I am so honored to have been chosen among this distinguished group of people for Connecticut Magazine's 2017 40 under 40.
Meet the best and brightest of Generation Next — people under the age of 40 who are excelling in their fields, leading and influencing others, and making a difference. You’ll find educators, business owners, musicians, artists, television personalities, social activists, movie stars and more, as nominated by friends, family, co-workers, admirers and Connecticut Magazine staff.
Danielle Beerli, 37 Bethany Social worker
Beerli has a background in education program development and administration, and in the past year founded Empower Her, a nonprofit community center offering local programming and “a place for women to be supported in their life paths as well as to open new doors and opportunities for girls and provide them with foundational prosocial and life skills,” Beerli writes. She says that in the last year she is also particularly proud of raising a family and homeschooling her children, at the same time as getting her nonprofit off the ground.
