Born and raised in the tropical city of Miami, Danielle’s love for the outdoors began through surfing, SUPing, and sea kayaking. She continued her education at the University of Central Florida where she received a B.S. in environmental studies and a minor in anthropology. In 2014 she moved out west to follow her passion for water and began raft guiding on the Arkansas River. Since then she has continued to explore mountains and rivers all over the world and share the experience with others. She recently came from Winter Park, CO where she taught adaptive skiing in the winter and led outdoor expeditions in the summer. She looks forward to leading trips with the Albuquerque Academy this year and spending quality time with the students in the outdoors.
