About Danielle Conner

Hello there! I am the Programs Assistant at The Breast Cancer Charities of America. Working for BCCA has brought me much joy, knowing I can be a part of helping others who are in need. But outside of work, I am a fitness junky, food lovin’, sunshine addict, crazy cat lady, with a gypsy soul. I love to find new and creative workouts, snuggling with my fur baby Jax, spending a sunny day out in the water (accompanied with an adult beverage) soaking up some vitamin D, and traveling the world.
