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 yoga, running, hiking,and boating. She also enjoys traveling and exploring throughout Southwestern and Midwestern United States.

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 several years, Dana was 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 contributing writers. 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, fun and very easy to get along with.

Dana began working for Big Pharma in Cambridge, MA in the mid 1990s. She learned the ins and outs of the corporate world, working her way up the ladder in the Finance Department. She began her corporate finance career as an AP Clerk, working closely with the Purchasing Department. Her strong problem solving and analytical skills moved her up into a supervisory role in AP and then up into Treasury as an Analyst and then as the Corporate Risk Manager. She worked closely with the legal team, contracts group, sales, human resources. Dana created Standard Operations Procedures (SOP) because she had a vision of how the operation could run more securely and efficiently. Dana worked closely with the CFO and was 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 started her own bookkeeping business, cleaning business and she worked as a Realtor for Coldwell Banker in southeastern Rhode Island. She was quite successful and enjoyed the extra time with her children.

Currently Dana enjoys working as a full time letter carrier for the USPS. She spends her free time writing, reading, running and practicing yoga.
