Dana McKenna is the writer of the weekly column “I Feel Like I’ve Forgotten Something” (reminddana.com). A playwright and essayist, she also writes for several regional magazines and newspaper. A book is in the works.
Mom of an Amazing Teenage Boy, and partner to The World's Most Interesting Man, she is currently owned by a big sweetheart of a dog and two medium sized, bossy cats. All together they call Chicagoland’s northwest ‘burbs “home.”
Raised in the theater; created her career in publishing and advertising in her 20s; married and had her son in her 30s (and was grateful to be a stay at home parent); in her 40s she divorced, chose her new last name, reinvented herself, and moved on!
In this new decade, Dana is rediscovering the things that make life work while bringing her joy, peace, love, and laughs and says “Bring on the next act!”
