Danielle Kennedy, Operations Manager

Danielle Kennedy
Operations Manager

Danielle is a recent transplant from San Diego, California, where she was born and raised. From a young age Danielle found freedom through the love of the arts as she found a place to express her vibrant imagination. Growing up she would create and put together plays and performances with the neighborhood kids, friends and family. Danielle’s knack for envisioning an experience and making it magical only expanded over the years while working alongside her Mother in her own catering business. Danielle eventually became a freelance event planner designing countless weddings, events, set designs and parties. These endeavors started off as side gigs while completing her Bachelors degree in Child Family Development and working as a preschool teacher, but quickly expanded her direction. Danielle is a natural born leader when it comes to creating experiences that last! As the President of her College Ministry at SDSU she managed and developed numerous teams of volunteers for on and off campus events. She worked at a multi-campus mega church in San Diego for 3+years, where she was the Global Outreach Coordinator, planning local and international service trips to reach the needs of partnering communities. 

When Danielle is not working you can typically find her hiking, finding the newest foodie spot with friends, listening to music or writing something new. As an artist herself Danielle has created murals for a few preschools, gained experience in video production and photography with local media organizations, and is a spoken word artist. She loves to travel and has been to 13 different countries, with Brazil being her favorite so far.

Danielle deeply cares for seeing this community flourish through the love of the arts and is excited to be a part of the Performing Arts Center team.
