A Berkshire County native, Dana has returned to her roots after spending the past year living in the wild and wondrous Northwest. After completing a winter internship at a small weekly newspaper in Teton Valley, Idaho, she landed on beautiful Bainbridge Island, Wash., for the summer as an intern with award-winning YES! Magazine. Dana earned her B.A. in Environmental Studies from Mt. Holyoke College in 2012. She is determined to work towards positive social, economic and environmental change and recognizes the urgent need for more accurate and audacious environmental journalism. Dana is a member of the Society of Environmental Journalists and has previously contributed environmental reporting to the Berkshire Beacon newspaper. She has also completed internships at the Worldwatch Institute, Center for EcoTechnology, EcoLogic Development Fund and OurEarth.org. In her free time Dana enjoys skiing, hiking, kayaking, traveling and watching sports. She lives in the tiny town of Washington but spends most of her days in local cafes when not working shifts at the Jockey store in Lee and Fuel in Great Barrington.
