Marine Corps Spouse
Danica Hammer is a native of Northern California. She earned an Associates of Science degree in Marketing in 2009 and went on to earn a Bachelors of Science in Finance in 2016.
Danica realized early on that she was compelled to aid others in need. As such, her passion for helping others manifested into countless hours of volunteer work. Most notably were her efforts and contributions while volunteering for the non- profit organization the Semper Fi Fund, a multi-service grant program for wounded warriors, and her founding of the Yellow Ribbon Warriors, a non-profit organization that raised over $65,000 in donations for the Semper Fi Fund. Danica also, simultaneously, volunteered her time to assist other organizations, such as her husband’s military unit, Stroller Warriors, Duo Dames, Catholic Women of the Chapel, Girl Scouts of America, Marine Corps Community Services Youth Sports, and Heroes Elementary Parent-Teacher Organization. As recognition for her efforts, Danica was the runner up for the Golden Rule award, sponsored by Volunteer Onslow (The Jacksonville-Onslow Volunteer and Nonprofit Resource Center), and Military Spouse Achievement Award 2013, sponsored by Military Spouse Connection.
Danica has been married to Patrick, an active duty Marine, for the past 13 years and they have two charismatic children together. She enjoys running and has completed two full marathons and many half-marathons. Her other passion is to travel and experience the world and other cultures. Danica thrives when she is contributing to causes, which assist others in need, and plans to use the experience and knowledge she gains from her time as a Fellow at Dog Tag, Inc. to further assist others in need around the world.
