Rev. Dana is a fun, polished, and professional Pittsburgh wedding officiant. Dana is in her 4th year as the Drama Director at Shady Side Academy in Pittsburgh, PA and has been teaching for over twenty years. When she’s not busy performing wedding ceremonies, running the drama program, or teaching acting and theater history courses, Dana is an actor, mother and wife.
Rev. Dana has performed in a number of productions in New York and Pittsburgh, including The Rep, the Caravan Theatre of Pittsburgh, and Quantum Theatre. Beyond acting, Dana loves playing one of her favorite roles as mom to her five-year-old Jack and loving wife to fellow actor Tony.
Originally from Seattle, Rev. Dana deeply enjoys performing wedding ceremonies, renewal of vows ceremonies, christenings and memorial services. Inspired by her step-father, who was ordained in 1969 and married her and Tony in 2005, Dana decided it was a great way to help those out there who are looking for a unique, powerful, minister. Guided by her step-father who has been performing as a minster (as well as a teacher) for more than 30 years, Dana has acquired the skills and developed a real love for the art of ministry. She looks forward to continuing what she learned from her mentor throughout the greater Pittsburgh area, where she is especially excited to finally perform same sex marriages!
