Director of Community Connections 507.385.6662



Hi, my name is Danielle and I am the Director of Community Connections. Through my experience serving the United States Army Reserve and desire to have an impact on people, I discovered my passion for the community.  I truly love the area and am well aware of the community’s tourism amenities. I’m excited to showcase the unique and affordable destination options of the Mankato area to meeting planners and potential visitors.  On the weekends, my family and I enjoy spending time at Sibley Park; our kids love the farm play area, seeing the animals and having picnics admiring the flower gardens.

Danielle’s Favorite Mankato Find…..

“My favorite thing to do is walk, run or bike alongside the Minnesota River on the Red Jacket Trail. The trail offers miles of scenery, river crossings, picnic areas and parking at various fragments of the trail.”
