & Electric.  She came to JS2 with a nicely honed understanding of how to promote a brand through various channels and has since developed a formidable set of PR skills.

Kristin holds a B.A. of Communications and Sociology from UCSB.  In her off hours she can be found playing with her dog Darla, planning the next recipe she will cook, or trying to make it to Santa Monica for the Saturday farmers market.
