Dani is a member of the senior leadership team where she aids in Geneva Global’ s thought leadership strategy. As a member of the Human Resources team, she knows that caring for the company’s high-functioning staff members is rewarded with true employee engagement and better service outcomes to clients. Her first assignment at Geneva Global was international recruitment for Program Advisors for the Girls First Fund. She has enjoyed watching the team flourish in its first year.
Prior to Geneva Global, most of Dani’s career was in the healthcare sector at UMASS HealthAlliance Hospital, where she fostered culture transformation through innovation, LEAN Six Sigma Training, Idea Board Systems, Team Huddles, Project Management, and Employee Engagement Surveys. She still believes in the basics though – keeping the Human in Human Resources.
As a former champion figure skater, Dani knows it’s essential to be graceful in any endeavor for true success. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Regis College.
Who or what has inspired you to do the work that you do?
Sister Carole Lombard, CSJ, my late aunt, was deeply involved in anti-trafficking work. I think of her often as the team here at Geneva Global contributes to social justice issues each day.
What book, film or quote has shaped the way you think?
Watching Maya Angelou read excerpts from her book, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, was a gift. Maya presented her book at Regis College to an audience in awe. Her ability to transform adversity into grace and belonging always stuck with me. And, the bird singing of freedom. What an inspiration!
What’s an interesting fact that others would not know about you?
I was lucky to have spent 2.5 years a boarding school in the White Mountains. It gave me an opportunity to learn about students from all over the world and their customs. I studied hard and made good friends in a beautiful space.
What brings you joy?
My daughters, Emma and Bailey, are my true joy. They have grown into smart, sensible people, and I’m so proud of who they are becoming every day.
