Andrea “Danny” Folds serves as Earthjustice’s oceans lobbyist and contributes to the overall work of the Lands, Wildlife, and Oceans team in our Washington, D.C. office. Before joining us in D.C., Danny served as a law clerk at Centro de los Derechos del Migrante in Mexico City and as a legal intern at Friends of the Earth in Montreal, focusing on the human and animal health impacts of pesticides.

Danny is originally from Atlanta, Georgia, where she and her friends spent many great days swimming in the Chattahoochee and searching for nature in suburbia. On her way to Earthjustice, Danny received a B.A. in sustainable development from Columbia University, a master’s in theological studies from Vanderbilt Divinity School, and a J.D. from Vermont Law School, with a year in-between spent teaching in the Quaker oasis of Monteverde, Costa Rica.

Outside of work, Danny enjoys exploring churches, photographing trees, and practicing her French with anyone patient enough to suffer through it.
