Dana was born in St. Albert but raised in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. She spent all of her summers outdoors enjoying the rivers, beaches, and waterfalls her hometown offered. After graduating, she moved back out to St. Albert to work and make enough money to travel to Australia. But things don’t always go as planned and instead she met and married her best friend. They have now planted their roots in Beaumont where they want to raise their 3 year old son Oliver and baby girl Stella.
Real Estate has always been a passion Dana has wanted to follow from a very young age. When her Grandparents used to visit the Island, she would go to open houses with her Grandma and dream about the people who would fit perfectly in the homes. Once moving back to Alberta as much as she wanted to pursue a career in Real Estate right away, she knew she needed to get some life experience under her belt first in order to help her future clients with all of their needs. Over the past 6 years she has purchased her first home, which she now has turned in a rental property. Her next home purchase was a new build, which she was able to gain valuable knowledge on the ins and outs of the process that goes into building a new home. Interior Design also drives her passion for homes, and in 2015 she received a certificate in Interior Design. Most recently she has become a member of the condo board at her investment property in order to help gain as much knowledge to help clients looking for properties that are run by condo boards.
Over the years she has gained experience in the housing industry from working for home construction companies, to most recently, working in the mortgage department for a large Edmonton home builder. Since moving to Beaumont, as a young family, Dana has been getting out into the community to soak up everything it has to offer. Being a mom, she is able to understand there are many important factors that go into choosing a home that fits differently for each unique family. With her passion for Real Estate, she will help her clients find their perfect fit.
