Dana Gerber is the Business Producer for the Boston Globe, where she helps oversee the section's digital presence and covers a range of topics — from developments in the local media landscape, to Gen Z workplace attitudes, to the financial toll of Long COVID, to the joys of Allston Christmas. As the section producer, she refines Business content for optimal digital reach, promotes it on all social platforms, and works with reporters and editors to devise innovative presentation strategies.
Prior to joining the Business section in 2022, Dana spent a year as a co-op on the Globe's Living/Arts desk, where she chased stories on a quirky Vermont museum, a Boston Common sketch artist, and a Somerville neon sign maker. Her writing has also appeared in the Dallas Morning News, Boston Magazine, Bethesda Magazine, Cosmopolitan, and Mic.
She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Emerson College in 2022 with a degree in Writing, Literature & Publishing. At Emerson, she held leadership positions at the campus newspaper, The Berkeley Beacon, and developed a love for Mike's Pastries, movies at the Coolidge, and long rides on the Green Line.
