I absolutely love to travel. After college, I backpacked around Europe by myself for 12 days. I visited Italy, Amsterdam, and Prague. Prague is my favorite European city. I recently visited Alaska, which was awesome! The photo of me to the right in broad daylight was taken at 1:30 a.m., the days were 22 hours long.

A Day in the Life: Danielle Laffey 1What is your favorite memory from working at Silverline?

My favorite memory took place at the summit last year. We got up really early in the morning one day and went ATV driving. I was terrified to actually drive, and initially got in the car with a coworker. However, she didn’t know how to drive and our car was broken, so I had to get into a new car with Brad Killam. He eventually convinced me to drive and I had an absolute blast. 

What do you hope for your future at Silverline?

I hope that I continue to grow and learn at the same pace that I have been, which is pretty rapid.

What advice would you give someone considering a job at Silverline?
