Danielle started volunteering as an administrative assistant at United Way of Lethbridge and South Western Alberta in October 2016. In January 2017, she joined the United Way executive board as Secretary and also served on United Way’s Impact Committee and Allocations Committee.
Professionally, Danielle works as a Stakeholder Engagement Advisor with Alberta Seniors and Housing where she sees firsthand the need for programs and services that help to end the cycle of poverty. Danielle has an educational background in Neuroscience (University of Lethbridge, MSc, 2015) and deeply understands the importance of programs that support positive early developmental experiences for children and families.
Danielle is passionate about working with organizations that build stronger communities and support the most vulnerable populations. Danielle joined the United Way because she sees the difference that the organization’s support makes in the community and appreciates that United Way works hard to spread the love by funding a variety of different community organizations.
