Danielle prides herself on her strong work ethic and leadership skills. Initially considering law or medicine, she discovered a passion for engineering during high school, becoming the first in her family to apply to university. Graduating with First Class Honours in Chemical Engineering and specialising in Minerals Processing, Danielle stood out as the only female in her cohort.
After graduating, Danielle joined BHP where she embraced the challenges of FIFO work in the Pilbara. Despite being one of the few females in the industry, she excelled and completed the graduate program ahead of schedule, soon advancing into Production Coordinator and Reliability Superintendent roles. Her leadership drove efficiency and cost savings and achieved tangible operational improvements.
In January 2023, Danielle became Manager of Technical Stewardship and Governance and now leads a global team of engineers.
Danielle is passionate about promoting STEM careers to students, mentors young engineers within BHP and has chaired the Inclusion and Diversity Committee.
