Daniëlle is the VP of Finance of Paddle, a payments infrastructure for SaaS business.
Born in the Netherlands, she went on vacation to Aruba with her parents and never went back. She later moved to the US to live and complete her university. She completed two degrees simultaneously: a bachelor’s in International Community Development and a bachelor’s in Business Administration.
After university, Daniëlle spent 8 years working in the US Hospitality business across the Americas (North, Central, South & Caribbean).
