Before joining the Red Cross, Dana spent more than 20 years in retail management with a focus on inventory management, team development and training. During that time she served as part of the Change Management Team which focused on a new purchasing and inventory system for her employer.
Dana has a real passion for the investment in young women and providing them with the opportunity to grow and develop their leadership and community engagement skills. She has been an adult advisor for an international youth organization, serving as the Executive Officer for California, and most recently was elected to the international governance board.
