People

Dana Gould

Since the beginning of her career, Dana’s emphasis has been in historic preservation. Dana draws professional inspiration from finding new life for underutilized historic buildings through adaptive reuse, renovation and restoration. Dana enjoys that each historic building brings its own set of unique challenges, as well as boundless opportunities for new uses for the next generation of occupants. In her “free” time, Dana is chauffeur and lead cheerleader for her kids’ soccer and basketball games, tumbling classes and Girl Scouts.It’s not all about the after school grind though. Dana’s extended family has spent their annual family vacation over the last 10 years in Roatan, Honduras snorkeling and diving. Dana has also traveled to Ayutthaya, Thailand where she volunteered for the World Monuments Fund in leading a documentation and assessment workshop for a 17th century Buddhist monastery. After her role as “momager,” Dana hopes to work on her bucket list of worldwide travel and to learn how to play bridge.
