As the local government affairs manager, Danielle builds bridges between WEC’s work and local government actions. Joining WEC in 2014, Danielle initially provided policy research and analysis for legislative efforts and accountability tools. She soon joined the People For Puget Sound team, where she focused on green infrastructure, clean water regulations, and orca recovery. Prior to joining WEC, Danielle gained experience in international and domestic environmental policy clerking for NOAA’s Alaska Regional Counsel and the International Environmental Law Project. She earned her B.A. from Western Washington University, her J.D. from Lewis & Clark Law School, and is a member of the Washington State Bar. Danielle spends her summers around a campfire with her pup, her falls rooting for the Packers, her winters in search of a good brass band, and her springs trying to figure out how to fly fish.
