I regularly complete writing and web projects for non-profits, small businesses, corporations and athletes. I also offer consulting services relating to marketing, social media, and book projects.
Sports Writing & Publicity
Since 2005, I’ve enjoyed covering professional sports. Somewhere along the way, I added publicity gigs to the mix. I’ve been blessed to meet inspiring people from all walks of life, whether a young college athlete with big dreams, an NFL MVP, X-Games champ, MMA beast, or Gold Medalist. Listening to someone share their story by phone, standing in the fog on a beach, on a humid sideline, or at spring training… my journey as a writer has been fascinating. I think I’ve covered just about every sport! My alumni magazine published a feature on my career: The Techsan>>>

My Dad Is Awesome
I’m the daughter of NFL offensive lineman Greg Sampson (Houston Oilers, ’72-’79), a Godly man of strength, character and honor. He was the 6th pick overall in the 1972 NFL Draft and blocked for some guy named Earl.
Have you written any books to this point? Would like to talk about the possibility of you ghost writing for athletes. Please contact.
Hey Jenna, I’m enjoying your blog. I met you when you came to basketball practices with your mom.
Hi Sue, thank you! And…I hope basketball is going well! I miss all the ladies!
Jenna! I can’t believe I found you on here. I worked out all your kinks at Oceans! It looks like you are doing great! Would love to hear from you.
Jenna, it was a pleasure talking with you on the plane ride to vegas. I remember your dad playing for the oilers. I played OT at rutgers univ in nj in 69 before an illness ended my playing football. I was the guy in the aisle seat. I wish you much success in your career. Good luck in your career and God speed. If you are ever in the Phila area please do not hesitate to contact us.
Hi Bob, good to hear from you! I’m glad I had the chance to sit with two sports junkies, especially one from the same era of college ball as my dad. I appreciate the well wishes and will definitely send you guys an email if I come to Philly for a story.
Hello Jenna! I’m a fellow North Coaster and I saw you at Barnes n Noble; I just couldn’t place how I knew you and indeed it was summer night volleyball in Carlsbad!
Hi Chelsea, Good memory! Yes, summer volleyball was a lot of fun…I’d never played before, and really enjoyed meeting everyone. Hope you’re doing well and have a good week!
I knew your dad in junior high school and right now I’m sitting with 2 guys he went to high school with. Steve Bozaan and Mark Elgin. We were all wondering what ever happened to him. Please let us know. Thanks
Hi! He’s just enjoying working at our family business down here near San Diego and being a cool grandpa. There should be more info on his football career online somewhere…maybe wikipedia. He wants to know if Mark can still ball it up on the court! Thanks and take care.
Very impressive Jenna.
If Greg would like Mark’s contact information, let me know in a private email. thanks so much.
During baseball season 1963, your father was a pitcher for the Long Beach Plaza Little League Majors Team, the Braves. He was twelve years old. I was a ten year old pitcher/3rd baseman for the Wildcats teammate. I batted against your father one time. He was big for his age and threw very hard! Very hard! I followed his football career from Millikan High School, to Stanford and to the Oilers. Your photograph reminds me of how he looked back then! Peace and good wishes!
What a nice note to read! I love hearing stories about his Little League days. He was always disappointed he threw his arm out back then and didn’t continue pitching. He passed his love for baseball on to us kids, and taught us all about the sluggers back then…Maris, Mantle, Musial…I still love going to the ballpark with my dad and playing catch. Although, yes, clearly God created him to play on the gridiron:-) Cheers!
