Jen Edds is a musician, and HBIC (Head Broad in Charge) at The Brassy Broadcasting Company. She believes that our voices are the most undervalued assets in our businesses, and an often overlooked superpower. Jen serves a diverse client base that includes coaches, healers, and other do-gooders. She is on a mission to get them in the ears, heads, and hearts of their audiences by helping them incorporate podcasts and other audio content into their platforms.
The common thread through her work, in both podcasting and music, is the desire to help others share their stories and voices. In 2012, she quietly walked away from her comfort zone and a steady paycheck to live her passion and start The Brassy Broadcasting Co.
