A seasoned PR professional, she is both personable and tenacious, with a keen strategic eye and exceptionally strong media contacts.

She is a Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI) gold award winner many times over, including winning three prestigious HSMAI Platinum Awards for VisitScotland. At LDPR, Dana’s extensive experience ranges from hosting journalists in the likes of remote Tanzania, Botswana and India to leading events with collaborative partners such as Balvenie, HUNTER Boots and Nikon Cameras. Her drive for quality and meaningful results have landed her clients in the likes of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Condé Nast Traveler, Saveur, The Today Show, Town & Country, DEPARTURES, Bloomberg Pursuits and many more. Dana additionally has led many of LDPR’s culinary programs and campaigns-- working with leading chefs and personalities like José Andres and the late Anthony Bourdain.

Considered the agency's European destination expert, Dana has made countless visits to Italy, Sicily, Croatia, Austria, Denmark, Spain, Portugal and beyond. Fluent in Italian and a lover of the kitchen, Dana loves exploring new destinations through its cuisine.

My Simple Pleasures: Cooking for friends and family, cozying in with a loved one, a great glass of wine, languidly reading in a café, a long walk with my dog.

Next On The Bucket List: Uruguay, Budapest and Georgia (the country not the state) are at the top of my list. And Tokyo. Which has been on there too long! I’ve long dreamt of wandering its vibrant alleyways and eating my way through the izakayas and soba shops.

Favorite Travel Quote: "A great way to learn about your country is to leave it."
