Jennifer Wilson is in her first year as the Director of Marketing and Promotions for Charleston Southern athletics, joining the staff in November of 2012.

She began her stint with the Flames as a graduate assistant before becoming an Assistant Director of Athletics Communications. While in Lynchburg, she was the primary media contact for softball, volleyball and swimming.
Wilson also has a strong marketing background, having worked in the promotions office for the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, a Triple-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies. She also spent time doing marketing and PR in the textile and real estate industries, and has assisted in event planning for several organizations in the Charleston area.
Wilson graduated with a B.A. in communications from Elon University in 2003, before obtaining her M.A. in management from Liberty in 2010. She and her husband, Mike, live in Charleston with Cooper, a beagle puppy, and cat, Nellie.
