LEADERSHIP TEAM

Jess Ostroff

Jess Ostroff

CEO & Director of Calm

Jess conceived the idea of Don’t Panic Mgmt based on a fortune cookie (and the Coldplay song of course). With the “don’t panic” mantra in mind, she has found that there is nothing too big or strong for her to conquer. Jess is known for making photogenic recipes (and then Instagramming them) and her hilarious dance to the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ song, “Give It Away”. She firmly believes in the Oxford Comma and has a passion for finding efficient ways to get things done. Jess's first book, Panic Proof: How the Right Virtual Assistant Can Save Your Sanity and Grow Your Business is available now: panicproofbook.com
Current location:New Canaan, CT
Go-to Karaoke song: “Hand in My Pocket” by Alanis Morissette
Favorite kind of cheese: Aged Goat Gouda
Beverage of choice: Champagne
Super power: Delivering miracles, especially when all hope is lost.
Jenn Hines

Jenn Hines

Chief Client Officer

Jenn thrives on funky design tasks and Googling even the strangest queries (seriously, you should see her search history). Researching, scheduling, blogging, and hacking photoshop are some of her many specialties. She lives for ambitious deadlines and her organizational skills are unmatched. Usually, you can find Jenn attempting to balance work and life with her husband & two adorable kiddos, while still trying to fit in a little “me-time”. Since there are hardly enough hours in the day, that usually means she’s sitting on the couch at midnight with a glass of Moscato, catching up on Scandal episodes.
Current location: Lancaster, CA
Go-to Karaoke song: “Strawberry Wine” by Deana Carter
Favorite kind of cheese: Asiago
Beverage of choice: Mimosas, Mojitos, Moscato, Moscow Mules and basically any drink beginning with the letter M except Margaritas
Super power: The ultimate Google-r and all around encyclopedia. Need to know how to fold a fitted sheet? There’s a YouTube video for that.
