One of the many amenities that Bryson has to offer is our Lifestyle Director, someone who is always planning community fun to bring the neighborhood closer together. From live music to outdoor movie nights and cooking lessons to yoga on the lawn, there is always something happening at Bryson for you to enjoy. It's our way of bringing families together and connecting neighbors to each other. 



Dana Thomas, the CCMC Lifestyle Director for The GrovesMeet Dana Thomas, the CCMC Lifestyle Director for Bryson. Dana’s focus is on delivering the Austin flavor of lifestyle to residents by creating fun activities that will build a strong sense of community among neighbors of all ages.  Her passion is to make people smile and feel connected.
Originally from Michigan, Dana found her way to Texas after accepting a six-month internship during her last semester at Central Michigan University. “I fell in love with the state of Texas --- especially the weather and the people,” she explains. After that, she decided to plant her roots here! Dana holds a Bachelor of Arts in Commercial Recreation and Facility Management from Central Michigan University, with a minor in Event Planning.  “Dana’s country club experience and passion for exceptional customer service made her the perfect fit for Bryson,” says corporate lifestyle director Debra Wyatte.  Dana has worked in the recreation and hospitality industry for almost a decade.

Dana is active in her community networking with the Leander Chamber of Commerce, organizer for local Austin Meetups, and involved in the Leander Small Business Professionals Group. Her favorite quote is by Anatole France, “To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also DREAM; not only plan, but also BELIEVE.”

As our Lifestyle Director, Dana has already implemented some great social gatherings for prospects and residents.  She has brought smiles to people’s faces with the events she plans. With several events planned throughout the year, it keeps the residents actively involved making unforgettable memories.
