WHO WE ARE
Founder & Executive Director
Danielle, born and raised in sunny Boca Raton, and is an early childhood educator. A diehard Gator fan, she graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management in 2007. She landed her dream job with the Miami HEAT and even has two NBA Championship rings (just ask and you may be able to sneak a peak), but she realized that while her career in sports was fun and exciting, she wasn’t feeling fulfilled. So she decided to go after her true passion: educating young children. Danielle accepted a full time position in 2016 a Lehman Jewish Day School and has never looked back. Walking into her classroom each morning and preparing for each day with the adorable Turning Twos is a big part of how she found her passion and overall happiness.
