She began working at Frost Valley YMCA in September 2017 as the Group and Family Retreats Director. Danielia heard wonderful things about Frost Valley and wanted to be a part of this unique facet of the Y movement. “No matter who you are, what stage of life you are in or what your interests are, Frost Valley has something to offer you,” she says. She enjoys being able to play a part in that by welcoming everyone, eliminating distractions for them, and overall, providing atmosphere and the opportunity to experience wonderment.
