Founder, Creative Director
Jeni Bukolt is a marketing and communications expert who has been connecting people to brands for over 15 years. As founder of Haven Creative, she drew on her diverse experience in video production, social media marketing, sales and business development to create a platform for companies to showcase their products, interact with their customers and build brand recognition.
Before launching Haven Creative, Jeni's career began in Los Angeles where she managed virtually all aspects of video production from booking field crews to overseeing post production. At the height of her career in Los Angeles, she held the title Director of Business Development for a multi-million dollar video equipment rental house. Some of her clients included The Dr. Phil Show and Entertainment Tonight.
Eager to further develop her career in marketing and communications, Jeni relocated to Phoenix, Arizona when an opportunity arose for her to become a product marketing manager for Gold Canyon, one of the largest direct sales candle companies in the nation. While working for Gold Canyon, Jeni supported multi-level marketing campaigns through video and social media communications reaching over 30,000 distributors.
Fueled by the passion to help fellow entrepreneurs build brand recognition paired with a timely relocation to the East Coast, Jeni started Haven Creative in the Fall of 2012. As Founder and Creative Director, Jeni oversees all aspects of design, marketing and communications.
Kristen grew up on Trading Spaces Kids and was convinced she would become an interior designer when she grew up. She even entered her freshman year at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC as an interior design major. After one textiles class, she knew she had made a mistake. It was the pacing, the time lapses, and the before and after graphics of home makeovers that captivated her. Starting sophomore year, she set out to learn everything she could about writing, filming, and editing videos.
On her quest, she interned with the Meredith College marketing department before working as a Production Intern at Myriad Media, a video production agency in Raleigh. The agency world is amazing, so Kristen is pretty stoked to be a part of the Haven Creative! Kristen graduated from Elon University in 2017 with her M.A. in Interactive Media.
HAVEN CREATIVE works with designers, web developers and video editors all over the country. If you are interested in freelancing for us, please submit your resume and any supporting design or communications work to thehavencreative @ gmail.com.
