Senior Marketing Manager | SEO
Stefani is the heart and soul of our websites. She works night and day to keep them running smoothly, add fresh, new content, and ensure that guests have a great online experience. Along with web maintenance, Stefani handles SEO and manages our marketing department. Her primary responsibilities are tracking our performance and researching market changes to keep us ahead of the curve.
Stefani holds a bachelor’s degree in information systems from Kennesaw State and has been working full-time for Cabins for YOU since 2010. She has a deep passion for what she does, and it shows in her work. Stefani’s green thumb keeps her garden growing, she loves cats - but doesn’t have any - and (she says) she works from the best state in the country. She’s also your go-to if you need a recipe or a Netflix documentary recommendation.
Marketing & Technology Manager
As the technology and media manager, Justin ensures that all of our technology is optimized and efficient. He’s also in charge of all of our digital content– photos, videos, graphic designs, etc. – making sure it is visually appealing and working properly.
Outside of work, Justin loves photography, music, and exploring and traveling with his amazing wife, Madi. He basically lives at church, working with the production team on lights, sound, video – you name it – and he’s on a constant search for the best cup of coffee in town.
Chief Editor | Content Creator
As one of our content creators, Maria spends her days researching, whipping up fresh content, and keeping her finger on the pulse of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. If you’ve read a newsletter, blog, post, or mail-out from Cabins for YOU, you can almost guarantee her hands have been on it at some point. Maria is also our ruthless editor, showing no mercy with her metaphoric red pen.
Maria has a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and English from Freed-Hardeman University, where she ended up after 3 colleges and the quintessential figuring-out-where-she-wants-to-be-in-life college kid experience. Ever the wanderer (J.R.R. Tolkien can tell you she’s not lost), Maria loves traveling and experiencing everything she can. When she’s not typing away, you’ll find her on the road with her husband and wild little girl, binge-watching Gilmore Girls and the Great British Baking Show, or on a quest to find the best desserts around.
Content Creator | Social Media Support
Galina works closely with our marketing team to develop and post content to all our social networking sites, always staying on top of marketing and social media trends. She also works in guest research, helping find the perfect cabins that tailor to all our clientele. She loves her Cabins for YOU family -- the welcoming environment of the office family -- and swears you won’t find this kind of moral support and hospitality anywhere else!
Galina and her husband are major foodies; she loves trying all the best restaurants in Atlanta and fueling her culinary passion – particularly her talent for creating delicious pastries and desserts. She’s currently on the hunt for the best coffee shop in Georgia. And while she loves cooking, her biggest passion is art – “I breathe it!” – from graphic arts to traditional artistry. This food and art lover is also a nature nut, feeling one with nature whenever she can get outside for hiking and trailing.
Jon is the “take one for the team” guy – he works directly with Marc on a daily basis. As our marketing analyst, he monitors cabin performance, works with owners on their property’s potential, and works with the owner team to ensure top performance for owners and cabins. He has a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing from Kennesaw State University and an associate degree in business administration from Georgia Highlands.
Jon’s favorite things focus around 2 things: sports and music. Outside of work, he loves playing guitar, listening to music, watching soccer and NCAA football, playing fantasy soccer, and hanging out with the Atlanta Evertonians supporter group. His dream job: traveling overseas to work in the marketing or analytics department of an English soccer team.
Animation & Design Specialist
The ever-talented Kathy Jo - founder and creator of Melon Head Productions - brings spunk, creativity, and an outside-the-box mentality to the Cabins for YOU marketing team. She’s responsible for animation, illustration, video editing, and design in the marketing department, where she puts her BFA in Animation with a minor in business management at SCAD to good use. With a love for people and the mountains, Kathy Jo fits right in here.
Kathy Jo continues her animation and creative services at Melon Head alongside her work at Cabins for YOU, and she’s constantly drawing cartoon characters and working on her animations. You might catch her jamming out to Spice Girls (you never forget your first concert, right?!) on her way to a new coffee shop in town when she gets a free minute. She’s also obsessed with everything food, from her burger and taco pillows and shirts to the burger costume she made.
