Who We Are
Dana Tennyson earned a BBA in Marketing from the University of North Texas in 1997. During college, she interned for Crystal Clear Sound and saw the fun in event marketing when she worked for the North Texas Music Festival. The fun continued after college as the Promotions Director for Southwest Live Entertainment, a Dallas and Arlington nightclub owner. She went on to work in advertising for Initiative Media, ran her own event planning company Milten Events, and managed Chuy’s Dallas before starting a family in 2004. The workforce called Dana back in 2007 when she partnered with Verus Technologies, an IT Consulting Firm in Dallas, Texas. After working independently as a Marketing Consultant, Dana formed Billow Marketing in June 2012. She has consulted small businesses in various industries such as commercial real estate, event services, coaching, and construction. Today Dana is wife to James, a proud mother of 3 pre-teens, the Vice President of the Pottsboro Elementary PTA, a member of the Pottsboro Chamber of Commerce, and the Secretary/Treasurer of the Grayson Founders chapter of BNI. She loves to let her creative talents shine at Billow Marketing as she guides her small business clients in ways to grow their business with the help of marketing.
Lydia Pine received her Associates Degree of Visual Arts in painting at Grayson County College in 2008 and went on to receive her B.S in Graphic Design at South Eastern State University in 2012. Her professional interests include; Painting, Pottery, Photography, and Graphic Design specializing in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. She is also AdWords Search Certified. Her interest in Marketing began with her internship for the Denison Arts Council, where she took records of meetings and learned about how a non-profit entity works. As enjoyable as that was, she had to take a break due to a growing family. In 2013 she was chosen as one of the first artists for Painting With a Twist in Sherman, TX. Not long after working there, she was introduced to Dana Tennyson and invited to join the company as an Administrative Assistant. Billow Marketing has by far been one of the most mentally nourishing jobs she has worked in.
Micah Taylor earned her Bachelors of Arts in Advertising and Strategic Communications from the University of North Texas in 2011. She grew up in Pottsboro and moved back to the area in 2014 after living and working in Dallas for a few years. Proficient in Photoshop and InDesign, she has continued designing logo artwork since college and also manages small business social media accounts because of her interest in marketing. Micah loves to paint and design home decor and signs, which led her to making it in to her own business; she still does this on the side. She’s a huge baseball fan; the Texas Rangers are her favorite, and loves animals – especially her beagle Lexi. Micah joined the Billow Marketing team in January 2017.
