Danielle practically grew up at QajaqTC and over a dozen years later she is still coming back. She began her path as a mentor via the ACA and shortly after began paddling with a traditional paddle that she carved herself. It took a few more rounds of carving but now she rarely ever paddles with anything else. She is passionate about many aspects of traditional paddling, including ropes, rolling, and building. Her focus is on enjoying the experience and learning new things. She is happy to encourage you to try something new or different and will help you take your next step whatever that may be.
