About Jenny Lynn

Jenny Lynn Anderson's Signature

I’m an award-winning writer with over 30 years of strategic public relations, marketing and advertising experience. If your branding and messaging needs to be spot-on, I’m your go-to pro who can wordsmith it and drive potential customers to take action. My company, Buzz Marketing, specializes in the hospitality, trade, and tourism industry as well as healthcare and wellness.

I thrive in the creative realm and like to dream up out-of-the-box ideas. Along with using my imagination, however; I approach projects as a workhorse with a no-nonsense, get-it-done spirit. 

In 2011, I became an author and I started travel blogging in 2022.  

Hi! I’m Jenny Lynn Anderson.

I’m a public relations and marketing expert with over three decades of experience. My company, Buzz Marketing, is located in Statesboro Georgia. I’m an award-winning writer and communications expert, producing creative marketing and public relations solutions to local, regional, and national organizations. 

I’m an active member of my community in Bulloch County. I’m a graduate of Georgia Southern’s Communication Arts Department, where I majored in public relations. One of the high points of my life has been serving my alma mater, where I’ve held roles as a PRSSA professional adviser, adjunct professor, and mentor. 

I’ve helped set fundraising records for Georgia Southern, becoming the first chair woman in the history of Georgia Southern to raise $1.4 million for the annual “A Day for Southern” event.

My education brought me everything. One of the accomplishments I’m most proud of is the Jenny Lynn Anderson Communication Arts Scholarship. I’ve even had the opportunity to work for Georgia Southern in its Communications and Marketing Department! While I’m no longer meeting friends and fellow colleagues out in the quad, I’m proud of the contributions I’ve made to my alma mater and my community.
