“Dana Che,” as she’s known to her audiences, is an inspirational speaker and Amazon best-selling author. Though she has always considered herself pro-life, Dana’s resolve was tested to the breaking point when she discovered she was pregnant at 17 years old. After many tears, good counsel and ultimately the grace of God, she and her then boyfriend made the courageous decision to parent. As former teen mom, she knows firsthand the fears and concerns a woman facing an unplanned pregnancy is going through, and has spent over 10 years working as an advocate for youth, women and families, including counseling those facing crisis pregnancies.
As a speaker, Dana encourages her audiences to turn their “messes into their messages.” She’s shared the stage with various notable people, including Dr. Alveda King (niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.), Eric Metaxes (prolific speaker and author of New York Times best seller BONHOEFFER) and Pam Tebow (motivational speaker and mom to NFL player Tim Tebow).
She reaches thousands of people on her YouTube channel alone and thousands more on other various social media platforms. Her debut book, The Choice That Changed Her Life, is receiving rave reviews and was listed as a best seller on Amazon. Her inspirational writings have been featured in several magazines, including Core Magazine, iFlourish and Live Living. Dana has also been a recurring guest on Rejoice Musical Soul Food and on The Christian Author’s Show.
But her most important job is her family. She shares her life with her husband and high school sweetheart, Shaun, their four amazing children and their “multi-cultural” dog, Cash in beautiful Virginia Beach, VA.
