Danielle is a 23 year-old Canadian who has a degree in Criminology and Psychology from Carleton University.After graduating from university, Danielle landed the dream job working for the government as a research analyst.

A few months into the job, she started dreading going into the office. She felt trapped by the monotony of doing the same work every single day and quickly realized this ‘dream job’ was someone else’s dream.

She made a bold decision.She quit her government job and returned to bartending while she applied to grad school and figured out her next step. Danielle was accepted to study Clinical Psychology. Everything and everyone in her life was telling her this was the right move, but something felt off.

She declined her offer to go and moved back home with her parents.“I had quit both my well paying government job and graduate school, everyone in my life thought I was crazy and told me I had made the biggest mistake of my life. But somehow I knew that if I didn’t quit at that moment, then I never would. Looking back it was the best decision I’ve ever made.”

Danielle found a job at a local brewery and slowly worked her way through the company to event management and marketing. Knowing this wasn’t what she wanted to do forever, she continued to search for more options.That’s when she stumbled upon Edumadic.

“It was the perfect combination for learning a new skill, Digital Marketing, while traveling the world, meeting new people, and gaining a larger perspective on life outside of government jobs, higher education, and craft beer.”

When she isn’t working on her online skills, you can catch Danielle on a morning run, hunting down the best smoothie bowls on the island, and getting competitive in a game of Euchre.
