Dana Jolley


Dana Jolley was born and raised in Dallas, PA, and now resides in Harrisburg, PA. She attended Misericordia University where she graduated in 2017 with her Master’s degree in speech-language pathology. Dana currently works at the Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit in Early Intervention. She was involved with music at a young age, beginning with piano lessons and eventually learning to play the clarinet and alto clarinet, singing in the school chorus, and acting in on-stage productions in school and in the community. Dana took a step back from music in high school to pursue other interests. She found her way back to the arts and joined the PATAsphere in 2015. Dana brings a fun and positive energy to PATA that allows the performers to express themselves and take risks. She also is a spotlight aficionado. Dana loves PATA because it is a place where people can truly be themselves.
