Danielle's love of travel began when she studied abroad in Barcelona and got to immerse herself in both the Spanish culture and travel around Europe.
After graduating she got her first job as an Assistant Account Executive at a marketing agency in New York. Despite liking her new job she couldn't help but feel a strong pull back to travel. She went with her gut feeling and decided to put her career on hold to embark on an epic year-and-a-half long adventure around the world. She visited Africa, Southeast Asia, New Zealand and eventually landed in Australia, where she spent a year working and traveling around the country.
Prior to joining Audley, she took to the seas for a month-long sailing trip around the Mediterranean — and can now tie a mean bowline knot. After returning, Danielle was lucky enough to visit Australia once more, this time with Audley.

I'll never forget when…
My most memorable travel moment in Australia was when I was lucky enough to experience New Year's Eve fireworks on a boat in Sydney Harbour. While I was living in Australia, I was working at a jetboating company that was doing cruises around the Harbour for the annual fireworks show. There was an extra spot on one of the boats, and a last minute call asked if I wanted to come. I excitedly accepted without hesitation; it turned out to be an unforgettable night. The boats were small and we were able to weave in and out of all the larger yachts — which meant a front row view of the fireworks. Watching the show with the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House in the background was a special moment.
