Dana joined Shannon & Wilson in 2017 and has since gained experience in residential well sampling for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS), groundwater monitoring, air sampling, field-screening for chlorinated solvents, product recovery, wetlands delineation, laboratory data review, work plan and report authorship, and GIS mapping. She has also assisted with a NEPA-driven Environmental Assessment involving wetlands delineations of a remote parcel of land off the road system in central Alaska.

Prior to joining Shannon & Wilson, Dana was a Park Ranger at Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge where she performed snowmachine-based lynx live-capture and immobilization and led public outreach programs. While earning her master’s degree in biology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Dana was a Research Assistant monitoring stream chemistry and hydrology for the Caribou-Poker Creeks LTER.
