A mission-driven servant leader with nearly two decades of experience crafting communications and brand strategy across multiple industries and organizations, Bana is also a passionate storyteller dedicated to shedding a light on the strengths and challenges of military family life.
Bana is a recipient of the Iron Mike Award and the Dr. Mary E. Walker Award, in recognition for her volunteer service as a military spouse. In addition, she is a member of the 2021 Scholar cohort of the George W. Bush Institute’s Stand-To Veteran Leadership Program.
Bana graduated from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and Martin J. Whitman School of Management with degrees in public relations and marketing management. When she’s not on a soapbox defending the Oxford comma, you can find her exploring the nearest national park.
