Dana Woods Paralegal
Originally from Jackson, Dana is now raising her son surrounded by the mountains that shaped her own youth. During her formative years, Dana danced with Dancers Workshop and was a member of the JHHS Interact Club. The club worked to fundraise and travel to Cambodia for a service trip. In Cambodia, the group hand built water-filters, delivered the filters to remote villages and met and worked with students in rural schools. This trip ignited a lifelong interest in both philanthropy and travel.
As an undergraduate, Dana volunteered with the Tipping Point at Westminster College. The group worked to provide services and supplies to individuals subjected to human trafficking. She studied and lived abroad in Zaragoza, Spain. She spent time traveling through Europe, Africa, Southeast Asia, and Australia. She volunteered with the IES Abroad non-profit organization. In Chiang Mai, Thailand, Dana worked with rescued elephants at a local Elephant Sanctuary.
Dana obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Education, with a Minor in Anthropology from Westminster College in 2018. Dana worked in the field of education, as an elementary and humanities teacher. She excelled in working with students from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds and with varied abilities.
Dana returned to Jackson in 2018 to be close to her family and community. Outside of work, Dana enjoys spending time in nature, camping and traveling with her son, and engaging in all types of creative expression such as, dance, literature and art. She is passionate about victim advocacy and social justice.
