Mason City, IA

Texas born, Iowa grown! Growing up in a land locked state, the closest she came to oceanic waves at home were the vast fields of corn and soybeans rustling in a summer breeze. Many times, she had to settle for exploring her backyard lake until her next rendezvous with the great big blue. This will be Daniella’s fourth year with the Sail Caribbean team! Her past positions with us include BVI Office Manager, Provisions Manager, and First Mate. Since our last operational summer, she’s graduated from the University of Iowa with a major in Communication Studies, a minor in International Relations, and a certificate in Event Planning! Prior to Sail Caribbean, Daniella worked as a camp counselor on Pearl Harbor Naval Base for Camp Adventure; a student run camp on American military bases and embassies worldwide serving children of the United States service men and women. Though she enjoyed spending her 2020 summer with her pup Snowball (who was SUPER excited to have his human home for the first summer in a while!), she’s looking forward to stretching out her sea-legs once again and voyaging with the students of our 2021 season!
