Danielle is Civic Hall’s Membership and Welcome Desk Associate. She recently completed her M.A in International Relations at CUNY City College and has a B.A in Political Science and Russian and Eastern European Studies from SUNY Binghamton. She joins the Civic Hall community directly from the New York City Economic Development Corporation where she researched the impact of disruptive technologies, such as blockchain, artificial intelligence and quantum computing, on NYC’s economy. She is excited about the opportunity to finally work in the industry that she has only read about and looks forward to meeting the entire Civic Hall community. Danielle has previously worked in the diverse fields of international affairs and primary school education, which have given her a wide range of experiences and some interesting stories. In her free time, she enjoys cooking (and eating), traveling, drinking craft beer on rooftops, exploring cool NYC neighborhoods, and watching superhero movies and T.V. shows.
