As a child Dana endured the death of a parent, father in prison, dysfunctional environment of alcoholism, drug addiction, poverty, abuse, neglect, and was sexually abused by the age of 8. At 17, she was trafficked into exotic dancing through a local tanning salon, lasting over 7 years in strip clubs. Her first marriage to a male stripper/drug dealer ended with him at the gates of a prison. In pain, struggling & single parenting, the “Glamorous Life” derailed, de-escalating to a rapid halt, rock bottom. In January 1994, she had a Divine Appointment, a Divine rescue and SURRENDERED it ALL to Jesus! Finally, married a youth Pastor, Rocky Candillo, of 18 years, graduated college, and Founded the Lion’s Beauty Queens, Inc., a ministry outreaching to women in the sex industry throughout Kansas City, MO, KS & California serving 22 strip clubs monthly! She is extremely passionate about empowering women on their journey! Dana is a highly sought after speaker, invite her to speak at your next event.
