PhD in Environmental Toxicology and Risk Assessment
Dr. Danielle Reid is an Adjunct Professor in the College of Distance Education at Unity College. Sitting in an organic chemistry class, while in college, she found herself very much interested in the research discoveries explained by the professor. It was this defining moment that set Danielle on her professional career path in academia. She obtained her Bachelors in Chemistry degree, with a double minor in Biology and Spanish, from Xavier University of Louisiana. Following this, she spent a summer conducting research for a clinical trial in the Environmental Toxicology program at the UC Davis Genome Center. Eager to learn more about the field of Environmental Toxicology, Danielle transitioned to Tulane University where she received her Masters of Science in Public Health (MSPH) and PhD in Environmental Toxicology and Risk Assessment. During her tenure at Tulane, she spent several years unraveling the impact of the Gulf Oil Spill on workers exposed during the remediation efforts. She also spent time working in the field of Industrial Hygiene at the NASA Michoud Facility and on small research-based initiatives such as air sampling & monitoring for homes impacted by Hurricane Katrina. Danielle is the author and co-author of several peer-reviewed research journal articles in respected journals like Toxicology In Vitro and Gene Reports. Currently she enjoys mentoring budding professionals in the field of Environmental Health and Industrial Hygiene through teaching. She also owns a business called Science L.E.A.F that focuses on developing curricula content for major publishing companies, universities, and smaller organizations. Her husband and kids keep her busy but she enjoys every last bit of it. Testing out new cooking recipes and satisfying her creative mind through the arts are top list hobbies.
