She has gained national respect as an expert in the integrated aesthetic field, emphasizing a holistic and comprehensive approach to beauty. She serves as an active member of numerous professional organizations, such as the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, AmSpa, the American Academy of Physician Associates, and the California Academy of Physician Associates.

Danielle is pursuing a doctorate degree focused on building integrative treatment models for the mainstream medical community. She is actively involved in her community and ultimately wants aesthetics and wellness to be more accessible. For so long, the beauty industry has focused on a specific patient demographic, but Danielle hopes to break down the stereotypes in the industry and open the doors for all. Danielle is a mama first and foremost, and she does what she does not only to make a difference in the lives of patients but also to show her children the value of loving what you do for work. When not working, Danielle enjoys volunteering at her children’s school and throughout the community, gardening, traveling, and cooking.
