Danielle is a member of SHAPE Colorado, SHAPE America, and the CDE APE Advisory Council. She is also active on the national scene both attending and presenting at the National Adapted PE Conference (NAPEC) and for the National Consortium of Physical Education for Individuals with Disabilities.

Fundraising and grant writing does not have to be an overwhelming experience. This professional development will provide participants with knowledge gained from firsthand experiences of an adapted physical educator working in the field. Danielle has raised over $130,000 (financial and in-kind contributions) in 8 years. This learning opportunity will include a fillable document for future project planning with work time.
