Roxy Jacenko Career Details
Roxy Jacenko is the director of Sydney-based public relations firm which was founded in 2004 when Jacenko was 24 years old. Roxy has extended her business over the years to help found the ministry of talent. She also created her daughter’s popular hair accessory business, Pixies Bows.
In 2010, Jacenko signed a deal with the Seven Network to star in a reality television show called The SweatBox.

Later in 2010, Channel Seven canceled the production of the show.
Jacenko published her first book, Strictly Confidential: A Jazzy Lou Novel in 2012. It was published by Allen & Unwin and is a semi-fiction behind-the-scenes view of the public relations and fashion industries. Columnist Ros Reines, who reviewed the book before its official release, suggested many of the characters were, so thinly disguised as to almost be see-through, that many were, in fact, caricatures of real and well-known Sydney socialites.
In a 2013 Good Weekend feature, Jacenko admitted she shared several significant character traits with the novel’s main character including an “extreme” dedication to her career, a passing addiction to Nurofen and “strict” dieting. In 2017, Jacenko has also admitted to battling depression while her husband was in jail.
In 2013, Jacenko appeared on the Australian version of The Celebrity Apprentice. Her appearance was characterized by conflicts with Prue MacSween and swimmer Stephanie Rice and by accusations she favored some team-mates over others. In the season finale, Jacenko, John Steffensen and Jeff Fenech were named as runners-up to Rice who was named Celebrity Apprentice.
