Certified Financial Planner™ professional


2022 Selected as a Five Star Professional. The Five Star award recognizes wealth management professionals who provide quality services to their clients. 


After her search for a personal financial planner proved unsuccessful, Dana decided to pursue her degree in finance so she could manage her family’s finances. It wasn’t long before she fell in love with finance, and in 1992 she joined what was then Kramer Lothrop Financial Services. She helped grow our firm from a small three-person office into a 13-person wealth management firm. In 2000, she became an owner of the firm.

Due to her own quest for knowledge, Dana always makes sure that clients can attain the level of knowledge they need to accomplish what’s most important to them. Whether you want to know every detail about your investments and the markets or just enough to have a smart conversation about where you stand, Dana creates an environment at Birchwood where the most important information rises to the top and clients can always ask any question and get the answers they’re seeking.
