Unapologetic •Bold • Resilient
Dana Pharant understands her personal strength. And she has created a business that is all about social disruption. Through her work, Dana calls out traditional thought patterns and helps women everywhere embrace themselves in a very unique and, sometimes controversial way. While her company title certainly grabs the attention of many, her work focuses on pushing women out of their comfort zones and challenges their preconceived notions of what strength really is. Brilliantly, her work encourages women to fully accept who they truly are by embracing their inner dominatrix.
Sadly, Dana is a survivor of sexual abuse. As unusual as it sounds, Dana discovered the healing power of taking control in a very non-traditional way. It was through experimentation in the dungeon – the world of sexually submissive and dominant role play – that she found comfort. Bravely, Dana uncovered her ability to heal past sexual trauma through crafting altered outcomes to familiar situations. During this time in her life, Dana discovered that owning your power was incredibly beautiful.
