A little bit about Danielle

Danielle’s big talent: eats tech for breakfast

Favourite superhero: Wonder Woman

Favourite quote: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.” – Albert Einstein

Danielle is our seasoned Chief Operating Officer with a rich background in communications and marketing, primarily within the nonprofit sector. Her academic journey in Journalism and New Media from St. Clair College laid the foundation for her innovative approach to marketing and operations management. In her current role, Danielle harnesses her extensive experience and creativity to drive operational excellence, enhance brand visibility, and foster strategic partnerships.

Danielle’s career is marked by her ability to lead multifaceted operations and her skill in leveraging technology to streamline processes and improve outcomes. Her past adventures have seen her orchestrating high-profile events featuring celebrities such as Chantal Kreviazuk, Clara Hughes, and Al Pacino, showcasing her adeptness at managing projects that require meticulous attention to detail and the ability to work under pressure.

A passionate advocate for literacy, Danielle’s dedication to Dyslexia Canada’s ‘Mark it Read’ campaign, as a committee member, stems from her son and husband. They inspire her daily with their strength and resilience as they navigate through their constant challenges. Her role as a Pillette Village BIA board member reflects her enthusiasm for community revitalization and her commitment to local growth.

Away from her professional obligations, Danielle is a technology enthusiast, always keen on exploring the latest digital tools and gadgets. She has 2 boys, is married to a chef and her pup, Penelope, can be found tagging along with her at the office (and really is her shadow). And if you visit the office, Penelope will greet you as the “Office Sheriff” and although Lady P is now deaf, when she smells or sees you she will definitely let everyone know (and give lots of kisses) When not in the office she can be found with a cup of coffee reading one of the novels from the pile of books she collects from book sales or hanging with her family.
