Danell Norby

Danell Norby completed the MURP program in 2013 with a specialization in Community Development. After receiving her B.S. in Biology from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, Danell provided support and training to participants of workforce development programs as a member of AmeriCorps. Prior to moving to Portland for school, she spent three years assisting distressed homeowners as a NeighborWorks-certified foreclosure prevention counselor, teaching first-time homebuyer classes, and navigating the world of paper stacks and Excel spreadsheets that is HUD grantwriting and reporting. Danell is currently working with Oregon Health Authority to improve alignment of housing and health services throughout Oregon and serves as the student representative of TSUSP’s Diversity and Equity Committee. In her spare time, she enjoys getting out of the city to experience the beautiful Pacific Northwest, exploring her neighborhood by foot or bicycle, making a mess in the kitchen, and schooling Portlanders on the merits of her home base and favorite city, Minneapolis.
