Danielle D'Amato, Secretary - theTurtleRoom

Danielle D’Amato serves as Secretary on theTurtleRoom’s board and is a biologist in Jacksonville Florida. Danielle’s passion for reptiles and amphibians started at a young age. Growing up in upstate NY she was often playing in the woods flipping rocks looking for salamanders and playing in streams looking for frogs along the water’s edge. She obtained her first field guide from a garage sale at 10 and has never looked back.

She works for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District as a biologist. Danielle served in the NAVY for 8 years as a Culinary Specialist and has also worked as an Adjunct Professor of Biology for Jacksonville University.

Danielle has a strong passion for the outdoors, conservation, and species habitat research, both terrestrial and aquatic.
