Upped to her new post in April, Jones recently launched the automated measurement service for national TV advertisers Placemedia as well as a new company website for advertisers and partners.

Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?
Be in the moment wherever you are. If it’s at work – be at work. If at home – be at home. And accept that it’s okay not to be the best at everything, all the time.

I celebrate the small successes of each day so I don’t get caught up in the small misses. And it helps that I have a very supportive husband too.
