“So a big professional update from me, one that is exciting, yet bittersweet, to write”, states Jennifer Nycz-Conner on Facebook, “After 13 wonderful years at the Washington Business Journal, I am taking a new gig. I’ll be traveling down the road to Hilton, based at their Tysons headquarters, where I’ll be taking on the role of Director, Brand Communications, Portfolio. The job will focus on finding stories to tell from across Hilton’s 14 brands, including its loyalty program.”

In her final column in WBJ, she wrote:

“When I first walked through the WBJ’s doors in 2005, I was terrified that I would fall flat on my face. I had never worked in a newsroom before.

“Since that time, this place has given me so many gifts, more than I could have ever asked for or deserved.

“The gift of learning. Of testing myself. Of growing. Of crying. Of laughing. Of trying new things. Of surprising myself. Of triumphs. Of failures. Of writing. Of creating. Of becoming a parent (times three). Of learning how to make it all work (still working on that).

“And especially of working with the smartest, most talented and simply best damn group of people you’ll ever find.”

Capitol Communicator featured her in 2015 in an Up Close and Personal profile and you can read that profile here.
