Dana Shaw was born and raised near Boston, Massachusetts. He began work in the Landscape industry before it was called the Green industry.
The allure of residential landscape enhancement projects matched well with his drive to create and inspire.
After achieving his horticulture degree from the University of New Hampshire, Dana relocated to Seattle, Washington. This move prompted a deep involvement in irrigation and storm water mediation. While there, he continued his professional and educational evolution in the landscape industry by achieving specialized credentials in urban green infrastructure, natural resource and water management.
In the years since, Dana relocated again to St. Louis, Missouri after completing a business degree in organizational leadership from Colorado State.
While in the Midwest he managed production operations with the largest landscape company in the U.S., facilitating roles in client relationship management, safety management, estimating and enhancement project management.
Now after 17 years of industry experience Dana brings his skills and energy to the Aspire team.
In his spare time he likes to travel, golf, hike, ski and generally be outside enjoying the world.
