Danielle Atkins -
Land and Ladies
Danielle Atkins is a double dawg from the University of Georgia Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources with her BSFR in wildlife sciences (2012) and Master of Forest Resources (2013).
Working for the Georgia Forestry Commission, she witnessed the struggles women landowners often had when abruptly inheriting their forestlands. Danielle has worked with the nationally awarded Sustainable Forestry and Land Retention Program, and has been developing women-focused workshops since 2016.
Danielle is married and has three children: William, Elliott and Rea, and resides on 43 acres in Brunswick, Georgia.
Fun and weird facts:
Danielle has worked on a wildland firefighting handcrew on western fire assignments; accidentally let loose black bears during a volunteer zookeeping position (no worries, they were tracked back to their enclosures and sheriff’s office and animal control had a great time with this “incident”); was an avid crossfitter, and plans to return the local box.
