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.
