Dana Davis - Secretary
Term Started: 2018
While growing up on a small ranch in Charlo, I attended St. Ignatius High school from where I graduated. I then attended college in Bozeman at Montana State University. After a short time, I married and moved to Ennis where I became a mom of two wonderful daughters and helped run a well-drilling business. In 2001, I moved to Butte to attend Montana Tech and that’s where I joined Glacier Bank, later transferring to Big Sky Western Bank in Bozeman. By 2015, I was looking for a change and a return to a smaller town atmosphere so I applied for an opening within the Glacier Bank System and was fortunate to be relocated to Chinook where I joined the team at First Bank of Montana as Deposit Operations Manager. I am so grateful that I had the unique opportunity to move to a small welcoming community and work with so many wonderful people.
