Dana is small in stature, but big on experience, energy and enthusiasm, which she brings to many aspects of our agency.
Since joining JS in 2007, she has worked on virtually all sides of our business, but has been a longtime contributor to the Orkin Commercial account, which she now leads. Dana’s tenure with Orkin includes media relations, working tradeshows, managing strategic partnerships and sales force training. So, she’s the ideal project manager to keep all the wheels turning on one of our oldest and largest accounts.
Over the past few years, Dana has also been a part of our work for East Lake Foundation, supporting the opening of Drew Charter Senior Academy and other communications efforts in this revitalized urban community near downtown Atlanta.
Outside of client work, Dana also has contributed to our own efforts in marketing, team-building and human resources, helping us live our mantra of “finding the better way.”
She began her career interning with the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA), a gig that not only introduced her to her husband, Jeremy, but also revved up her event marketing skills. Dana plugged in that experience during her early years at JS, working the Chick-fil-A Bowl and supporting Kyle Petty’s charity ride across America to benefit Victory Junction, a year-round camp for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses.
A graduate of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communications at The University of Georgia, Dana has spent most of her life in the Atlanta area. She grew up in Sandy Springs, but now lives in the Huntley Hills community, where she serves on the board of her neighborhood association. She and Jeremy enjoy traveling and cooking, but spend most their spare time these days focused on their baby daughter, Henley.
