Dana was born in Baltimore, MD and raised in a loving home. She grew up in a typical pastors home, moving all around the United States and always looking forward to the General Assembly. She was your typical pastors kid and her parents instilled the Word of God in her, which is what has made her what she is today.
Like most teenagers, once at the age of 13, she begin to allow the influences of society to sway her judgements. She became resentful toward the church, her parents and most of all God. She begin to fill her hurts, anger and voids with many things that would only be acceptable in society. Before she knew it she found herself as a hopeless alcoholic.
After many years of living a shameful lifestyle and making many poor decisions, she found herself turning to the only one that could make a difference. At age 26, she vowed to take every experience and bad decision and give God all the glory by using it to help others. As a rebellious teen/ young adult, single mother, and former alcoholic, she is well able to show the compassion that the youth of Ireland need.
