Dana Lessard Garnett believes a family is capable of acknowledging and resolving issues that arise from interacting with each other when operating a business: differences of opinion, and differing visions and goals.
As a CPA, Dana understands how your family business operates. As a mediator, she reads the family dynamics and their impact on your family business operation. Dana works objectively with family issues - alongside the family's business advisors when needed - and facilitates family business dynamics using an evidenced-based skill set.
Dana's keen focus on family businesses stems from her early experience in public accounting as an auditor serving small to medium family businesses; and later, experiencing a series of life crises that led to emotional hardship and serious financial loss within her own family, which inspired her to become a mediator.
With a fervid interest in the neuroscience of conflict and family conflict, Dana is motivated and dedicated to work with families in business together who wish to truly resolve their issues for the sake of their business, and for the sake of their family.
Dana is currently based in Dallas, Texas, USA.
