Jessi McNamara

My pack consists of:

My 18-year-old daughter, Jasmine; my three-year-old daughter Ava; and my two adorable pit bulls Zeff and Luna.

My role with EC is:

I run the day-to-day operations of EC, focussing on providing outreach, communication, education and resources to our wide-spread pit bull network. I am the director of marketing and design. I am a liaison between the rescues, fosters and local shelters. And my favorite role with our rescue is my dedication to providing a safe and loving foster home for pit bulls in need.

My paid gig is:

I am a Senior Art Director for Nestle Purina Checkmark Communications.

My strengths are:

Mispronouncing the English language and misusing idioms (and yes, English is my first and only language), Noticing and obsessing over ridiculously small details that probably only matter to me.

My weaknesses are:

Skinny vanilla lattes with no foam at 130 degrees, California, cilantro, dill, black and white pit bulls, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, 2 Pac and The Natural Born Killers.

If I had any free time I would:

Soak up the sun, drive to Big Sur, play with the dogs, laugh with my 2-year-old and take as many pictures as possible of everything I experience.
