Degrees and Certifications:
Danielle Van Nest
My name is Danielle Van Nest and I am the school social worker for 8th grade. This is my first year working in a school and I am loving it! I am originally from Bakersfield, California. I received my bachelor's degree in anthropology with a minor in music in 2011 from Cal State Bakersfield. I then moved to Lincoln, Nebraska where I got my first social work related job. I have always enjoyed working with youth of all ages and realized that I wanted to go back to school to get my master's degree in social work. I moved to Colorado in 2014 and received my master's degree from CSU in 2017. Most of my career has consisted of providing intensive in-home services for youth and their family members, which has taught me so much. I am passionate about building connections with people and helping them discover their own strengths.
Outside of school I like running, hiking, biking, skiing, and horseback riding. I also enjoy having down time to hang out with my husband and family.
