About Dana

Dana and Gus GrubbDana Grubb is a 43 year Texas native currently residing in Austin, Texas.  She is the mother of two college students, Alexandria, age 22 and Colin, age 20.  Alex is currently attending the University of Houston and Colin is currently attending Texas A&M University. 

Growing up in Texas, and spending her teenage years in the Austin area solidified Dana's love of the Texas Hill Country.  She spent three years at Texas A&M University, and then moved to the Houston area where she worked for many years in various sales positions and raised her children.

She ran into her husband, Gus, in 2009 while crashing his 20th high school reunion in Austin.  They had met once in high school but had not seen each other in 19 years.  Gus came over to say hello and he even remembered her name after all those years!  "She made a lasting impression" says Gus.  They became good friends and Dana began to visit the Austin area more and more often.  She and Gus began dating in 2013 and were married in April 2014, overlooking Lake Travis at sunset.

In 2015, Dana and Gus moved back to the Austin area, where Dana created Extraordinary Events by Dana.  She has always had a love for planning and organizing social events. "After many years of being the designated "social coordinator" for my group of friends, and helping to plan and organize a 20 year high school reunion, two benefits for friends, my in-law's Fiftieth Anniversary and my own Wedding Day, I realized that I had found my true passion."

Today, Dana alternates her days planning, working with Crave Catering as a catering coordinator and going back to school.  She will graduate from Texas A&M in May 2017. "It's never too late to finish what you started".
