Bana Jobe

Communications Manager, Marketwave
Volunteer of the Month, September 2015

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?

I grew up in Dayton, Texas—a tiny town northeast of Houston. Except for a few months spent studying abroad in college, I’ve lived in Texas my entire life: from Houston to Austin to Dallas and back to Austin in 2014.

WHAT IS YOUR VOLUNTEER ROLE?

I’m on the technology committee as a blog manager—helping publish new content for our members each week. We have a great team and it’s been a blast.

WHAT IS YOUR DAY JOB?

I am a communications manager at Marketwave, an integrated marketing agency in Dallas. Most of the time, my job involves a mix of content and PR strategy for healthcare and energy clients. I’ve been with Marketwave for a little more than four years now, and started with them when my husband and I lived in Dallas. When we moved to the ATX, they offered me a work-from-home situation so here I am!

WHY DID YOU JOIN THE AMA?

Between working from home and driving up to Dallas once a month, I wanted to find a way to stay connected with the Austin community. Austin AMA has helped me do that, and I’ve met some great people along the way, too.

WHAT (OR WHO) IS YOUR FAVORITE MARKETING BLOG OR THOUGHT LEADER?

I honestly can’t get enough of the Content Marketing Institute. And I’m completely obsessed with Quora.

WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU’VE BEEN INSPIRED BY LATELY?

Being outside in the Hill Country keeps me grounded, refreshed and exercised. Fresh air has always been my favorite source of inspiration.

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN ONE WORD:

Genuine.
