Hailing from the Waikato, Danielle joined the Maxim Institute research team in 2016 after completing a MSc in Political Science from Leiden University in the Netherlands. Danielle has produced research on overcoming the barriers to employment for people with disabilities, the role of Government and society in protecting the freedoms of our society, as well as leading our research on the End of Life Choice Act, and the Abortion Legislation Bill.
Currently working on end of life care, Danielle is considering how we best ensure that there is sufficient access and funding for all New Zealanders and their families to the best possible care and support at the end of life.
