Dana Griepentrog

Growing up with a natural affinity for water near Lake Michigan, Dana was resolved in kindergarten to grow up and become a swimming teacher/dolphin. That didnt happen, so shes happily working here instead!

Dana started lazily paddling a canoe with her family while camping at Crystal Lake in northern Wisconsin. However, her love for paddling began to burn a heck of a lot brighter when she studied abroad in Ireland at the University of Limerick. There, she joined an epic kayaking club that took her on whitewater trips to the kinds of places that open your eyes wide and make you tremble with joy. 

After graduating from UW-Eau Claire, Dana returned to Ireland to reside for a year working at a cafe and living by the sea. There, she learned to surf and went on her first overnight sea kayak trip past the Cliffs of Moher.

Now Dana has moved back to Wisconsin and hopes to start discovering her home state in a new light; by paddling its rivers and surfing its shores. 

Outside of paddling, Dana loves everything Irish (she was previously an Irish dancer for 12 years)...traveling...running...an array of music...and aspires to live in a tiny home on a piece of land   near some water, of course!
