Junior Board – Chapter Relations – Dana Harper
Supervisor, Finance & Accounting, Comcast

Dana Harper is currently a Supervisor on the Finance and Accounting team in the Comcast National Accounting Organization. In her almost 8 years at Comcast her responsibilities have included account analysis/account reconciliations (including centralized accruals), cultivating relationships with other business partners outside of Finance & Accounting, and volunteering for software user testing projects. She is very excited as her role has recently transitioned to include more of a technical flair in supporting the end users of accounting systems in the NAO. This includes maintaining the master General Ledger code mapping, implementing new teams into the account reconciliation tool, validating user access requests and hosting weekly/monthly status meetings. Additionally this role adds new International Payroll analysis responsibilities and business partner relationships. After joining WICT in 2012, she became a regular volunteer at events which proved to be a key stepping stone to her joining the WICT Board. She is originally from Connecticut, and has made her way to Philadelphia by way of primary school in Papua New Guinea, high school in Germany, and college in New York and Ohio. She and her husband currently live in Center City Philadelphia and are taking advantage of the different adventures the city has to offer. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, and is a humongous football fan – Go Eagles!!
