Dana’s expertise comes in the form of an International Relations degree from Stanford, a C.P.A., an alma mater at the Stanford Business School, and work experience at large accounting and marketing firms. Coupled with her volunteer work, love for family life, and volunteer positions in church, youth sports, and Young Life, Dana found a calling in service to others by using her extensive skills. For over thirteen years, Dana and her husband Mike have served on the Young Life Africa Committee, which has allowed them to make several trips to Africa to meet other Young Life leaders, and, incidentally, Karama artisans. Her love for Karama flourished, and she soon offered her finance and marketing skills to the company, where she develops marketing and business strategies and evaluates finances as a member of the Karama Board. Dana loves the Karama community, which challenges her to grow in her faith and passion for helping others to find meaningful employment. Dana lives with her husband and three children in Palo Alto, where she bakes, runs, reads, and drinks strong coffee in her spare time.
