Rev. Dana is a fun, polished, and professional Pittsburgh wedding officiant. Dana just completed her 8th 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, directing shows or teaching acting and public speaking courses, Dana is an actor, mother and wife.
Rev. Dana has performed at a number of theaters in New York, Pittsburgh, Chicago and Seattle starring in some great roles, like Regan in King Lear and Clytemnestra in Electra. Beyond acting, Dana loves playing one of her favorite roles as mom to her ten-year-old Jack and loving wife to fellow actor and officiant, 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 for over four decades (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!
