Dana Smith Leads Life Transition Webinar

Dana Smith, communication studies faculty, will lead a life transition webinar on September 3, 2013.

In this free webinar, Change and Transitions, participants will learn tools to release resistance and embrace change with a new level of clarity and confidence.

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.
