Jackie Ritchie

Director, Creative Services

I re-write most of my lists (with checkboxes) every day simply so that they are prioritized, clean, easy to read and ready to be checked. Aside from the visual gratification of crossing something off a list, I do this because I thrive on knowing the status of projects at all times and always feeling organized. These “Type A” tendencies suit my position as creative services director well. My job involves ensuring that both our internal team and partners alike are prepared, informed and updated throughout any creative project and that all projects are timely, purposeful and within budget.

I came to WashU after five years as a senior account director for Creative Producers Group (CPG). Prior to that, I was an agency account executive in Los Angeles overseeing primarily print campaigns for many of the major film studios. I graduated from the University of Southern California with a major in communications and minor in advertising.

Outside of work, I spend the majority of my time chasing my two little boys around the world and playing rock paper scissors with my husband to see who gets to sleep in on the weekend.
