Growing up, Danielle wanted to be either an elementary school teacher, “a kid counselor” or a “kid doctor”. In High School, she had a realization that she had a special calling of the heart, to care for children, while in a child development class.
Born and raised in Greece, NY, she is the youngest of six children. Her oldest brother loves to tell the story of when she was 4 years old and he was studying for a college exam; he was amazed she knew the words systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and their meanings! He knew at that moment she would be something in the medical field, even before she knew herself.
Danielle is board-certified with the ANCC. She earned her Master’s degree from University of Rochester and her Doctorate of Nurse Practitioner degree from St. John Fisher College.
She has many interests in the world of child and adolescent health, and has an expertise in adolescence, adolescent Gyn (especially PCOS), eating disorders, childhood obesity, nutrition, and sports medicine.
She resides with her husband and four baby kitties in Brockport, NY
