ABOUT JANA

I walk around like everything is fine, but deep down, inside my shoe, my sock is sliding off.

As you can see, I don’t take myself too seriously. Most of the time anyway. I have 4 kids: (2) 20 year old sons (they prefer to be called “men” now), and (2) daughters ages 15 and 8. I live in Blue Springs, MO with my husband, Bryant, our daughters and 3 crazy dogs.

On a professional note, I have over 20 years of experience in marketing, creative, and UX with 10 years of organizational management and executive leadership. I’m a problem-solver and someone who can execute both efficiently and effectively. According to Meyers-Briggs, I’m an INTJ, or what’s affectionately referred to as “The Architect”.

Structure, simplicity, commonality, consistency – my recipe for a great user experience built on best practices, research, analysis, and years of experience.

Developing campaigns to meet or exceed business goals is my bread and butter. I’m an idea person and problem-solver that can create and execute on a vision.
