2016 Membership Spotlight: Dana Lalevee

What is your name?
Dana Lalevee

Why did you get into the music industry?
Music has always been a part of my life in some capacity. I was always in choirs and plays, and took piano lessons for 10 years. Music seemed like a natural career path. I’ve also always been a “behind the scenes” kind of gal, so working FOR the people who are the creators felt like the direction for me. It’s fulfilling to be able to help artists continue their craft in any way possible.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I’m very proud of being elected President of the WMBA. Some days I still wake up and think “I’m President, how neat?!” I’ve been involved with our group for four years now, so taking on a leadership role like this is very much a huge accomplishment in my eyes.

What are you looking to learn from WMBA?
This year I’m looking to learn more of what it takes to be an effective leader, to learn more about all of our new members, and to learn the ways each of you want to take our group to a new level in our community!

Where do you see yourself in five years?
Anywhere with a bulldog 😉

What was the first album you ever purchased?
The first CD I remember buying was Toni Braxton’s “Secrets.”

What is your favorite book?
Animal Farm by George Orwell.

What is your favorite movie?
This is a toughie. I know the movie Twister verbatim, so I suppose that counts for something.

What song is always stuck in your head?
It never seems to be the same, but my alarm is the opening riff to “You Make My Dreams Come True” by Hall and Oates, so I start most mornings with that on the brain!

What’s one item we could always find in your fridge?

At the moment, cheese. The low carb/high fat lifestyle has me reaching for a lot of cheese.

Where is your favorite place in the world?
Anywhere my family is – I have two nieces and a nephew that light up my life. Getting to visit them 2x a year isn’t nearly enough!

What’s something surprising about you?
I can paint and draw. It doesn’t happen as often as I would like anymore, but I have an artsy side!
