Alana attended Glass House Mountains State School from 1993 to 1998. After leaving primary school Alana attended Balmoral State High School.
Since leaving school Alana has married a former Beerwah State School boy Ashley Baartz and has had two children. Both of Alana's children attend Glass House Mountains State School.
Alana currently works for Queensland Rail and gets quite a laugh out of seeing staff members from her primary school days still working at the school.
