Born and raised in Delaware (yes, Delaware is a state—the first state!), Dana graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Hotel, Restaurant & Institutional Management. Dana moved to Orlando seven years ago to follow her passion for the hospitality industry (that’s not the full story, but you’ll have to ask her directly for the details).
Dana joins Destination MCO with over eleven years of experience in Corporate Meeting Planning, Event Design, DMC services, and Transportation Logistics Management. Having grown up in the hospitality industry, she’s developed an eye for service excellence in all she does.
As continuing education is extremely important to her, Dana regularly attends industry conferences, tradeshows, networking functions and seminars to stay abreast of transportation industries' events. In 2014, Dana earned her CMP (Certified Meeting Professional) designation, a globally recognized credential of excellence in the Meeting, Convention, Exhibition, and Events industry.
Her driving force at work is her commitment to quality, service and building strong relationships both internally within the company and with our external client base. Dana is excited to leverage her events background and to serve as a fresh perspective to the transportation industry.
According to Dana, the most rewarding part of her job is helping to manage the company’s incredible growth over the last few years and being a part of a true success story!
In her spare time, she loves to travel, dine out and just have fun! Dana’s motto—work hard, play harder!
