Meet the EDD: Jennifer Reginald

Posted by: Economic Development Team on Wednesday, February 15, 2017

In our blog series, “Meet the EDD,” we regularly profile a member of our team. Through our interviews, we hope you get to know the hardworking members of our staff that are dedicated to the economic vitality of Charles County.

Jennifer Reginald, marketing coordinator, joined the EDD in 2015. She helps “tell the story” of growth and economic development in Charles County, playing a role in nearly every EDD project and coordinating the department’s marketing efforts. In her role, Jennifer is responsible for the EDD’s monthly e-newsletter, social media, web updates, print collateral, advertising, as well as drafting press releases.

Charles County Economic Development Department (EDD): What’s your favorite thing about working for the EDD?
Jennifer Reginald (JR):
I like being part of an effort to improve the county where I live and doing that with supportive, talented colleagues.

EDD: What’s been your favorite project that you’ve worked on since joining the EDD?
I enjoyed our Charles County Map Pen campaign. We had the Map Pen designed to help explain our County’s location to outsiders and we distributed it through local businesses and contacts. It was fun to see the excitement around the pen and receive photos of people this summer taking the pen on vacations all over the world.
EDD: What’s your favorite spot to spend time in Charles County?
We (my husband, two boys, and I) live only two miles from the Potomac River and we like to go to a launching dock at the end of our road where we can have a picnic along the water and see George Washington’s Mount Vernon on the other side.
EDD: What technology do you love to hate?

JR: I used to hate Twitter and viewed it as a waste of time, but learned to like it after having to live tweet a recent EDD Fall Meeting. It’s a great way to connect with the community and business leaders who use it.

EDD: What is an interesting fact about you that most people may not know?
JR: I grew up in rural Indiana and met my husband, a native of Sri Lanka, online. He was living in Greenbelt, MD, and we bought a house in Charles County because of the lower cost of living.

EDD: Describe your ideal weekend.
JR: Sleeping in—something I rarely do.
