Working with other firm leadership, Dana anticipates client needs in response to ever-evolving markets, optimizes the significance of the firm’s work and talent, and strategically enhances the visibility of the practice.
Originally trained as a landscape architect, Dana has worked as such with clients from coast to coast and around the globe on residential, resort, and commercial projects. Her focus gradually shifted to the non-practicing side of design.
