Danielle Carter-Sullivan

Director, Mental Health
British Columbia Ministry of Education
Canada: British Columbia Hub | NORTH AMERICA

Danielle Carter-Sullivan is from British Columbia (BC), Canada and works for the Ministry of Education as Director Mental Health. Her team focuses on mental health and substance use priorities in the Kindergarten to Grade 12 education system.

First, she is a mom, daughter, sister and wife. She and her husband have three teenage/twenty-something children, and all of these roles keep her grounded and filled with joy! (Most of the time…).

Danielle has worked for the BC Government for almost 30 years, taking time off to travel, live in Australia and have children. She spent most of her career in human resources and more-recently decided a ‘change’ was needed. She had the fortunate opportunity to come into the Ministry of Education, both challenging (steep learning curve) and awesome (students are at the center of all we do)! She loves to be outdoors, preferably on a lake, adventures, cooking, soccer, discovering new places with her family and puttering in the garden.

Danielle is fascinated by the complexity of systems and the inter-connectedness of all we do. In completing the Certification Program for Compassionate Systems Master Practitioners she aspires to continue to grow and evolve the work and bring a CSL lens to the system in BC. She strives to cultivate a quiet in herself and effectively contribute to system-wide change through compassion.
