Dana joined The Piedmont Environmental Council in October 2018. She is serving as the Farm Manager at Roundabout Meadows Community Farm, where she is seeking to create a more inclusive, equitable food system in Loudoun County.

A native of Frederick County, Virginia, Dana grew up surrounded by agriculture and developed a passion for horticulture at a young age. Prior to joining PEC she worked in a variety of roles throughout the industry, from greenhouse production to orchard management, and every step in between. Most recently she worked for Virginia Tech as a Field Research Specialist where she managed peach, apple, and cherry orchards as well as vineyards.

Dana earned a Bachelors in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Colorado. After a transformative experience studying subsistence agriculture in Samoa, she went on to pursue a Masters in International Agriculture at Oklahoma State University. While at Oklahoma State she worked with a local food bank to develop a garden and production plan to supplement their programs.

She currently resides in Clarke County with her husband and their three dogs. She enjoys reading, growing far too many houseplants, and enjoying all of the natural resources Virginia has to offer.

Evan joined the Piedmont Environmental Council in July of 2018. He currently serves as a Loudoun Field Representative with the majority of his work focusing on various land use issues. Prior to PEC, Evan worked for a civil engineering firm as a Right of Way Manager overseeing utility easement acquisition on the Dominion Strategic Underground Project.

As a western Loudoun County native, specifically Round Hill, Evan spent his formative years exploring the natural areas of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah River near the Appalachian Trail. Extremely interested in safeguarding the unique environmental and historic characteristics of Loudoun County, Evan interned with the Land Trust of Virginia as a Conservation Stewardship Intern and the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation as a Land Conservation Management Intern to better understand land conservation practices and processes. Evan received his Bachelor of Arts Degree (Geography and Anthropology) from the University of Richmond.

In his spare time, Evan enjoys cross country running and reading historical non-fiction books.
