Welcome Danielle Martin, our New Director of Human Resources!

By Darcee Kilsdonk, Executive Director |

We are excited to share that we are welcoming a new Director of HR to the ClackCoKids team!

Danielle Martin comes to ClackCoKids with an extensive background in Early Childhood Education. After earning her degree in Human Development from Washington State University, she entered the Human Resources world where she discovered her passion for supporting companies and their employees.

“I am dedicated to continuous growth, creating a positive company culture and supporting the Clackamas County Children’s Commission employees, families, children,” says Danielle.

In her personal life, Danielle is married with seven children, and is excited to become a grandma in June to twin boys. In her free time, she enjoys working out, hiking, traveling and spending time with family.

Transition to Danielle’s leadership comes with the retirement of long-standing ClackCoKids HR Director Liz Kyle. We are grateful to Liz for her years of excellence and commitment to the agency, and wish her the best in this next chapter. Danielle and Liz will work closely together to transition the role over the next month.

We are excited to see Danielle and the HR team create innovative plans to further our mission at ClackCoKids! Welcome to ClackCoKids, Danielle!
