Currently she works in the nonprofit sector as an administrative coordinator. Siobhan spends most of her free time walking around Forest Park or trying out a new recipe at home.

Dannine Consoli has served on the UNA Portland Board as Secretary this past year and taken photos at our events. Dannine is originally from California. Dannine obtained her Juris Doctor and Master of Laws at the University at Buffalo, New York, where she took courses in International Human Rights Law, with a particular interest in women’s rights.

She spent a year working in New Zealand. Dannine is a registered attorney in New York and Oregon, and currently works as a litigation officer for a regional Pacific Northwest bank.
