Dana has recognized through her experience as a writer, artist and minister that lives can be miraculously transformed through music, literature and art, simply because individuals witness spiritual and human qualities of themselves within brilliant expressions and affirmative reflections. In many of her encounters and conversations with adults and children she garnered a deeper understanding of the transformative powers of The Word, therefore, she not only uses letters and symbols to communicate the thoughts, emotions and feelings of humanity, she also uses visual forms and images. Her collection of photography,The Word: In Visual Form, is simply a storybook of metaphoric reflections that have been given new dimensions. In other words, photography has given Dana an opportunity to breathe life into—The Word.
Currently, Dana spends much of her time writing inspirational content: scripts, articles, essays, stories and performance pieces, capturing through her camera’s lens, powerful and vibrant images, sharing readings from her work while accompanied by a soloist or live band and lecturing around the country. Her talks focus on what it takes for individuals to build and empower their own lives and communities. She says, “It is very easy for many of us to focus on the “unpleasant” conditions and circumstances of our lives, but what if we change our perspectives by simply replacing the narrow glass lens of the mind with a new one, allowing us to see our lives and the world from a more healthy and life-affirming view? Would it still seem impossible to live life beautifully?”
Dana speaks before small and large groups and is known to teach and deeply inspire her audience. She has created national and international movements and an on-line anthology. Dana received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Eastern Connecticut State University and a Master of Arts degree in Liberal Studies and Humanities from Wesleyan University. Upon graduating from college, she was hired by a Fortune 500 company where she spent thirteen years working in
