Wellington, FL - December 30, 2009 - Phelps Media Group, Inc. International, an equestrian public relations company in Wellington, FL, is pleased to announced that Jessica Nemzoff of New Hope, PA, will join the PMG team as an account executive.
Mason Phelps, President of Phelps Media Group, said, “As a University of Miami graduate with extensive experience in the equestrian industry, Jessica will provide a fresh, knowledgeable outlook for our clients, and we are thrilled to have her aboard.”
Beginning her riding career at the age of six, Nemzoff has competed on the “AA” circuit as both a junior and an amateur. Riding with Scott Stewart and Ken Berkley of Rivers Edge for the vast majority of the last ten years, she has added multiple victories and awards at the Winter Equestrian Festival to her list of equestrian accomplishments.
Prior to her time at Rivers Edge, Nemzoff rode with Sharyn Cole and Martha Sifton, and spent her pony days riding at Brownland Farm. Brownland provided Nemzoff with an invaluable riding foundation, one that she attributes to being able to ride numerous different horses. She recalled, “There was a field of mares, and a field of geldings. You never knew exactly what you were getting on, but that was the fun of it-it’s what taught us how to ride.”
Outside of her time at the horse shows, she has also spent time galloping Thoroughbreds at the racetrack. “I had ridden and shown hunters and jumpers my entire life, and thought the racehorses would be an exciting change,” Nemzoff explained. Thus, she couldn’t resist when the opportunity came to gallop racehorses with Michael Matz, Olympic Gold Medalist and trainer of Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro.
In addition to riding, education has also taken a top spot on Nemzoff’s priority list. She graduated cum laude from the University of Miami, with a Bachelors of Business Administration in Finance. Beyond her knowledge of finance exists a wealth of talent in both writing and photography. While she enjoys finance, Nemzoff says her “true passion has always been the horses,” adding that “the Account Executive position is a dream come true as it allows me to draw on my equestrian knowledge as well as my experience in writing and photography.”
Phelps looks forward to introducing Nemzoff to Phelps Media Group. As the winter season gears up, Nemzoff will be taking on a number of interesting projects, all of which he says “are right up her alley.”
