Dottie is a member of our Public Relations team, supporting JS clients including Chick-fil-A, Cox, Southwire, and the East Lake Foundation. Her roles consist of issues management, public relations, and media relations.
She joined JS in January of 2022 after starting her career working in DC for a Member of Congress. Dottie supported the press team by developing communication strategies to spotlight the Congresswoman, ran all social media platforms, created digital content and served as her speechwriter.
Dottie earned a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations and Communications from the University of Georgia’s Grady College. One of the highlights of her PR track was living in Austria for six weeks studying International Communications.
In between starting at JS and working as a Press Assistant, Dottie also started her own freelance digital design business — DH Designs. She creates logos, graphics, and websites for small businesses.
Dottie is a native of Newnan, Georgia, just south of Atlanta. Away from work, she enjoys hanging out with her two siblings, working on her design business, going to work out classes, and cheering on the Dawgs. Today she lives in Smyrna, where she quite often finds herself at Truist Park cheering on the Braves.
