Dana works closely with Director Susan Webb Yackee to facilitate projects supporting students, faculty, and outreach efforts throughout the La Follette School. She joined the team in early 2023 and is excited to use her background in communications to bolster La Follette’s growth as more people connect with the school’s fantastic resources.
Before joining La Follette, Dana interned in a variety of legal and political offices, helping folks to navigate complex systems. She supported constituent communications and outreach for Senator Tammy Baldwin, Governor Tony Evers, and Wisconsin State Senator Melissa Agard. She also had the privilege to work with the nonprofit Ealing Law Center in London, coordinating resources for emergency housing and immigration cases.
Dana is a proud Badger alum of the English and political science programs. In her free time, she enjoys attending concerts, spending time outdoors, and visiting the river otter family at the Henry Vilas Zoo.
