Some of my highlights
A successful strategist, Janice works closely with the agency’s nonprofit clients to achieve their marketing and public relations goals, maximize their communications efforts and extend their outreach into the community. Her expertise extends across many public relations disciplines that are critical to organizations – internal and crisis communications, media relations, community relations, event management and promotion, as well as development/fundraising and brand management. With a wide range of marketing and public relations experience across many sectors, including leadership positions with healthcare, education, government and nonprofit organizations, Janice is uniquely qualified to assist nonprofits.
Janice earned a Master of Business Administration with a Concentration in Marketing and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a Concentration in Communications from Mississippi College. She was previously named the state Public Relations Practitioner of the Year by the Public Relations Association of Mississippi, a part of the Southern Public Relations Federation. Janice was also named one of the Top 40 Business Leaders in Mississippi by the Mississippi Business Journal and was honored to be recognized by her alma mater as their Young Alumna of the Year.
Prior to joining DNA, Baddley was the principal executive in an independent marketing consulting firm. She has previously served as a statewide President/CEO, as well as Chairman of the board, for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Director of Marketing and Communication Services for a multi-state, faith-based healthcare system. Janice intimately understands both the challenges and rewards experienced by nonprofit leaders and recognizes the importance of creative, ongoing community outreach efforts. An active community volunteer and experienced nonprofit board member, she has also taught marketing, public relations and advertising on the university level.
Outside of client work, Janice finds joy in her faith, family and friends. Bike rides on Kiawah Island, the solitude of a trip to the mountains, exploring new cities, waterfall hikes and a book that you “just can’t put down” are a few of her favorite things. She and her husband Scot, a local nonprofit CEO, relish time with their two “almost grown” children who are strategically maneuvering their way through college and law school. Perhaps surprisingly, they willingly share their home with two very opinionated Chihuahuas.
