Dana Platin mentors strong women who want to become even stronger, more balanced, and fearless. As a passionate, avid athlete, Dana has used her participation in triathlons, cycling, and mountaineering as a way to set personal goals to push herself beyond what she thought was possible.
While personal triumphs have taught her discipline, determination, motivation, and commitment, it is her work for 20-years in international development and the health sector which has helped her gather wisdom from the courageous and resilient women she has supported, lead, and, ultimately learned from. In particular, her experiences have taught her the importance of remaining true to herself, taking no short cuts, becoming stronger than fear, and leading from within.
Dana’s passion is to help women create positive change in their lives to be extraordinary.
Dana has a Masters Degree in Public Health, a Bachelors Degree in Social Work and is a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF). She worked with international training and leadership development programs for the Peace Corps for nearly 15 years, coaching and mentoring individuals and groups from different cultural and economic backgrounds.
Born and raised in New York, Dana embarked on her transformational journey as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ecuador, South America shortly after graduating from college. She began her time in Ecuador living 2+ years in an impoverished village located in the northern Andes where she worked with indigenous girls and women (Warmis) in leadership, wellness/health, and small business development projects.
Dana later went on to serve in South America working in program development, which included project design and evaluation for the U.S. government. She supervised Peace Corps volunteers and employees and worked in senior management positions in the international development service sector in Latin America.
Dana now serves as the Deputy Regional Director with a U.S. government organization in Denver, Colorado. In her current position, Dana oversees the service leadership training of volunteers and project development, partnerships, and evaluation for the eight states in the Southwest region.
Through her years of purposeful wandering, Dana’s life has been her classroom. She is a bilingual, bicultural, independent Warmi, woman, wife, daughter, sister, friend, adventure enthusiast, mountaineer and triathlete with a strong case of wanderlust. Now, she shares her lessons learned to help women live extraordinary lives.
