Interim Executive Director
Born in New Iberia, Louisiana , Danielle Walker moved to Almost Heaven West Virginia in 2010. Inspired and motivated by her mother, Derbie Bernard, and her two kings, Demetry and Devin Walker, Danielle stands up and speaks out for all Mountaineers.
Danielle claims West Virginia is her second chance state and it shows through her public service. Becoming a homeowner of a safe, affordable home through Mon Valley Habitat for Humanity helped her family find their space and place in their community. Being an active member of Morgantown Kingwood NAACP, Morgantown NOW, Mountaineers for Progress, WV Working Families Party and other allied groups are just a few of the ways Danielle supports her community. As a board member of Read Aloud, MAYSP, and Northern West Virginia Center for Independent Living, Danielle helps these excellent organizations serve our community.
Danielle is a community advocate and activist for equality and justice for ALL. She never meets a stranger without sharing her first message of One Love promoting unity, inclusion, and progress.
Despite juggling the many responsibilities that come with being a widow, working mother of two disabled sons, community advocate, volunteer, and mother of the movement, Danielle does the work to live up to her value that “Words without Works are a Waste”.
Danielle is the recipient of the Power of One award, Wonder Woman of West Virginia award, and The Campaign to Keep Guns off Campus honoree.
First elected to the WV House of Delegates in 2018 to represent District 51 (Monongalia County), Danielle is running for a second term in 2020 to continue working for policies that help all West Virginians.
