Dana hails from Deerfield, Illinois- a suburb just north of Chicago. After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, Dana knew that she wanted her acting career to begin in Chicago. Since graduating, Dana has appeared on a number of stages in Chicago, including Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Writers Theatre, Royal George Theatre and most recently, Court Theatre. She has also appeared in a number of print, commercial and industrials and is so excited to see what else is in store! Favorite roles include Casey (First Date, Chicago premiere), Sally Bowles (Cabaret) and Lady Macbeth (Kabuki Lady Macbeth)
In her free time, you might find her practicing yoga, walking her dog Buddy, cooking or seeing incredible theatre in this amazing city she is lucky enough to call home!
