Janice mentioned some changes in our world, and it is my pleasure to introduce our newest Account Executive & BESTIE Event Director, Dana Darley Daily. I met Dana during my first week with the VOICE on set of her cover shoot for the September Bourbon issue, and we instantly clicked. I may be biased, but Dana is as beautiful on the inside as on her exterior. She is dynamic, a true hustler and a loyal friend. I am ecstatic to link arms with her and continue to grow this publication to greater horizons.
