Danielle is a motivated, driven woman whose incredible journey has taken her over many obstacles – from being a teen Mom and marrying young (and so proud to still be going strong 28 years later), raising 4 children while being a military wife and now a military mother. She has worked hard from early on to take care of herself and others. Danielle has a love for learning, earning a B.A in Biology, minor in Psychology and Project Management as well as an Associates in Early Childhood Education. She is confident, authentic and honest to a fault. With her experience owning several successful businesses she brings a wide array of knowledge to her clients. Danielle is continually empowering others to make a positive impact and to leave a legacy.

Her philanthropic activities began at a young age when she started volunteering with Special Olympics to support her cousin. Over the years Danielle has been an active volunteer with Boys & Girls Club of America, Habitat for Humanity, USO, Military Spouses, several PTO’s and Non-profits for Children, Disabled & Animals. In 2017, she created and built the only Sensory Garden in Aurora at Star K Ranch with her leadership team & Allstate staff. The sensory garden is designed to provide a fully accessible walking path with areas to touch, feel, and smell as well as having games & an interactive fairy garden. Her latest project as a Rotarian and board member for Parks & Recreation is creating the first Inclusive Playground in the City of Aurora that will serve over 500 children with disabilities as well as adults and veterans. The Playground will be open this summer.

Danielle’s Motto:
It never hurts to ask – because the worst someone can say is no.
