At United Way for Greater Austin, she managed a successful direct mail campaign, contributing to the team's record-setting fundraising totals among United Ways nationwide, for five consecutive years. From there, she joined National Instruments, a local, global software and hardware manufacturer, where she coordinated internal communications and community and academic relations programs, for six years.

Lana is a veteran of Desert Storm, serving in the U.S. air force, as an aeromedical evacuation specialist, instructor, and examiner, providing patient care on the C-130 Hercules aircraft. She spent most of her military career stationed at MacDill AFB, Florida, moving back to her home state of Texas, in 1995.

Lana is married, has one son, and a dog named Sweetie Boy. She enjoys hiking, mountain biking, camping and eating out with friends and family.
