Danna grew up in Bellingham, WA with a passion for science. It all started with observing polliwogs during backpacking trips as a kid and evolved to researching nudibranchs while getting her degree in marine biology at UC Santa Cruz. Danna followed her passion for science across the ocean, spending two years in Australia playing with fish in the GBR and kangaroos in the Outback while earning her Masters in Conservation Biology. After school, Danna followed in her family’s footsteps, moving into fundraising for the cause she is most passionate about- conservation, at the non-profit Forterra and is now the Corporate Relations Officer at the Seattle Aquarium. A true weekend warrior, Danna can be found anywhere in nature- diving, climbing, and hiking with her puppy, Huck, in tow.
