Before joining the team at Carnegie Prep, Dani spent a decade developing and directing youth arts education programming for schools, non-profit organizations, and community engagement initiatives. After graduating magna cum laude from Wagner College with a BA in Theatre Performance and Speech, Dani found her greatest joy in educating young people and fostering their creativity.
Dani’s work in arts education has included directing over 40 musicals for children ages 5-18, creating curriculum for numerous meaningful arts education programs including an anti-bullying musical for middle-schoolers, and facilitating a number of scholarship opportunities for underserved students in her community.  As the Director of Operations, Dani is both happy and grateful to be bringing her unique perspective, enthusiasm, and creativity to support Carnegie Prep’s students as they find their own voices and map out their futures.
