As Vice President of Operations, Danielle oversees all corporate operations and financial activities. She began at Orchard in 2006 as Administrative Liaison, responsible for providing office support to our case managers in the field. In her successful efforts to alleviate nursing staff from performing clerical tasks, Danielle played a key role in developing Orchard’s competitive advantage which is still maintained today: our case managers spend their valuable time making critical judgment calls rather than typing letters at their desks. This strategy has resulted in significant increases in both client and employee satisfaction.
Shortly after starting at Orchard, Danielle was promoted to Office Manager and then Director of Operations while simultaneously supervising all human resources activities. Her keen talent for coaching and ability to drive high performance among her staff results in the highest level of operational efficiency our organization has experienced since its inception.
In December 2016, Danielle was named the winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award as voted by the employees at Orchard Medical Consulting. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona and has three kids named Jordan, Ashley, and Ryan. She volunteers regularly with Kids’ Chance of Arizona and enjoys playing soccer, hiking, photography, concerts, and spending time with her children at the beach.
