Communications and Engagement Lead, SENVIC

Danielle brings a unique and perfect blend of community empowerment, technical wizardry, engagement expertise, and strategy smarts to her role as Communications and Engagement Lead. A life-long learner, she has an undergraduate degree in Anthropology and Linguistics and a Postgraduate Certificate in Arts (Development Studies). Recently she has focussed her passion for storytelling on obtaining a Master of Communication, through which she is investigating the transformational power of storytelling. She is looking forward to hearing your stories.

Danielle has worked as everything from a dishwasher, cleaner and sales assistant to writer, editor, IT guru and Communications Lead. Her love of people has seen her thrive in small businesses and corporate environments alike. She is a big picture thinker with a special interest in systems thinking as a problem solving tool in complex networks.

Her volunteer experience spans from community radio, to cloth nappy libraries, bike repairs, teaching English as a second language, writing and editing community newsletters, championing careers for girls and women in IT among others. Most recently she is extremely proud to be one of the founding members of a successful urban community garden.

A country girl at heart Danielle divides her life between her homes in South Gippsland and in the inner metropolitan East. She spends every second she can with her family and Kip the dog. She is also a wildlife carer who has been known to interrupt Zoom meetings with baby ringtail possums.
