Dana was born and raised in New Jersey, growing up on the Jersey Shore. Dana received a B.A. in Communications with concentrations in Film and Television from Seton Hall University. Only recently did Dana find her passion for horses when she took a job with Laura Chapot as a show groom in 2015. For the last 5 years she has spent her time on the professional show circuit as an FEI groom working along riders such as Laura Chapot, Erynn Ballard, Ilan Ferder, and Heather Caristo Williams. While managing Chado Farms from 2016-2018 Dana had the opportunity to assist many veterinarians with different at home procedures and decided that being a large animal veterinarian was her career goal. Dana joined the practice as an Overnight Technician in 2019. In her spare time she enjoys being on the boat or at the beach, taking long trail rides on her horse Frank, and hanging out with her dogs Rocco, Albie, and Captain Jack.
