Danielle joined Stand.earth in July 2020 as the Executive Assistant to our International Program Director.
Prior to Stand, Danielle worked in a variety of roles at Canada’s leading educational retreat center from Executive Assistant to the CEO, to managing logistics for groups and conferences. She started her career working for Canada’s largest adventure travel company where for a decade she led small group tours throughout South America, managed the Responsible Tourism department, and created an award-winning Foundation that developed and supported over 25 grassroots projects worldwide.
Danielle graduated from the University of Waterloo with a degree in Environmental Studies, participated in a year-long study abroad program in Ecuador, and wrote a thesis paper exploring the impact of the Oil Industry on Indigenous communities in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
Having lived, worked, studied, or volunteered on all seven continents, Danielle’s most memorable experiences were the years spent living and working with Indigenous communities in the Andes and the Amazon. She is delighted to now be part of an organization that is committed to working in solidarity with Indigenous peoples, frontline activists, communities, and organizations around the world to protect our beautiful planet.
