The Full Story
Just a creative girl, workin' in a corporate world
I wore the suits and heels for sixteen years...

Hi, I'm Janda (like panda with a J.)
A multi-passionate marketing pro, wife + mama, and podcast host.
I grew up in sunny Florida but now call Chattanooga, TN my home so don't be shocked when I throw out 'y'all' and references to grits and humidity.
Fun fact, I wake up nearly every day with a new song in my head, and even though I can carry a tune, if I do say so myself, my kids always tell me stop singing in the car.
Uh, no....this is my stage, children, and Whitney needs my help.
But back to the marketing-y things... Over the last 18 years, I've held roles in television production, insurance marketing & employee communications, healthcare marketing, and took a turn in agency world.. I learned a heckuva lot and enjoyed my work but when I became a mama, I realized that a rigid schedule and daily commute didn't leave me much time with my baby. I wanted more flexibility but was never able to get it in those corporate roles.
In 2022, after an unexpected layoff, I officially launched my business, Wild Brand Creative LLC. I help entrepreneurs and small businesses develop clear messaging and design functional, findable, and beautiful websites. My superpower is helping businesses drill down to what makes them unique, and how to package that messaging on your website and marketing collateral. Check it out here.
As fate would have it, soon after I launched my business, I was recruited by a national insurance broker to serve as an employee benefits communications consultant. And I am able to work remotely with a bit of travel here and there.
So here I am, back in the world of benefits by day and running a "micro-agency" in the meantime.
That just means I hire talented subcontractors to fulfill some of the work while I lead the creative direction and brand strategy.
I believe wholeheartedly in the power of community, so I'm sharing my journey in a little podcast I call This Beautiful Mess. - Lessons in Marketing, Mindset, & Motherhood.
I'd love for you to listen and hopefully be inspired and motivated to pursue your dreams, or just find a way to run your business a bit more smoothly!
