Before Danila became the Director of Admissions and Outreach, she was one of Fusion Academy’s Spanish teachers and the World Language Department Head. She earned her Bachelor of arts in Political Sciences at UCLA and her Certificate in Spanish Interpretation and Translation at UCLA Extension. Danila learned Spanish while growing up in Argentia and has been bilingual most of her life. Before joining Fusion Academy, Danila was immersed in broadcast and digital media in Los Angeles where she often used her Spanish fluency. Danila’s media experience includes local news reporting and producing, launching E! Entertainment Television, and creating digital content for HBO.
Danila and her husband, Mike, raised their two children in Hermosa Beach, and their son Ryan is a 2013 graduate of Fusion Academy. Having seen the life changing impact Fusion had on her son, Danila was excited to start working at Fusion to help students succeed academically, emotionally and socially, as well as serve the South Bay Community. During her free time Danila enjoys listening to podcasts, swimming and practicing yoga.
