After years of feeling unfulfilled in the corporate world, Dana Smith embarked on a new career as a leadership development coach. Soon after, her 19-year-old son was hit by a train. Garrett's passing caused Dana to question everything. Taking all she learned from this profound experience, she combined her coaching skills with a spiritual perspective, providing a unique and dynamic platform for her clients.
Prior to establishing her coaching practice, Smith was a managing partner of a sales and marketing consulting firm serving an array of clients, from startups to Fortune 500 companies. She is co-founder of Garrett's Space, a nonprofit organization supporting young people. At Marylhurst, she co-teaches coaching and leadership classes in the Department of Communication Studies.
