about DANA

I was born and raised in New York and moved down to Miami seven years ago.

I am a mother of two and a licensed Esthetician with a passion for beauty products! Two years ago, I started a natural line of products, Miami Gorgeous and Miami Cool Kids, with my partner Jamie Kovelman.

Inspired by our love for our families, Miami and its beautiful beaches and sun, we set out to make a line of products that use only the best and safest ingredients for us and our little ones.

"Live everyday like its your last! When things are good, enjoy and don't say no to anything."

I love reading, going to the beach, spending time with friends and family, and working on my business.

What does your typical day look like?

Every morning I get my kids dressed, fed and dropped off at school. Then I head to the gym or my favorite work out class at Sweat Studio. After a good workout, I meet up with my partner Jamie to work, work work. In the afternoon I pick up my kids and take them to their after school activities. Next its making dinner, putting the the kids to bed and then back to work!

How do you want to use you're strength to give back to the community? 

I want to empower other women, and let them know that you can run a business and raise your family.

What is the biggest challenge you have in your business?

Time management. Each day presents its own challenges of juggling my responsibilities to my family with my responsibilities to my company. But, I always make it work. 

Why did you decide to join The Emery?

I love what The Emery stands for, and that it gives me the opportunity to be around so many other like minded business women who are also looking to achieve success and growth in their business. I am also excited to work in such a beautiful and inviting work space.
