Director of Development
Daniela has over 10 years of experience working with a Non-Profit Organization. She has been passionately advocating for the Pro-Life movement for several years. She has been involved in faith ministry for 9 years throughout the Diocese of Austin serving as a Guide for the Prayer and Life Workshops. She has been a member of various ministries on a parish level such as Catholic Young Adults, Evangelization and just recently added on as volunteer for Marriage Prep and Religious Education. The work experience she has acquired for over 20 years will bring innovative ideas to the Coalition for Life as well as bridge any gaps between the various diverse cultures having the same common goal: to pray for the end of abortion.
Daniela enjoys serving God by praying in community with friends and family. She loves to travel the world alongside her husband to make many memories together. She is excited to join the Coalition for Life and work alongside the many prayer warriors who dedicate themselves to save the lives of the unborn by restoring the dignity of life being a witness of the Pro-Life Mission.
