Danielle is originally from South Dakota and has been a part of our team since 2018. She graduated with two degrees, one in Elementary Education and one in Speech Pathology/Audiology from USD. As a Patient Navigator, she loves combining her teaching background with the medical aspect of the practice. Patients immediately feel at ease with her compassionate and gentle nature as she walks them through the process from consultation to surgery and post-operatively. She is dedicated to helping patients achieve their goals by providing each patient with a personalized experience. She serves a liaison for our patients, staff and physicians and is always available to answer questions as her patients are her top priority. She is extremely helpful in aiding our patients with her thorough understanding of procedures and facilitating the highest level of patient satisfaction. Prior to joining our team, she taught elementary school and worked as a Center Director for a child care center for several years. Teaching and encouraging breast reconstruction and cosmetic patients is now her passion. When not in the clinic, she enjoys taking in the beauty of Colorado by hiking in the mountains with her Italian Mastiff, photography, gardening and spending time with her two teen daughters.
