Danyelle Michelini, a.k.a Dee, is the Marketing Coordinator for TEC. She has been with TEC since summer of 2009, and her responsibilities include program/event marketing, working closely with student entrepreneurs, helping to facilitate TEC's many programs and activities and convincing the rest of the TEC staff that she isn't actually crazy - just pretending to be. She is also the interviewer for TEC’s television show Innovate at Illinois. What Danyelle loves most about TEC is meeting inspiring students who are inventing new technologies and working to change the world. According to her co-workers, if you have any questions about anything TEC related, she probably knows the answer.
Danyelle received her B.S. in Advertising from Illinois in 2010. While at the University, she was co-captain of the Women's Division I Track and Field Team where she threw discus, javelin and shot put.
Danyelle loves all things dealing with nutrition, fitness and health.
Fun fact: Danyelle carries her javelin in her car and swears it makes for a great party trick.
