About Dana

With a strong passion for our community and its members, it’s a priority of mine to give back both as a professional and as a volunteer. For almost 10 years, I’ve been one of Greater Lansing’s top agents, applying a decade of real estate experience, lifelong knowledge of our community, and a love of the place that I’ve been happy to call home.


As a REALTOR, I bring my strong professional background to bear with each of my clients. I have a degree in Business Administration from Northwood University that provides a core foundation across a wide range of topics. I’ve also worked outside of the real estate industry and spent time at home raising my children, both of which broadened my perspective of the macro environment and also help me better understand the demands that my clients have in their daily lives. Additionally, I actively participate in continuing education within the industry and beyond – My commitment to a growth mindset is an important part of what makes me an excellent REALTOR.


Volunteering has always been an important part of my identity. As a freshman in high school, I started volunteering at Sparrow Hospital as a Candy Striper. Delivering flowers to patients was one of the most favorite jobs I’ve ever had. I had the privilege of being able to bring some light into the lives of patients for a short time during my visits. As a Candy Striper and continued volunteer in the gift shop with my mom, I was one of the youngest volunteers to achieve the 10-year pin of honor as a volunteer at Sparrow Hospital. This commitment was the beginning of my path as a lifelong philanthropic community member. Since then, I’ve been a member, volunteer and supporter of Sparrow’s Women Working Wonders, Habitat for Humanity, Junior League of Lansing, the Greater Lansing Food Bank, Volunteers of America, Community in Schools Foundation and the University of Michigan’s Mott Children’s Hospital.


With a household of 5 children, my husband, Michael, and I are also happy to enjoy time with all of our children. They range in age from college to elementary school and participate in nearly every sport imaginable. We have frequent opportunities to celebrate their achievements in academics, sports, music and various other ventures. Additionally, we all enjoy the opportunity to travel to new and exciting places together, learning about the world that we’re living in and giving perspectives to the gifts that we each have. We strive every day to demonstrate for each of them ways in which they can become positive and supportive members of their communities.
