Administrative & Operations Assistant
Danielle was born and raised in Toronto and is a recent graduate of McGill University. She majored in Psychology, and minored in Behavioural Science and History. While at McGill, she was able to find her niche in neuropsychology. Through her degree, she was able to explore the wonders of the brain, and appreciate the large impact that mental health has on an individual. Danielle’s professional background has specifically focused on working one-on-one with individuals with special needs. This experience led her to pursue a Masters in Occupational Therapy.
Danielle’s desire to educate those around her inspired her to team up with NiaZamar: Redefining Beauty. She has worked within the healthcare profession supporting individuals with special needs and disabilities. She feels that her knowledge obligates her to educate and to be an advocate of healthcare, the inner workings (i.e. scientific basis) of mental health, and the importance of prioritizing mental health.
Danielle has grown up in a spiritual household, and it has always been a core part of her; it is where she is able to find her peace. She looks forward to mixing her scientific and practical knowledge in healthcare with spirituality. She feels that the blending of the two can pose a significant impact on the way in which we access healthcare.
Danielle hopes to run workshops with NiaZamar, to educate the community, as well as to be an agent of positive change.
