Hey you!

I'm Dana

It's nice to meet you

creativity is intelligence having fun

I've always been that creative person...


You know, the one who was always picked last for sports, but always picked first to be the lead in the school play? Well that was me, my friends! (Seriously, nobody wanted me on their team in gym class). Growing up, I spent all my time writing, reading trying my hand at anything creative.

So it makes sense that when it came time for me to settle into some kind of career, I chose the most creative option I could: marketing.

Originally from Cowtown (aka Calgary, Canada) I'm a full-time blogger who now lives all over Europe (currently working from Frankfurt) with my professional-hockey-playing-husband.

Dana Nicole Designs Inc. was born when my husband got transferred overseas and I needed to create something meaningful for myself. I started out as a freelance designer but quickly fell inlove with social media and content marketing. I now run two blogs and help small business owners understand how they can use social media and content marketing to propell their business.

Prior to opening up Dana Nicole Designs, I spent 10 years working in marketing ranging from positions within NHL teams to international power companies.

I wear many hats, but the main ones are the founder of Dana Nicole Designs, lover of tea, wife and crazy dog-mom.

Fun facts about myself:

  • I used to be the lead singer in a well-known Christian rock band
  • I was a professional cheerleader
  • I had my first (and only) poem published when I was 8 years old
  • I've performed for the Queen of England
