Meet the Team Behind ITO

Inside Then Out was launched three years ago as a brand created to inspire intentionality and growth. Over the years we are so grateful to have built both our team and community. Our team consists of six talented, diverse, and passionate women. I, Indra - Content Writer at ITO (pictured second in from right) had the opportunity to interview each of the fabulous women behind Inside Then Out. 

Read more to get a more intimate introduction to the team behind Inside Then Out.

Nya - Founder and CEO

Nya Jones, CEO of Inside Then Out

What is your favorite part of working here? I love waking up every day doing what I love and knowing that we are making an impact in people’s lives. I have also been blessed with the most amazing team of women who are extremely talented and such a pleasure to work with.

What is your favorite product of ours? This is a really hard question, but there will always be a special place in my heart for our first product, the Better Every Day Journal. I have also been loving the Dig Deeper Journal lately. 

What keeps you motivated in life? Knowing that I am making an impact that is bigger than myself. 

Where is your happy place? My home is where I am the most at peace and creative. I have intentionally designed my home so that it’s minimal and calming.

What is one thing you wish people knew about you? That I am very sensitive. As a CEO, I think sometimes I can appear like I have a hard shell, but the truth is I am very in touch with my emotions and overthink about a lot of things. 

 

Britney - Influencer & Strategic Partners Manager 

Britney, partnerships manager of Inside Then out

What is your favorite part of working here? I love working in an atmosphere where I share the same passion for wellness and mental health as my colleagues. It’s a great feeling when everyone is aligned and equally excited about the work they do. 

What is your favorite product of ours? Our Dig Deeper Journal has been my jam! I’ve been writing in it daily, and it’s helped me to reflect as I enter a new chapter in my life. Sometimes free-formed journaling doesn’t come easy to me, so it’s nice to be guided through the prompts that our Dig Deeper Journal has to offer.

What keeps you motivated in life? There are a lot of things that keep me motivated in this life, but one in particular would be the impact I’m able to have on others each day. I strive to lead with kindness and compassion in my day-to-day life, and I enjoy seeing the impact that has on others in my interactions with them. Knowing that I brightened someone's day or gave them the motivation they needed to keep going fills me up.

Where is your happy place? My apartment! My fiancé and I live on the beach, and it’s been the most calming experience I’ve ever encountered. I love sitting on our couch and watching the sunset in the evenings over the water. 

How did you find out about Inside Then Out? Wow, I came across ITO when Nya started the brand back in 2020! The following year, she actually gifted me the  Better Every Day Journal which came at a pivotal time in my healing journey. Ever since then, I’ve had a special place in my heart for Inside Then Out. Now, being able to work with a brand that played a part in my growth over the past years feels like a dream.


What is one thing you wish people knew about you? I wish people knew how unserious and silly I could be! When people first meet me I tend to come off reserved and a bit quiet, but that’s far from who I really am. Once they get to know me they see my true sense of humor and witty personality. I guess I really do have two sides as a Gemini!

Delaney - Social Media Manager  

Delaney, social media manager

What is your favorite part of working here? I love that I get to work with an amazing group of women and express my creativity by creating aesthetically pleasing videos! 

What is your favorite product of ours? I love the Better Every Day Journal, it's the first product I got from the brand. 

What keeps you motivated in life? I would say discipline is what keeps me motivated. There are days when I really don't want to get things done, but I push myself to achieve them because I feel better once they are completed! Discipline is more important than motivation to me because I don't always feel motivated. Thinking about my success in the future is what pushes me to complete hard tasks though. 

Where is your happy place? I would say it's more of a person than a place. My boyfriend brings me so much comfort, I would honestly be happy in any place that we get to be together :) Or the beach. It's the one place I go to decompress and I wish I lived closer to one! 

How did you find out about Inside Then Out? During my healing journey in 2020. I was going through a bad breakup at the time and really wanted to find myself again. I saw it on Tik Tok and I was sold! Now I am lucky enough to work for the company! 

What is one thing you wish people knew about you? Although I am very outgoing, there are many layers of me that people get to know over time. Also, I have written in my personal journal almost every day since 3rd grade! I started and never went back, essentially I have the story of my life in words!

Shaina - Creative Director

Shaina, creative director ITO

What is your favorite part of working here? I get to do a little bit of everything I love and more! I get to be creative, technical, analytical, and most of all I get to bring compassion and love through my work. I love seeing people's reactions and engagement on social media, or seeing certain visions come to fruition. But also, I love the team I work with! Everyone is super flexible and friendly, and there is so much space for growth, and to learn from others.

What is your favorite product of ours? I'd typically say the Better Every Day journal, but lately, I have been loving the new monthly and weekly notepads! They're bringing a lot of intentionality to my life and help me organize my thoughts. They are so beautifully minimalistic that they force me to think about my priorities and how to tackle them best.

What keeps you motivated in life? Purpose, and God. Until I knew what I was meant to do, I really was just doing what others expected me to do, or what I thought was best for me. I was just doing tasks for the sake of doing them, but I've embarked on this new journey and now I feel like I'm doing things because I want to and I'm excited to see the results!

Where is your happy place? My moments of journaling and mindfulness are my happy place, but also my family. Journaling reminds me of who I am and who I can become, just as my siblings would! And I never stop laughing around my family

How did you find out about Inside Then Out? Nya and I went to the same school. When Inside Then Out started taking off, a lot of students were talking about it, and that's how I learned about the brand! When it's first TikTok went viral and Nya posted about needing a content creator, I reached out and here I am now.


What is one thing you wish people knew about you? A lot of things about me seem 'inconsistent,' but really are just me figuring out what I love, or trying to get rid of labels. I love to slow down and notice the little things, and I love art in every single form.

Ayanna - Community Manager 

Ayanna, community manager ITO

​​What is your favorite part of working here? I love hearing the stories from our community on how this brand has helped them and the ones they care about. A lot of therapists have reached out saying they love our products and encourage their patients/clients to use them!

 What is your favorite product of ours? The Better Everyday Journal is my favorite one because it is structured with unique prompts. I look forward to reading each prompt for that specific day. Even if I skip a day I like to follow each calendar day!

What keeps you motivated in life? The fact that there are so many different places and events waiting to be experienced with family and friends. 

 Where is your happy place? Playing football with my travel coed team. We have fun together on our road trips, tournaments, and doing just about anything.

How did you find out about Inside Then Out? I have known Nya for years as a family friend and she asked if I would be interested in helping her with packaging orders. That eventually developed into assisting with customer emails and I have loved every part of it!

What is one thing you wish people knew about you? How much I care for other people no matter their background or who they are. I love learning about people who come from different walks of life.

What is one thing you wish people knew about you? That I am always trying to learn new things. I never feel like I have learned enough about the world, different cultures, and history, or have read enough - it literally keeps me up at night!
