Danielle is a policy attorney at Children's Law Center. A recent graduate of Georgetown Law, Danielle joined the policy team after having worked for CLC as a policy law clerk during law school. As a law student she was a founding member and professional development chair of Georgetown Youth Advocates – an organization encouraging Georgetown Law students to take an active interest in the well-being of young people through internships in youth advocacy. Prior to law school, she taught 8th grade social studies in Louisville, Kentucky and English as a Foreign Language at the Federal University of Viçosa in Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil. These teaching experiences convinced Danielle to pursue law school in order to address policies that serve as barriers to student success in school and in life.
