With a vast background in many aspects of the wine and food industry and a desire to tell clients’ stories in an exciting and inventive way, Account Manager Jennifer Bravo understands how to capture audiences in the modern world. A diversity of real-world experiences has helped develop Bravo’s unique, nuanced point of view as a marketing professional. Joining Solterra Strategies in 2015, she hit the ground running.

“I draw from these rich experiences in order to tell clients stories with compelling clarity. I am thrilled to add a broad outlook to our core focuses: brand strategy, brand development, public relations, and marketing,” Bravo said. “With my project management, social media and events planning history, I work to keep Solterra moving forward, to further efficiency, and to generate fresh ideas.”

As Office Manager for Visit San Luis Obispo County, Bravo worked to enhance tourism and garner exponential media buzz for the Central Coast destination. Assisting in the execution of countywide events, including the award-winning Sunset SAVOR the Central Coast, she has proven herself to be a detail-oriented planner with big-picture vision. “Growing up on the Central Coast and watching the area grow, mature and thrive has been so incredible,” the marketing professional said of her local roots.

As Assistant Tasting Room Manager at the renowned Tablas Creek Winery, Bravo wore a myriad of hats. From handling daily operations and getting her hands dirty in the vineyard to overseeing the opening of the winery’s new, expansive tasting room, leading new-branding efforts, promoting biodynamic systems, managing social media and executing special events, Bravo has soaked in a valuable assortment of experience. The Solterra team member has also lent her skills to Paso’s award-winning Artisan restaurant, where she received a fruitful entryway into the colorful world of food and wine marketing. Bravo helped promote the dining destination’s high-end brand proving tangible social media results. Managing the nonprofit wine shop Paso Wine Centre further solidified strong relationships within the California wine trade and beyond.

In the end, what matters most to Bravo is attaining hard-won results for her clients. This is a reward within itself. “I am a sociable, friendly people-person.” Bravo said. “ Forging connections is a blast, it’s all about building and cultivating relationships in this industry, and I love that.”

Jennifer Bravo lives in Templeton with her beloved children, 13 and 10. She has contributed to the Pairings in Paso blog, serves on the Paso Robles ARTSFEST committee and is active in various community events and local charities. When she isn’t tweeting about all of the Central Coast’s accolades, you can find her checking out the local farmer’s market, at the beach or cooking an exciting, new recipe for her family.

An avid outdoorswoman, Bravo loves hunting, fishing, and generally soaking up the sunshine.
