"I first heard Dana speak in a lecture at the Classical Singer convention. In my career coaching, she had me speak my career dreams into a reality. I have never felt so empowered as an educator or so encouraged as an entrepreneur. In a time of uncertainty, she guided me toward concrete steps and professional advice to better my future. Dana carries the torch for all of us and is truly the exemplary empowered musician. I can’t thank her enough."

Daniela Monzon Villegas

What Clients Have to Say

“The session with Dana was so helpful and uplifting. It made my day! This was the first time in a while that I felt I received solid advice and feedback about my career. In our business, each one of us is unique. Dana has the ability to see what you are capable of and show you the many possibilities to empower yourself."

Sahar Hassan, Pro Mezzo-Soprano

What Clients Have to Say

"I had so many ideas, aspirations, questions and fears about my post grad life, but no a plan. Dana was able to break everything down into organized, systematic, tangible goals. Her advice put my mind at ease and gave me the extra boost of confidence that I needed to move forward in this next phase of life."

Casey Kunmann

What Clients Have to Say

"As a young singer just getting my feet wet, I found Dana’s advice and input invaluable. She has an impressive amount of knowledge and insight, and is professional and efficient with the hour-long session. Absolutely worth the time and money to coach with Dana!"

Jessica Toupin

What Clients Have to Say

"I have been through two degrees and a good handful of highly regarded young artist programs, and I gained more practical career advice from one session with Dana than I did in any of those programs. It's the stuff they don't teach you in school."

Omar Najmi

What Clients Have to Say

“Like many of us, I have felt adrift and without direction in my career since Covid-19 hit. Dana was able to wonderfully tailor the session to what I was looking for. She took the time to dive into my individual experience and strengths in order to help me plan a path forward. I now feel empowered with new tools and energized to move toward my next steps. I only wish I had reached out to Dana a year ago, two years ago!”
