Staff Spotlight: Danielle Spahn, Contracts and Grants Analyst

Danielle Spahn came to UCSB from the County of Santa Barbara where she worked for eight years as a Contracts Analyst, responsible for contract negotiation, sub-award monitoring, and contract development. 

Earlier, after graduating from Fresno State with a BS in Food Science, Danielle worked for a year in Washington, DC at the Institute of Food Technologists. Shifting gears, she completed a Masters of Public Administration and interned at the City of Coronado for two years before moving to Santa Barbara. 

When she's not working on grant applications and fiscal processes for our department, Danielle enjoys exploring Santa Barbara with her six-year-old daughter Paetra and two-year-old son Marcel.
