JANA ANTHOINE Co-Director/Producer — Jana is an overly-optimistic,  bourbon-drinking, Auburn football-loving, Southern belle who has been writing at Jana’s Thinking Place since 2008. She begs you not to go read any of her early pieces because it’s completely mortifying. Over the years, Jana has written for sites such as Band Back Together, Still Standing Magazine, and Project: Underblog. She was honored as a 2012 Voice of the Year by BlogHer. Her latest feats have been completing two half marathons in 2013, the Disney Glass Slipper Challenge in 2014, and the Princess Half Marathon in 2015. Jana lives in Atlanta with her son who is almost 12, and the memory of her first son who died in 2003 from late-onset Group B Strep. You can follow her on her blog, her Facebook page, Instagram, or her happy place, Twitter.

The blog name might have changed a time or two (or three) but the mission is still the same: tell your stories. After battling postpartum depression and anxiety following the birth of her son, Miranda became a contributing author at Postpartum Progress, the blog. In 2015, she became the Volunteer Manager for Postpartum Progress, Inc, a national non-profit dedicated to raising awareness of maternal mental illness. When she’s not shlepping children to extracurriculars, she’s helping people find new wines to love through her venture with WineShop at Home. She also gets paid to watch TV and write about it. Miranda was a finalist for a We Still Blog Award at the 2013 Type-A Conference and has been speaking on the conference circuit since. She lives in Atlanta with her husband and their two children. You can find her at Caffeine and Cabernet, or follow her on Twitter or Facebook. (She really loves Instagram!)
