Jennifer Boyd, 34


Market Trainer, Aflac

Charity: Ozarks Food Harvest Backpack Program


When Jennifer Boyd first took a job in sales at Aflac, her father came out of retirement because he was afraid she was going to fail. Throughout the past 12 years, she has steadily worked her way up the corporate ladder and now holds the prestigious title of market trainer, has been inducted into the Aflac President’s Club and has had the opportunity to attend dinner with her father at the Aflac CEO’s house. Needless to say, these days, her father’s concerns have passed. 

From the beginning of Boyd’s career, she knew confidence was the key to success, and she encourages others to believe in themselves. “You’re never ready for your next promotion, so say yes and figure it out,” she says. “Fake it until you make it.” Boyd is constantly striving to bring out the best in her team members and counts among her greatest accomplishments the successful mentoring of them. 

Deeply invested in her community, Boyd is involved with numerous charities, including the American Cancer Society’s Cattle Baron’s Ball, American Heart Association, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks, Habitat for Humanity, Mid-America Transplant Services, Sigma Serves Children, The Discovery Center, Tri-Sigma Alumnae Association and her charity of choice, Ozarks Food Harvest. “I didn’t realize what a need there was here in southwest Missouri and how many children would go hungry between school days,” she says. “There is such a great need that goes unnoticed.”
