Inspired by the matriarchs of her family, Dana picked up the pen and was able to overcome challenges and disappointments. Transforming pain into power, light, love and laughter!

Guided by her own compass and driven by her faith, she shares her thoughts, experiences and lessons through her writing, poetry, books and speaking engagements.
