Over the years she has coordinated events for people with AIDS, given Shiatsu treatments in a drug rehabilitation center and cooked for at risk youth. Later on, Dana managed a student program which helped people receive their legal rights, and also assisted in the production of TEDx Holyland.

In the effort to achieve a more just Israel, Dana was a significant activist for The Israeli Social Movement (The Tent Protest of 2011), coordinating many of the activities, strategies and interactions between individuals and groups. When the hundreds of thousands of protesters left the streets and their tents all over the country, Dana established 2 non-profit organizations with the mission of achieving social justice. To create her first organization, she partnered with Yonatan Levi, Alon-Lee Green and Stav Shaffir (current Member of the Knesset), and founded the second with Daphni Leef. Within this time, Dana also created and managed “The Lab -¬ Training Program for Social Change.”

Dana later completed her legal internship at ACRI, passed the Bar exam and became a VP of Financial and Business Development at the Heschel Center for Sustainability, heading the process of financial and organizational recovery. From 2015 until joining Marom Group, Dana was Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at the Shikun and Binui Group, where she built a system to efficiently manage and measure the group’s sustainability.
