A passion for promotion is the best way to describe Dee. From her first job out of college working in radio to traveling the state and country training professionals on how to market technical education, to living in the advertising agency world in Texas and Arkansas, she has touched hundreds of brands with a cheerleader spirit.
There is no project too small or too large that can’t be done well and that’s why her career mantra has been “The Devil is in the Details.” As a former car wash and self-storage “princess” of Midlothian, Texas, Dee learned early that there is no substitute for good old-fashioned hard work.
Dee most recently worked to establish the LockTite Storage brand with an emphasis in Dripping Springs and Wimberley and the other 7 locations in Texas. By building a business as a community partner with a focus on the people, not the profits, success is inevitable.
“The best advice I have ever gotten was on my first day at Stone Ward Advertising in Little Rock when the president said to me, ‘Don’t confuse effort with results.’ That thought is always in my mind and is a driving force in all I do professionally and personally.”
Dee has spent the past 25 years listening and learning, then promoting and selling each client’s product or service. And she always brings a level of enthusiasm to her work that is contagious.
Her favorite job of all time is parenthood, which she believes should be called a “practice” like law and medicine. After all, we are learning every day just like the kids are! Her favorite hobby is going to Hill Country music venues to show off her arm-candy husband Todd.
After nearly a decade in local tv news and corporate public relations, Dana embraced the life of a “nomadic” military wife and launched a career that could travel with her. Serving as a marketing consultant and small business owner, Dana specialized in producing, promoting and presenting national travel infomercials that aired in major markets throughout the country. Her love of writing expanded to include the ever-evolving digital marketing world, where she helped design and launch several small business websites and social media campaigns. In a desire to further sharpen her skills, she returned to school at the University of Texas where she studied digital marketing. Her level of creativity and ability to work magic in all types of situations sets her apart from other marketing pros.
Despite having a full plate, Dana still leaves time for her other creative outlet, Sew Sisters, a custom apparel pop up shop.
When not dreaming up life’s next adventure, Dana and her now “military-retired, airline-hired” husband John, are trying to survive two teenage children, under the supervising eyes of their well-fed golden retrievers.
