Danielle was raised in a small town in Northern Ontario. She is fluently bilingual and grew up hunting and fishing and spending a lot of time doing outdoor activities, which led her to the mining industry. She’s always liked mathematics and the challenge of determining how things work, which drew her to engineering.
Danielle graduated from Queen’s University with a bachelor’s degree (B.Sc.E.) in Mining Engineering with Mechanical option. While there, she played with the Varsity Curling Team. In 2017, she completed her Master’s in Engineering (M.Eng.) in Mechanical Engineering, also at Queen’s University.
She is currently a Reliability Engineer-in-Training, at Detour Gold. The prime purpose of the Reliability Engineer position is to identify the pro-active maintenance requirements for equipment to increase productivity and maximize reliability performance in a sustainable way, and to capture all opportunities to improve processes while reducing total cost. She is a registered Engineer-in-Training with Professional Engineers Ontario and plans to keep learning and exploring the field of reliability and maintenance excellence.
