Dani McLeod

Associate Communications Officer

Dani’s move to the Foundation was an intentional career change. After years in financial services, she was pulled toward work that felt more connected to her community. At the Foundation since 2015, she has been able to live out her personal commitment to the people of Colorado.

In her role as Associate Communications Officer Dani supports the team’s community engagement activities, including convening, listening, learning and marketing. Dani’s skills in systems and project management come in handy for the numerous virtual and in-person events she assists in planning for the Foundation each year.

In her role, Dani travels the state several times a year. It is a real highlight of her job to get to meet people and see corners of our state that she might not otherwise. She also finds her work to be meaningful and dynamic – no two days are ever the same.

Dani’s healthiest habit is making a point to spend some time outside almost every day. As a lifelong vegetarian, she also eats a lot of vegetables.

An avid walker since childhood, Dani loves exploring Denver’s city streets and our state’s mountain trails on foot. When not pursuing outdoor adventures, Dani can be found doing yoga, Sudoku puzzles (the easy ones!), or curled up on the couch with a cat and a book.

"Everyone deserves the opportunity to live their best life."
