Danni Gardner, MAMFT Student Intern
Danni is a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy student at Northcentral University. She holds a Master of Business Administration and spent her career in the field of finance in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. Helping people is a part of Danni’s culture, and changing careers was a natural progression.
Danni was born in Laos, and her family sought refuge from the war in America. Raised in Wisconsin, Danni’s journey took her to New Mexico for thirteen years and the Big Island in 2019. The pandemic was a reminder of how fragile life is, and Danni switched careers.
When Danni is not doing homework, she hangs out with her Ohana at the beach or off-roading. As a member of the Hilo Rotary Club, the community is everything. Danni volunteers in multiple capacities and cooks for the houseless weekly.
