Throughout middle and high school, Danielle Johnson-Kutch’s favorite classes were those involving U.S. History and Government. Her long-standing interest transformed into a career path; during her junior year at Alfred University, she participated in the Washington Semester Program in Washington, D.C. While in D.C., Danielle interned for The Honorable Amo Houghton (R-NY) and participated in an American politics program. After experiencing the legislative and public policy process, Danielle felt compelled to return to Washington.
Equipped with a major in political science and minors in sociology and public law, Danielle graduated from A.U. eager to work and shape public policies. In 2009, she began working for the U.S. Department of the Treasury during America’s worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Over the past seven years, her work has had helped homeowners avoid foreclosure and stay in their homes.
“For me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing public policy in action and producing results for the greater good of the country.” –Danielle Johnson-Kutch
