I'm a communicator and connector. I'll build communities around your brand and increase revenue.

Hi, I’m Dana! I’ve run marketing campaigns, built websites, organized tens of thousands of dollars worth of product, and created a mini philosophy-themed cooking show. I completed a month long intensive project where I increased the revenue of my family’s business in a three act system I developed myself! Now, I’m ready to bring all these skills and my excitement to learn more to marketing and sales roles! Let’s talk about how I would make a great fit on your team.
