When Dana took her first class at thebarrE with her neighbor, she immediately fell in love with the workout and the staff. She believes thebarrE experience is a complete mind, body, and soul workout that leaves her feeling refreshed and walking out of the studio spreading only positive vibes! After a week at thebarrE, Dana knew she wanted to become an instructor to use her gifts to help others feel the same way.
Dana has a lifelong passion for fitness and performing arts, beginning with ballet at three years old, dancing all the way through until college. She cheered through middle school and high school, and in high school she was a runner on the 6A championship winning track team.
For a decade, Dana worked at Belhaven University as Director of Game Day Operations and as Head Cheerleading Coach. Prior to that she was a part of the MSU Bulldog media relations team while studying communications with an emphasis in public relations. Now, Dana is a full-time account executive with Mad Genius ad agency.
When she’s not working or teaching, Dana spends a lot of her spare time volunteering. She has recently joined the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary, and is a graduate and former chair of Leadership Madison County. Lover of Jesus and sweet tea, Dana now lives in Brandon at the Reservoir with her husband and their two precious kiddos!
