2015 Lowcountry Emerging Leader: Danielle Breidung

Meet Danielle.  

While other teenagers were dreaming of obtaining their driver’s licenses, Danielle was busy applying for her first grant. In actuality, her journey in the human services field began when she was eight years old! Always fascinated by other cultures, Danielle began studying Spanish in Kindergarten, and continued taking French and Spanish classes during the summer for four years in elementary school.

She read voraciously. She volunteered with 4-H. She involved herself heavily in athletics, student government, Future Problem Solving, Forensics, and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). She dreamed of traveling abroad. Fortunately, Danielle was selected to spend the summer between seventh and eighth grade in Australia as a People to People Student Ambassador and then eleventh grade in Argentina as an American Field Service exchange student (when and where she also organized a major school supply project).  

That was just the beginning of her wanderlust and fascination with human services.

Danielle has spent the past 19 years working (as a volunteer, board member, and AmeriCorps VISTA) within the nonprofit sector. In 2016, she turned her passion for community benefit work into a consulting business. She and Lowcountry Synergy are focused on connecting community benefit organizations with the human and financial capital they need to thrive.  

Lowcountry Synergy offers customized consulting services specifically designed to meet nonprofit and public organizations' needs!  Danielle is a creative problem solver and a go-getter.  If you are aware of an organization in need of assistance, Danielle can help brainstorm potential solutions and devise an action plan!

When Danielle isn’t working, volunteering, running, or practicing yoga, she travels the world. To date, she’s visited 72 countries on 6 continents.
