“I have loved digging into concerns of research ethics as well as the process of finding the “story” in data and making it sing. As analysts, we are the bards and protectors of data and participants. Listening to and sharing findings (even when they’re not what I expected) is exhilarating and illuminating-I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it.”

SUPPORTING STUDENTS WITH SERVICES

Dani graduated in 2019 from Illinois State University with a BS in Sociology and minors in Anthropology and Women & Gender’s Studies. Immediately after graduation, Dani completed an AmeriCorps year of service with the higher education non-profit, College Possible. There she worked with first generation and marginalized students as they began and completed their undergraduate degrees. She now works in the Office of the Registrar at UW-Madison on the student services team. In this role she serves as university administrator for Minnesota reciprocity and Name in Use. Additionally, Dani takes great pride in her portfolio of knowledgebase documents that are designed to assist campus stakeholders while they navigate registrar processes.

FOSTERING A MORE UNDERSTANDING AND INDEPENDENT WORLD

Dani pursues her educational and vocational opportunities with one goal in mind: Who will she serve? She is motivated by the belief that collaboration is the key to securing the greatest good for all.  Dani believes that her love for design and resource collection/documentation is a skill for helping achieve and ensure learning outcomes and hopes to one day do so professionally as an instructional designer. When not studying or working, Dani volunteers with organizations such as The Red Cross, Lupus Foundation of America, and Literacy Network. She feels deeply that a good heart is the key to good research and this outlook is key to closing achievement gaps and fostering a more understanding and independent world.
