I'm Dana.

I run communications for Beyond Type 1 - an amazing nonprofit changing what it means to live with Type 1 diabetes. This means I get to interact + learn from a global community of more than 2 million individuals impacted by T1D. As someone who's lived with the chronic, autoimmune disease since 2002, the power of this community is personal.

I also have the immense privilege of serving as lead on Beyond Type 1's Bike Beyond Ride Across America. Working with 20 T1D cyclists biking 4000 miles changed my life. Check it out - you won't regret it.

In 2016 I completed an MS in Health Communication from Tufts Medical School's Public Health Program after receiving a BS in Biology and Community Health, also at Tufts.

Otherwise I am happy skiing, hiking, biking, drinking coffee, cooking something, reading something, and exploring Northern California.
