Dana is from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and has a lifelong interest in the coastal towns of the East coast of the US. She is very familiar with the lifestyles of the coastal towns of the Eastern sea towns from the Florida Keys up to the coast of Maine. She loves boating, fishing, clamming, and tanning. Water is Dana's second skin!!

Dana spent a decade working in corporate finance, starting in the pharmaceutical industry in the mid-1990s. She worked in the finance department, ranging duties from accounts payable, purchasing, and moving up to a treasury analyst and corporate risk manager. After ten years Dana went on to work in a small accounting firm as a forensic accounting analyst. Dana has a mind that can drive and dig into details that most people would push aside as "mundane". Dana's desire for perfection and eye for detail make her exceptional as an analyst. Dana is very diligent in all aspects of her professional aspirations. Nothing is halfway.

For the past three years, Dana has also been the managing editor of a small private publication in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. Her writers commend her for her ability to meet tight deadlines and to motivate writers to meet strict deadlines. She's also very diplomatic in her communications with writers who can have varied personalities.

All in all, Dana is a dynamic writer, communicator, and worker. She is a sharp thinker and very easy to get along with.

Summary of Industry Experience

Real Estate

Dana is a licensed agent working under the broker Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. She is an ardent supporter of South County, Rhode Island and is working hard with residents of her community to manage their buying and selling needs.

Dana has found that a good number of clients are coming from New York to Rhode Island. The great things about Rhode Island for New Yorkers are that 1) it's not as far as the Cape and 2) the taxes are lower than in CT!!


Dana began working at a large pharmaceutical company in Cambridge, MA in the mid 1990s. She learned the ins and outs of the corporate world while starting in Accounts Payable and Purchasing, dealing with the many tribulations that fall within that realm when certain parameters don't have consistency. Dana was charged with creating Standard Operations Procedures (SOP) because she had a vision of how the operation could run more securely and efficiently. She was subsequently promoted to Treasury Analyst, working directly under the company's CFO and then she moved up to become the corporate Risk Manager, entrusted with privileged corporate information to ensure the safety and well-being of the corporation.

After deciding to start a family, Dana took a corporate break for a few years and had a short stint as a Forensic Analyst for a small accounting firm. Dana thoroughly enjoyed the diligence involved in this work. The national economic status, however, meant that Dana would be laid off and would have to find another path.

Dana spent a great deal of time with her wonderful children in their early years. While being away from her corporate life, Dana decided to start an online endeavor of crocheting hats and crafting tutu's for sale online. She was quite successful and enjoyed the extra time with her children.

Now that Dana's children are engaged in school activities, Dana has engaged in the corporate world once again. She is now an active member of the National Association of Realtors, the Rhode Island Association of Realtors, she is a member of the Kent/Washington Board of Realtors and she is engaged in the brokerage of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

Dana is loving her days of investigating properties, meeting new clients, and basically learning all there is to know about South County, Rhode Island!
