Dana Refling joined the staff as executive assistant in 2016. She provides support to the executive and deputy directors, and is responsible for board administration and the efficient functioning of the office through a range of administrative and financial tasks.
Holding an engineering degree from Duke University, Refling worked as a business analyst for a software development company for six years before leaving corporate America after the birth of her first child. Around the same time, her husband also left his career as an IT business consultant. In pursuit of a quality work-life balance, together they purchased an amateur golf tour in the Atlanta area. While continuing to enjoy operating a golf tour, she has yet to pick up the game, preferring to encourage golfers through their tales of birdies and bogeys.
Refling covets the time she has with her fearless husband who is always proposing new adventures. They spend much of their free time training up their three children as they develop academically, spiritually, physically and socially.
