About Danielle

I was raised in Northern Virginia in the suburbs of Washington, DC. I attended Vassar College where I graduated with a BA in Music and a Minor in Women’s Studies. At Vassar, I served as a Dorm President, a member of the Vassar Student Association and Chair of the annual Founder’s Day celebration.

I drove cross-country to Los Angeles in 1998 and moved to Hollywood Hills West in late 2006. I’ve served you as HHWNC’s Transportation Chair for the last 2+ years and was recently elected President of my condominium’s Board of Directors. I am also a small business owner, providing e-commerce web design and consulting services to small and medium sized businesses.

I truly enjoy tackling problems in whatever setting I’m in, whether it’s dangerous cut-through traffic, helping my clients increase their sales or creating an annual budget for my HOA. I am both creative and practical, always seeking innovative compromises when there are competing ideas. I love streamlining complex processes and making meetings more productive to achieve real outcomes.

Since being elected to the neighborhood council in 2016, I’ve learned so much about your issues and priorities. Our area is so diverse – from the beautiful Hollywood Hills to the Walk of Fame to historic residential neighborhoods. Over the last few years, I’ve come to understand the distinct concerns of the various HHWNC communities and what types of solutions make sense to address them. What works in one area, may not work in another. But one thing unites us all – we want our voices to be heard by our elected representatives and city agencies.

I believe my most important job is to listen to you and amplify your voice. As a member of the Planning and Land Use Management (PLUM) Committee over the last two years, I focused on representing stakeholder priorities and working with developers to make the best projects possible for our neighborhood. I am running for Vice President to have a larger role in representing your voice and to continue the work I’ve done improving our community.

I am lucky to share my life with a wonderfully talented and supportive husband Matthew as well as my spunky Chihuahua Lucy. We enjoy attending the Love Street festival in Laurel Canyon near our home, where we snapped that photo in front of the stage.
