Annette Schulte provides marketing and communications strategy for the Jacobson Institute. She has worked in communications for nearly 25 years, including 20 years as an editor and content manager with the Cedar Rapids Gazette newspaper. While there, she spent a year in an R&D role, exploring the intersection of social media and news, and launched the company’s experimental education project, which explored and advocated for K-12 innovation. She organized Eastern Iowa’s first IgniteEducation event to showcase teachers’ innovative efforts. Ms. Schulte wrapped up her news career as Managing Editor, the Gazette's first woman in that role. Ready for innovation in her own life, she then went to work as Marketing Director for a local civil engineering firm. She has been with the Jacobson Institute since 2016.
