Dayna Macari

TNP Project Coordinator

Dayna’s joins Positive Directions with a wealth of volunteer service in the Norwalk


Dayna owned and operated an organization service. She helped clients let go of

things—gently and without judgment—guiding them through the emotional journey

of donating and disposing of excess stuff. She took great pride in transforming the

lives and spaces of her clients. Dayna is also a dedicated volunteer, having served

for three years as an elementary school PTO President with a talent for fundraising.

Her efforts enabled teachers to add much-needed books, software, and school

supplies to their classrooms. She also held a four-year seat with the McMahon High

School PTO wear she volunteered and helped in many aspects of the high school.

Her other love was helping to run the McMahon football team for four years and

organized an annual golf tournament to help the football team afford uniforms and

transportation and many other needs.

When she is not volunteering and helping out in the community she works as an

Executive Administrator and Organizational Consultant, Dayna supervises Dr.

Manfredo Curtis’s (Manfredo Curtis Associates) calendar, a packed schedule that

includes advisory sessions with CEOs, consultations with MCA executive coaches,

and MCA HPT™ working sessions with l commitment to exceptional client service,

particularly her ability to anticipate a client need, makes her an indispensable

member of the MCA team.

Dayna specializes in organizing in-depth engagements for MCA. She ensures that

every possible need is taken care of so Dr. Manfredo Curtis and the client can focus

solely on their work. Dayna manages accommodations, event spaces, meeting

materials, menus, services, and transportation. Additionally, she is the liaison

between MCA and its technology consultants. Clients share that Dayna’s

professionalism, attention to detail, accessibility, and kindness make every phone

call and email exchange with her a pleasure.

Dayna is married to Rick, a love story that began when the two attended their high

school prom together. Their son, Michael, recently graduated from the University of

Tampa and has joined the Norwalk Police department. But you don’t truly know

Dayna until you have been spoiled by her cooking and hospitality.  Her specialties

are stuffed clams, manicotti, and spiedino alla Romana. If you’re lucky enough to

get an invitation to her table, bring your appetite and plan on staying to the wee
