Boasting a remarkable nine-year career in sport, Dana Moffat has left an indelible mark on professional rowing. Her journey to excellence culminated in becoming a World Champion in September 2018 when she secured a gold medal in the Women's 8+ at the World Rowing Championships.


Dana added to her podium prestige in September 2019, clinching a bronze medal in the Women's 8+. Her collegiate achievements are equally impressive, with NCAA National Champion titles falling in May 2016 and 2018, when she earned gold medals in the Varsity 8+ and Second Varsity 8+, respectively.


Her dominance extended to the Pac-12 Rowing Championships in May 2019, where she claimed gold in the Varsity 8+. Dana Moffat's legacy as a decorated athlete is a testament to her dedication, skill, and unwavering commitment to the pursuit of excellence in the boat.


Dana holds a BA in Economics from the University of California, Berkley.
