Jessica Tramontana, APR


Senior Account Executive


Jessica brings more than 16 years of journalism, policy, legislative and political experience to Martin Waymire, using her strong communications skills developed as a reporter and advocate to advance policy initiatives. She’s an award-winning public practitioner who enjoys balancing the details clients need with creative and unique ideas on development and dissemination of messages. Jessica combines her experience in broadcast journalism with a broad network of media contacts and spearheads many of Martin Waymire’s video projects as an innovative and effective way to communicate with various audiences.

Jessica joins the legacy of journalists turned PR pros at Martin Waymire, having earned a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University’s James Madison College with degrees in journalism and social relations. As a former reporter, her career spans the state in television markets in Flint, Traverse City and Grand Rapids, working as a reporter and anchor. Coming to Lansing, Jessica has worked in the Michigan Legislature, including stints as press secretary/communications director within the Michigan House, senior communications adviser for the Michigan Senate and communications director for Progress Michigan.

A mother to two daughters and two furry “children,” Jessica and her family live in Dewitt. She and her husband met at Michigan State University and have followed a similar career trajectory, as former reporters who now both work in communications. Jessica loves animals, running, and will devour sushi when the opportunity presents itself. When she’s not working, you can find Jessica rooting for Michigan State University or Detroit sports teams. She would be lost without large steaming cup of well-brewed coffee and a good book.
