Jeni Fjelstad

Jeni Fjelstad, hailing from the small town of Groton, SD, discovered a passion for writing during her junior year of high school, inspired by both her love for storytelling and real-life narratives. While pursuing a double major in journalism and French at Augustana University, Jeni dove headfirst into the world of journalism through her involvement with The Augustana Mirror, the university’s student newspaper, and an internship with Aberdeen Magazine and Aberdeen Weddings. Upon graduating, she worked for her alma mater in the marketing department, writing and designing both print and  website content. Jeni’s journey includes two stints with the Teaching Assistant Program in France (TAPIF), where she taught English to middle and high school students, led English clubs, and enjoyed cultural exchanges with people from around the globe.

At Matt Jensen Marketing, Jeni brings her vibrant energy to the team. Her first agency role allows her to use her passion for storytelling to create meaningful communication for clients. Jeni thrives on the challenge of wordsmithing and enjoys the collaborative environment at MJM. Outside of work, she is an avid runner, yogi, and singer and loves spending time with friends and family. Jeni has always been a dancer, but she hung up her pom-poms in 2022 to make space for her world travels, which now include 13 countries. Whether she’s reading a captivating book or exploring new regions, Jeni is always on the lookout for inspiration to fuel her writing endeavors.
