Ellsworth Community College

Ellsworth Equestrian Center


Dana began working for ECC as a student in 2011 while earning two Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degrees in Equine Science and Equine Management. In addition to her duties as Equine Facilities and Events Coordinator, she also serves as an adjunct instructor for the Equine program and is an active member of the ECC Band, which allows her to get to know more Ellsworth students, staff, and community members on a personal level. In her spare time, Dana enjoys spending time outdoors, teaching her pets useless tricks, and indulging in overly complicated home-cooked meals. Many of the ECC family know Dana as “Scout” – an homage to her favorite fictional character that began as a summer camp counselor nickname.
