Danielle graduated from King's College, Cambridge with a degree in Geography. She wrote her dissertation on micro-finance lending to small business owners in Washington D.C., examining the spatial pattern of lending. Danielle has worked for a variety of social impact organisations in the U.K. and U.S.A including The Samaritan Inns, a shelter for homeless, recovering drugs addicts; Policy in Practice, a welfare-delivery think tank; and the National Citizen Service, a government initiative which seeks to promote the social mixing of young people in London.
As the former Chair of Cambridge's social enterprise society, Danielle is passionate about entrepreneurship as a potential solution to community issues. She hopes to start her own social enterprise, tackling issues around structural discrimination in the legal system and the reintegration of ex-offenders into society. In her free time, Danielle loves camping, cooking, dancing and being outdoors.
