AARP Florida announced Wednesday that it is bringing on Jamie Champion Mongiovi as its new communications manager.
Mongiovi comes to AARP Florida from the Office of Financial Regulation, where she has served as communications director since 2014. She previously held positions at Core Message, a leading public relations firm in Tallahassee and at the Florida Department of Education, where she rose through the ranks to become an agency spokesperson.
“Jamie brings formidable talents as a communications strategist to our team, and we are delighted to welcome her to the new role,” said AARP Florida state director Jeff Johnson said. “Just as important, her own experiences as a family caregiver prepare her to equip and fight for our members on some of the most important opportunities and challenges they face.”
Mongiovi is a graduate of Florida State University, where she earned an undergraduate degree in international affairs with a concentration in political science. She lives in Tallahassee with her husband, Joe, and their 15-month-old son.
She succeeds Dave Bruns, who is retiring Friday. Bruns had served as communications manager for the AARP Florida state office since 2005.
In her new role, Mongiovi will oversee AARP messaging
