  • Dana Pollan

  • Description: Dana Pollan carries on the family writing tradition with her first book—The Pollan Family Table. Dana’s coauthors are her mother, Corky Pollan, and sisters Tracy and Lori Pollan— and the forward is penned by Dana’s brother, bestselling author Michael Pollan.

    Dana has spent a lifetime focusing on health, fitness, and nutrition. She started her career in the industry 25 years ago as a cofounder of the Pollan-Austen Fitness Center, which became one of New York City’s top-rated exercise studios. While she was at Pollan-Austen, Dana and her co-owners created, produced, and appeared in a series of six exercise videos promoting aerobic exercise, flexibility, body toning, and strength training. Dana then moved on to her second career as a full-time mother. Today, Dana lives in New York City with her husband and their three children. Having her own family has allowed Dana to reconnect with her true lifetime passion—cooking and food.
