Danielle was born and raised in North Vancouver, British Columbia. From a young age she spent the majority of her time playing in the natural surroundings of the North Shore mountains. This fuelled a passion for the environment leading her to later pursue a bachelor of science in natural resource conservation from the University of British Columbia. As an editor, she hopes to share her passion for the environmental movement with writers on the starfish team. She currently lives in Coquitlam, B.C. where she enjoys yoga, hiking, camping and biking.
