Dana received her Bachelor’s in Psychology from UF in 1995 and her Master’s and Specialist degrees in Mental Health Counseling from UF’s College of Education in 1999.  For several  years, Dana worked in the mental health sector, specializing in crisis intervention, suicide prevention, brief therapy, and community-centered education programs.  From 2002 to 2006, Dana directed the training program for a local crisis counseling agency where she worked primarily with University of Florida students.  She loved working with the college population and has been a life-long appreciator and advocate of the arts, so the transition from the mental health sector to undergraduate advising at the University was a natural fit for Dana.  She started working for the School of Art + Art History as the Undergraduate Advisor in the Summer of 2006.     As a licensed mental health counselor with a focus on crisis intervention, many say she’s uniquely prepared for dealing with undergraduate art majors. ;-)  

As the Undergraduate Advisor to the School of Art + Art History, Dana advises over 400 art and art history majors and serves as the lead contact for admissions and recruitment for the School.  Dana also currently serves as the College of Fine Arts’ representative on the University Advising Council and is a faculty member of the University’s Student Conduct Committee.
