Danielle Puller
Operations Specialist

Danielle comes to Education First with more than 15 years professional experience supporting senior and C-level executives across numerous industries. In these roles she developed an extensive project management, executive support, and event planning skillset. As an Operations Specialist, Danielle partners with executive staff supporting the firm’s recruiting and hiring efforts. She directs onboarding activities for new employees, administers benefits, and manages technology assets.

Prior to joining Education First, Danielle was a Project Manager for the philanthropic division of a federal Bank in southern Oregon. She developed numerous events working closely with local non-profit organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club, Josephine Community Library, Four Way Foundation, and the local food bank. Through her experience with these organizations focused on the welfare of local youth, Danielle witnessed firsthand the value, or lack thereof, of education in a child’s development. This experience helped guide her to Education First, where she contributes on a larger scale to ensure every child, regardless of socio-economic or racial background, has access to a quality education.

Danielle is a world traveler who is fluent in several languages. At home in Southern Oregon she enjoys live music, hiking, river rafting, and exploring the wineries of the Applegate Valley.
