MEET THE PUBLISHERS
RITA JONES (right in photo)–Publisher
Rita started her professional career in radio at WILY-AM and WRXX-FM in Centralia, Illinois, working in the news and programming departments. After 7 years, she left the airwaves of radio for the microwaves of cable TV. As Regional Marketing Director for Omni Cable TV, Rita was responsible for marketing and public relations in 13 cable systems with 19 municipal franchises in Illinois. In 1986 she left the cold winters of Illinois to make her home on St. Thomas, where shortly after her arrival she became General Manager of International Voyager Media, Inc., a company which produced tourist publications throughout the Caribbean working with both the hotel and cruise line industries. She was later named Publisher by the new owners, Abarta Media. In 2002, together with Jennifer Sibilly, they formed Media Marketing, Inc., where they currently publish PLACES TO EXPLORE, the official publication of the U.S. Virgin Islands Hotel & Tourism Association, PLACES TO EAT MAPS, and the MARINE GUIDE for the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Born and raised on St. Thomas, Jennifer graduated from Sts. Peter and Paul School and continued her education at Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida. Upon returning home, Jennifer began working with the family owned business, Bar Enterprises, d/b/a Penny’s Drug and Liquor Store which was located at the Virgin Isle Hotel until the hotel and stores were destroyed by Hurricane Hugo in 1989. Shortly thereafter, she joined the staff of International Voyager Media, Inc. where she was an account executive for both print media and cruise ship promotions. After obtaining 13 years of publishing and marketing experience, Jennifer joined her co-worker, Rita Jones, and founded Media Marketing, Inc., which is a leader in the publishing of tourism publications in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
MEET THE ST. CROIX SALES ASSOCIATE
TERI GIZZI Sales-St. Croix
Teri left the cold, snowy Capital District of New York where she was a top producing manager for Radio Shack in September of 1993 for the warmth of sunny St. Croix.
Once on St. Croix, she managed Marianne’s Clothing before becoming a Regional Manager for King’s Alley Jewelers. This position kept her busy with 5 stores in the islands plus 5 more stateside. Looking for new adventures, she began working for The Tradewinds Shop as their Wholesale and Marketing Director. With Tradewinds she often traveled stateside for various trade shows and events. Eventually she needed to get back to the states and telecommuted from Tampa, FL for Tradewinds. Then the winds blew her back to the islands in 2012 where she was a manager for Cardow on St. Thomas.
The love of St. Croix never left Teri and in January 2014 she once again found herself “home”. When not working, she and her husband enjoy the simple island life.
Teri now looks forward to working for MMI and expanding the St. Croix market so everyone can see the true beauty of the islands.
