HOOPS, CONTENT, MARKETING, & ME.
What's up everyone! I'm Jaki. As soon as I began playing competitive basketball in 5th grade, I've been known as a 'google search' for scouting reports. Try me! Though officially tabbed with the nickname by my teammates at Binghamton University, my life consisted of sleepless nights throughout high school memorizing then-young blogs like Hoopgurlz.com and MaxPreps. Once it came time to think off the court, I immediately began funneling this knowledge into content generation at every opportunity I sought out. First, as Assistant Sports Editor at The BU Pipe Dream, and a marketing intern with a minor league baseball club. Once I graduated in 2011, I dove head first into sports television production with IMG Media. This eventually paved the way for a more niche approach to my work as I grew my efforts deeper into the basketball community. In 2012, I joined Krossover and ran content as community manager for the majority of my stay, and further as content marketer and producer for FloHoops/FloSports.
Outside of work, ball is still life and I extremely enjoy maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle in the world’s biggest playground. I play basketball year-round throughout New York City (NY Urban League, Jim Couch’s Uptown Challenge, West 4th St.), practice yoga, and explore Brooklyn’s beauty by foot - whether running or walking!

My content experience varies from live event marketing, content marketing for b2b, and content marketing for b2c. While at sports-giant IMG Worldwide's Media Department, I built my base through the production of primetime sporting events and reality television. Once jumping back into the hoops world with Krossover, I applied these production skills to content marketing and am able to provide full-stack content marketing services - from production to paid media.
