Jana grew up in a small town in southeast South Dakota and graduated from South Dakota State University with a master’s in mass communication. After moving to KC with her husband Ben in 2014 and failing to launch to fame as a pug whisperer, it became clear that a career in content marketing was in order. When she's not blogging or reading about unsolved murders, Jana enjoys hiking with her dogs, binge-watching Netflix, fishing, and doing home reno and design projects.

I have been riding and showing horses competitively since I was eight years old. I was team captain on my college equestrian team and competed in the reining discipline. Reining is similar to the event of figure skating, but just imagine it without the ice and on a horse instead. It's hard to explain. Just Google it.
