While working for Nike Women, Dana researched stories about health and wrote an article about Tai Chi. After writing the piece on Tai Chi, became more fascinated with Traditional Chinese Medicine. Later after breaking her foot, Dana healed her injury with acupuncture and herbs with the help of her father, a medical doctor and acupuncturist. This life changing experience led Dana to attend Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Dana was able to combine her two careers by publishing many articles for the magazine Try Acupuncture. She also published a book entitled Kosher Chinese Medicine, which connects Chinese Medicine to Judaism.
