Dana Barrett – Director of Development

Dana Barrett is a home-grown Tennessean, Marine with her Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Middle Tennessee State University. The heart to serve her country and community has never stopped. She has served her country in the United States Marine Corp, local charities and minister throughout her life. Dana comes to ASC with over 10 years’ experience in the non-profit profession of development. With this experience and being a veteran, she plans to use it to help ASC to reach more children of our fallen veterans.

Our children and families are the dearest part of life to Dana. The compassion to fill the gaps in these children’s lives is the mission of ASC. It is remembering and never leaving behind those children whose parents have fallen for our country. As she loves to spend time with her family and kids outdoors, cooking out and watching sports, she can’t image growing up without a parent. Dana is excited to be a part of a bigger family with ASC.
