Dr. Danielle Butts


Dr. Danielle Butts holds a Doctoral degree in Education from Pepperdine University. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Deaf Studies and her Masters of Science in Counseling — both from California State University Northridge.

Her career began in education more than 20 years ago, and she has held various positions ranging from administration to counseling. Currently, Dr. Butts is the Director of the Transfer Center at College of the Canyons where she also counsels. As a strong advocate for student success, she teaches a course to guide students on just how to achieve it — a course that she developed for the institution. Considered by her to be a “rewarding field,” her greatest joy has been working with students in the at-risks populations.

Dr. Butts also operates a financial services business where she enjoys “coaching, teaching and educating people about money.” But she is just as well highly involved in her community, working with a number of other non-profits organizations, including the YMCA and her church. She volunteers many hours throughout the year coordinating events, participating in outreach, counseling, presenting, and also working with rescue missions and many other services. She plans to continue her volunteer activities until the day she is laid to rest.
