Events are like a 1,000-piece puzzle — complex, layered, detailed, colorful — and each piece plays a significant role in the overall design. Nothing gives me more pride than putting all the pieces together and watching a successful event unfold.

Since joining Castle in 2005, I have planned a myriad of unique incentives, powerful meetings and stylish special events all over the world — from Peoria to Prague. I am a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) responsible for creating event-based strategies, managing teams, and executing innovative events for a vast range of clients. I keep up with the trends through continued education, relationships with industry professionals, and participation in trade associations including Meeting Professionals International, The Convention Industry Council and Professional Convention Management Association. I have an overall passion for planning and enjoy how the logistics of an event drive my mind while the creative aspect feeds my soul.

When I am not checking boxes off my to-do list (my favorite thing to do), I am co-chairing the event committee at The Food Project, a non-profit organization empowering youth leaders to create personal and social change through sustainable agriculture. At home, I love to cook and explore new restaurants, spend time with my family and get lost in a great book.

Danielle has the Sustainable Event Professional Certificate (SEPC) through the EIC.
