Dani Madrone lives in Olympia, where she works with Olympians for People-Oriented Place on issues related to urban density. She organized support for Missing Middle housing, an ordinance adopted by the city at the end of 2018. She has worked on environmental recovery, sustainable transportation, farmland preservation, and climate change. Because better conversations are essential to turning the corner on controversial issues, she hosts a podcast called The Olympia Standard to improve public discourse in her community. She has an MPA with a focus in public policy from the Evergreen State College.
