Diversity, social justice, and multiculturalism have always been an important part of Dana’s life.  She grew up in a small, but very diverse, Iowa-town of 2,500 people and remembers often having to defend the beauty of her diverse community, her biracialism, her full-figured physique, her love of sports as a female, and her “designerless” jeans throughout much of her young adulthood.

A knack for documentary filmmaking led her to pursue a bachelor of arts degree in Electronic Media and Communications from the University of Northern Iowa and live in Hollywood for a few years before returning to her home state where she now raises a family.

As an administrative services coordinator in the Chief Diversity Office, Dana supports the diversity resources coordinators with programming and events geared to make the UI campus a more inclusive and welcoming environment for all students, faculty, and staff.  She also supports the Chief Diversity Office’s finance and human resources manager.

She is a member of the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) campus affiliate, a Safe Zone ally, and enjoys marketing and advocating for all of the great things her department does for the campus and community.
