Danielle joined ForestEthics in mid 2014, bringing with her expertise in community engagement and digital strategy. She has over 15 years of experience building online/offline communities, executing creative campaigns and developing digital strategies around social media, SEO/SEM and web development. Growing up along the Albuquerque Bosque amongst the Piñon and Cottonwood trees inspired her lifetime dedication to climate change issues and the environment. The marriage of her artistic and technology talents stemmed from her education including a B.A. in Communications from the University of Missouri and a M.F.A. in Digital Media with an emphasis on green technology from the CADRE Laboratory for New Media at San Jose State University. Danielle is deeply involved in the San Francisco Bay Area arts community serving on the board Women Environmental Artists Directory (WEAD) and Emerging Arts Professionals leads marketing and communication efforts of both organizations.
After hours Danielle is an Alter Eco-Artist creating projects that bring together new media art, sustainability and community. You can also find her in the East Bay Regional forests hiking with her German Shepherd, Adama. Her curious nature frequently leads to an international adventure such as a survival trek through the Malaysian rainforest, or a foodie quest in Puebla, Mexico.
