Alberta Co-Representative

Danielle Kody

Danielle Kody


Dani (she/her) was born and raised in Fort McMurray, Alberta prior to moving to Edmonton for her education. She currently lives and works in Canmore, Alberta, which is located right in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Canmore, known as Chuwapchipchiyan Kudi Bi by the Stoney Nakoda, is located within Treaty 7 territory and has long standing connections with the Stoney Nakoda, Blackfoot, Tsuut’ina, Ktunaxa, Secwépemc, Dene, Mountain Cree, and Métis people.


Dani attended MacEwan University and obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) degree with distinction in 2016. Due to her passion for nursing and learning, she is currently completing further graduate education to obtain her Masters in Nursing (MN) with a focus on leadership and planetary health.


Despite being in the profession for less than 10 years, Dani has worked as a Registered Nurse (RN) in a variety of settings to serve many rural and urban communities across Alberta. With a special interest in trauma nursing, she spent a large majority of her career in emergency departments and a Level 1 general systems intensive care unit. She then began nursing in a community setting as a public health nurse for healthy young families and now as a case manager/interventionist for homecare.


Outside is her best side and she is quite passionate about promoting planetary health within her studies, professional career, and personal life. She enjoys the snow and playing in the mountains whether it’s on skis, snowshoes, skates, or her feet! She hopes to inspire her fellow nurses in promoting planetary health within their practice by role modelling eco-ethical leadership and advocating for more sustainable healthcare.
