Business websites, business software, and targeted communications plans that don’t suck.
Jam Start Media is a Smart Access IT, Inc. company founded in the “by the skater, for the skater” tradition. From a combination of expertise working with clients in a diverse range of industries and the first-hand experience of a long-time roller derby athlete on our leadership team, we recognized that roller derby leagues have the same communications and technical needs as our small business and enterprise clients.
Our passion and profound interest in the sport of roller derby fuels our enthusiasm to help the sport and roller derby leagues grow and succeed. Outside of our offerings, there are simply no good options for non-profit volunteer-based organizations to acquire reliable, competent, and reasonably-priced professional services. We take pride in fulfilling that need more effectively than any other I.T. company in the world (yes, the entire world. Just ask us how.).
We look forward to helping you develop a kick ass website for your league.
Roller Derby League Support Services
We provide ongoing maintenance and support for all of our customers AND training on our self-service admin user interface so that your league can perform its own updates or request help from our support staff to make them. You don’t ever need worry about losing access to your website or the ability to perform updates, even when roles shift to different members of your league, because we are always there to provide the dedicated personal support you need, and at no additional charge.

Krista is a graduate from the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism with a Master of Arts in Strategic Public Relations. Since 2008, she has worked on projects with a wide range of organizations and clients in the sports, education, legal and non-profit sectors, helping them to develop their brands, develop their online or offline presence on relevant channels of the media mix, and make meaningful connections with their audiences. Krista is a communications strategist with an absolute love and passion for helping individuals and organizations tell their stories. Her background brings together strengths in communications planning, digital marketing, brand development, reputation management, content creation, print design, front-end website design, and graphic design.
With more than six years of experience in the sport of roller derby, Krista ("Bambi in the Headlights") has competed with teams and in tournaments both local and out-of-state. In 2016, she started her first season as a transfer to the Wine Town Rollers' Women's Flat Track Derby Association Charter Team, the "Whine Makers." Prior to joining the Wine Town Rollers, Krista spent two seasons with the I.E. Derby Divas, and two seasons with the Orange County Roller Girls. In January 2016, she started using her experience to give back as a trainer and coach for new and experienced skaters. She is presently serving as a travel team coach for the Wine Town Rollers. Throughout her tenure in the sport, she has been involved in multiple leadership roles and committees and donated countless hours in web and graphic design projects for local leagues.
