Biography

My name is Dara Ladner. I am from a small town in Southern West Virginia, known as Peterstown, with a population of about 800 people. I was an ambitious student athlete at James Monroe High School and began my college career soon after graduation.

I originally started college at Bluefield State and shortly realized that wasn’t the right fit for me. After one year of general education classes, I transferred to Concord University and instantly felt like I was where I was supposed to be. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with my Bachelor of Arts in Advertising and Graphic Design in 2020.

After graduating with my bachelor’s degree, I did some freelance work until I found a full-time job. I began my career doing graphic design as a Creative Services Manager at my alma mater, Concord University in September of 2021. I plan to work towards my Master of Business Administration within the next couple years and look forward to seeing where that path leads me.

Education
