She has been a faculty member in Psychology at IUPUI since 2009 and is the Director of Clinical Training for Clinical Psychology PhD program at IUPUI.

    Danielle Burkett has been a Certified Peer Recovery Coach since the end of 2016 and is in long term recovery herself. Since March of 2022 she has been recovering from a stroke but decided to finish school and got her Master’s in social work in April 2023. Danielle’s passion lies with youth and the incarcerated. Danielle has worked inside 3 county jails and 1 work release since she has become a Peer Recovery Coach. This year marks 8 years that she has been out of the justice system. From 12 years old to 35 she struggled with staying out of the justice system because of her addiction to substances. Since the stroke, she didn’t have the internal barriers from her trauma, so she founded the non-profit, Unlikely Journeys, Inc, in August 2022 to help youth in the justice system with their trauma.
