MATTERSVILLE PACK LEADERS
Committed to The Cause because the cost of doing nothing is unacceptable…
Founder/ Executive Director
Besides being a fulltime father to his two daughters, Drew’s devotion towards helping Veterans is unmatched. Prior to launch, Drew put in years of research to create the foundation of what became Mattersville. Drew is a Solar Design Specialist and studied at Solar Energy International focusing on off-grid solutions including battery banks. His motivation came from the loss of one of his best friends, Former Marine Randy Hansen, who suffered from PTSD for years leading up to his accident.

After joining Mattersville at the very beginning of 2020, Danielle has become a dedicated member of the Mattersville team. Originally, she heard about Mattersville when she heard about the Rocky Mountain Wildlife Foundation’s closing- upon hearing the wolf-dogs were moving, she wanted to help in the transferring process. After finding out more about the organization, however, she decided to become a recurrent volunteer! She was inspired to dive into helping the organization as much as possible after knowing the goal was to help Veterans, but also take in the wolf-dogs. Since she started volunteering, she’s dedicated countless hours into helping where she can! She’s thrilled to see Mattersville continue expanding, and is excited to see where it builds in the future.
