Director, Exploratory Career Community
In her role in the Center for Careers, Life and Service, Dani is excited to support exploratory students as they begin their professional, personal, and civic journeys. Her goal is for all students to feel empowered to continually explore their values, strengths, and interests, engage in intentional experiences, and build lasting connections within their communities.
Originally from central Illinois, Dani came to Grinnell from New York, where she most recently served as a public library director. Prior to that, she worked in various roles in student affairs at Indiana University Bloomington and Ithaca College and as an admissions reader at Cornell University.
Dani received her B.F.A. from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) and her M.S. from Oregon State University.
In addition to being an avid knitter and reader, Dani paints and watches too much TV when she isn’t spending time with her family, including her four children (two of whom are cats).
