Danielle is a first-generation college graduate from a low-income and rural background, a TRIO alumna, and an advocate for students from underrepresented and under supported backgrounds. After joining TRIO as a McNair Scholar at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, she earned her Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. She then taught and researched at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Mississippi State University. At Mississippi State, Danielle was an Assistant Professor of Philosophy and the Undergraduate Coordinator for philosophy majors. Her love for Upward Bound goes back to her time as a graduate student, when she worked as an academic and residential counselor and as a philosophy instructor for the Upward Bound program at Saint Francis University.
