Dana Uchto

Owner and Creator

Before I started my company, I spent more than two decades working as a full-time childcare provider, a babysitter, and a summer camp canceler. In that time I gathered a lot of experience working with children of various ages, from newborn to school age. My experience of working with so many families, and first-time moms especially, pushed me towards becoming a postpartum doula. I’m currently in the procces of attending a course to become one! 

As much as I love running Project Date Night – still my favorite part of what we do is spending time with children. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly kids change, grow and learn. No one could ever make me laugh as hard as toddlers and their logic. And for that reason – I simply love my job.

My education is in the medical field – I graduated college in my native country, Poland. I have a degree in Medical Laboratory Since. I also hold a certificate in UI/UX design and also design WordPress-based websites. My biggest hobbies are photography – black and white film to be more specific, hiking, cooking, and furniture restoration projects. In my free time, I like to read books, go for a run or swim, or visit museums and exhibitions.

I also lead a very green lifestyle – I run a zero-waste household – which is a huge and very important part of my life. There is no planet B – we have to take care of what we have so our kids and grandkids have a place to live. Living zero-waste is way easier than most people think and has a lot of perks – saving money, and staying healthy are just the most important ones. As my favorite business blogger says – there is no change without change and we all have to start somewhere. The important thing is to try. Today it might be just remembering to bring your own water bottle and who knows, tomorrow you might be working on getting solar panels to every school or making composting in New York City and NY state mandatory for all households and businesses. The more educated we are about climate change the more we can actually change in our daily lives and society as a whole!
