Danielle Bedard

Membership

Danielle has enjoyed volunteering and being a part of so many of the wonderful programs and events at Division Street (along with her event- and arts-loving daughter). As a native Blue Streak, cultivating a strong Saratoga Springs and Division Street community are very important. This will be Danielle’s third year on the PTA board.

Danielle has a degree in Psychology & Complex Organizations from Mount Holyoke College and a background in communications, education & development, and healthcare. Danielle has been back in Saratoga and working in healthcare communications since 2002, so her commitment and desire to continue to make this a great place to live, learn, work, and play runs very deep!

Danielle is a certified youth yoga instructor, loves traveling and exploring, embraces celebrating anything with a good theme, and rarely passes on a game night.

Danielle’s mantra: work hard, be kind, do the right thing.
