About Danielle Thompson-Ochoa, Ph.D.

Prior to arriving at Gallaudet University, I was a former School Counselor for Pre-K to Grade 12 in Honolulu, Hawai’i. I pursued my Ph.D. while working as a school counselor.  I am a National Certified School Counselor (NCSC) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC).  I also have K-12 School Counselor license in Virginia, Maryland, and Hawai’i. 

I am a native of Trinidad (Trinidad and Tobago) in the West Indies and relocated to United States of America at the age of 17 for college.  I am a proud mom of two CODA kids!  

What I love about my department, (Department of Counseling): teaching/ watching her students succeed in becoming phenomenal Counselors.

When I have a quiet moment, I enjoy scrapbooking, watching comedy movies, and baking gluten free cupcakes. 

I also love playing board games with my kids and friends. My favorite board games are monopoly and scrabble.

I love to travel, I have a bucket list I plan to complete before I reach 100 years old!
