Danielle is a Director of Open Food Network Australia. She has spent most of her career working in the technology sector, starting out as a coder way back when Netscape was a thing and then moving into managing products and teams in organisations of all different shapes and sizes.
She has extensive experience helping to form and scale organisations, using lean, agile, and product practices honed within the software world to help all kinds of businesses, be they online start ups through to more traditional corporations.
She joined the team as a volunteer back in 2015, after finishing a masters in environment and planning alongside of completing a Permaculture Design and Urban Farming course at Ceres in Brunswick, Victoria. Since then she has played an integral role in setting up the global software team, and in helping to build the organisation both globally and locally here in Australia to what it has now become.
She works across a number of different projects with the team in Australia, providing expertise and guidance in design and delivery. She also consults with local partners such as Ceres Fair Food to help shape their strategic planning and delivery approaches, and runs workshops to teach those in the food system the practices that will help them improve how they run their businesses, reduce risk, and focus on the right things at the right time.
She is also a sustainable food advocate in her local area, shops with many of the producers on the Open Food Network in Australia, and attempts to live up to her Italian migrant heritage by growing food as well as her grandparents used to do.
