Danielle studied Anthropology at The Ohio State University and an interest in archaeology drew her to Utah. She overcompensates for a Midwestern upbringing by developing amateur competence in every single outdoor activity. Danielle was a prolific long-distance hiker but traded the rock n’ roll lifestyle for a golden retriever and a gear room in Salt Lake City. She still maxes out her vacation time on river and bike trips in Utah and intends to move back to the desert once the Covid remote workers go home.
