Yana Jones

Brand Manager

Yana Jones Portrait

Ukrainian-Native, Skier, Cookie Connoisseur

Born with curiosity and ambition, this Ukrainian native traveled across the world before landing in Texas as our Brand Manager. With a strong background in freelance marketing, Yana ensures our clients' brands resonate with customers at every level of their story. When she's not focusing on brands, you'll most likely find Yana on another outdoor adventure - either skiing mountain tops or hiking less explored trails.

Every little detail matters when you're trying to figure out the big picture.

Born in Kyiv, Ukraine, Yana had the good fortune of spending two summers in Galveston in a work-study-travel program prior to moving to Houston from Ukraine permanently. It was there that she met her now-husband, a native Texan.

Then in 2019, Yana Jones joined the BrandExtract team as our newest Brand Manager. A former marketing freelancer, Yana has worked on projects for the hospitality and medical device industries, plus digital marketing and SEO engagements. Yana loves getting hands-on with brand strategy and enjoys the challenges that come with being a Brand Manager.

When asked why she joined BE, Yana said she was attracted to BE's "amazing team, fun culture and interesting client portfolio."

"It's never boring," Yana said, describing BE. "You get to work with great clients and an inspiring team."

In her free time, Yana enjoys traveling, spending time outdoors skiing and hiking, reading and photography. She also believes that cookies are the best sweets ever - her favorites are snickerdoodles.
