More About Dana

As their 5-Star, verified reviews will show, my clients include experienced managers, directors and executives from AAA, BayCare, Burton Snowboards, Eckerd College, Facebook, Nordstrom, Kaiser Permanente, Yale University, Red Cross, and others.

I’ve helped over 2,000 clients successfully navigate career transitions, including starting or growing their own small business or landing a better paying job. You can, and should be one of them!

I know what it takes to go from being stuck to being successful. Growing up with a hearing disability in a poor family from Washington, DC, taught me at an early age how to overcome negative environments. I built a successful career in sales and marketing which led others to ask me to train and coach their sales teams. When I’m not coaching, I spend most of my time sailing, hiking and hanging out with my husband and my dog. 

5 Star Reviews

I highly recommend scanning the reviews to understand the kinds of people and problems that I have worked with successfully.

- Rubin S., Sr. Sales and Marketing Consulting

Dana delivers exceptional Life Coaching Skills which are easily integrated into your everyday life. I have experienced "big life changes" in a short period of time working with Dana. I highly recommend her!

- Jeff C., Owner Environmental Consulting

Dana keeps me on track, focused and moving forward with the important, effective steps by cutting through the noise with her insight and wisdom.

My coaching is not theoretical; I have real-life experience on both sides of the desk, as the # 1 coach Florida and as a sales, marketing and PR executive. I’ve also:

~Taught Leadership Development at the graduate school level
~ Studied and am certified in most standard coaching methodologies and personality typing instruments including DiSC, Myers Briggs (MBTI), and the #1 trusted source for certified career coaches, PARW/CC
~Certified as a  Passion Test Facilitator

Coaching for over a decade, with a wide range of people from around the globe, means I get to work with people of all backgrounds, not just those from mainstream culture. That experience allows me to provide a unique plan for each individual client instead of using a one size fits all approach. As a woman of Brazilian descent who is not from a mainstream background that’s pretty cool.

Schedule a free Q& A to talk with me about how I can help you get that dream job and create a more meaningful life.  There is no charge for the call as it is not a coaching session. 



I came to Dana several months back to look for help with moving my career forward and finding a new job that would be a great for me. Dana worked with me to put a plan together, update my resume/LinkedIn to better suit my needs and utilize my network. She not only thought I could find a job in about 3 months, but it happened! I recommend Dana for anyone needing help with their career. She was always quick to respond to my questions and was extremely knowledgeable on handling different situations. Thank you again for pushing me to the next level!

Dana has been in this industry for a long time. She understands people and the market place. Her track record speaks for itself. I wish I would have made the decision 10 years ago.

Dana is clear, concise, and professional in all of her communication. She is nearly immediately responsive to emails and lays things out in a format that helps you face and accomplish career goals.

I just wanted to say ‘thank you’ for taking me on as a client and offering the personal VIP Intensive Day. I found every minute of it valuable and helping me to align a vision of what I should be focusing on moving forward. It not only helped me with uncovering and clarifying my true passions but the immediate steps needed to move forward in my job search.
