Danielle is an Associate Designer at FNI’s Michigan Studio. She graduated from the University of Michigan in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a minor in Urban Studies. Educational architecture was the focus of most of her studio projects, including her senior thesis. Previously, Danielle worked for the Community Development Advocates of Detroit and the City of Cleveland’s Community Development Office.
Danielle is passionate about architecture built with communities, not just for them, and which reflects the community’s cultural as well as educational priorities. The 21st century educational model of design is particularly exciting to her because it empowers students, reflects evolving educational practices, and provides communities with the spaces and opportunity to learn and grow.
