I am a seasoned Social Worker/Therapist with over 10 years of experience. I have authored several articles and one research study during my career. I enjoy integrating my work with my personal life by volunteering in the community and becoming a member of several associations dedicated to the improvement of our community’s social wellbeing. I have been a rotary member for the past 2 years as well as serving on the public relations committee under Stroud Borough Mayor, Tarah Probst.
On a personal level, I enjoy swimming, playing table or court tennis, and am not a stranger to comedy and open mics.
I live in Lake Ariel with my husband Stephen Scott and our 3 dogs; Maggie, Dakota and Sammy. I started Trust mortgage, a branch of my family’s business over 1 year ago in PA.
I am passionate about my community and supporting many community projects and organizations. I am proud to say that I am the Treasurer of the Honesdale Rotary. I am also a committee member on Chamber of North Poconos. I support women and children and am part of the woman in business council through the Pocono Chamber of Commerce as well as a Founding Leader of the Pennsylvania Pod for the B.I.G., Believe, Inspire, Grow, a women's networking organization.
More recently, I became Treasurer for Youth Infusion supporting young people in our community. When I am not involved in community projects or volunteering, I spend time with my husband and dogs on different adventures. Did I mention I also have a business named after my two funny pups, Maggie and Dakota called Dana's Funny Doggies? Keeps me busy but I love everything I am doing to support my community and that which I am passionate about.
