She draws inspiration from her amazing family and community who have been doing this work for generations. Dana is a seasoned equity trainer, facilitator, and strategist. At Center for Health Progress, she combines her skills and passion for health to bring more allies into the work to make health justice a reality in Colorado.
Prior to joining Center for Health Progress in 2016, she designed and led community health projects throughout Colorado, Utah, and New York. She spent four years on the Mile High Connects Transit Advisory Council and board of the Westwood Food Cooperative.

They all love to spend time in their garden and in the mountains.
