Danielle currently works as a landscape designer/project developer in Denver, CO. Her work on urban pollinator habitat will help seamlessly transform cities into pollinator havens without changing zoning or land use regulations. Her research and policy development ideas have been published in both local and international media and are supported by many professionals, including members of the Xerces Society and the USDA's Research Program. Danielle is also a public speaker and presents her research at various national design conferences, such as ASLA, AIA, APA, and SmartGrowth.
Her background in design, psychology, and entomology has positioned her to engage individuals from a wide range of professions to collaborate on ways to create a more sustainable future. She is currently working on Houston's sustainability action plan and new SITES initiatives that will include measures to save pollinators within the city.
She is also developing a game app to change contemporary stereotypes against bees and empower/teach kids and adults alike why the decline of pollinators is necessary for all of us to provide creative solutions to within our own environments.
