Dr. Dana Corriel is an internist turned entrepreneur, digital designer, and consultant.
Dana (pronounced dah-nah) got her start in the digital world as a casual blogger, pushing past traditional standards that were accepted at the time for doctors. She founded a little-known startup called SoMeDocs, a few years before pivoting from clinical practice, and now runs the entire venture.
“It’s been a few years of literally being glued to my sofa seat,” she says of the adventure she spends days and nights fueling, from building out the website you’re on, to the social platforms, to interactive communities she regularly fuels. “My living room sofa literally has a dent in it, from my tush. But I’m proud of that dent because it represents so much of my hard work and dedication to helping doctors get the word out on their work.”
She hopes that more professionals consider sharing online, in whatever way, shape, or form they wish, and continues to work broadly with professionals and non-professionals alike, in building effective online brands and content.
