Throughout her career, Danielle was active in the Banking and Housing Finance Services Industries. Following a period of service at Fidelity Savings and Loan in Jacksonville, Florida, Danielle moved to Washington DC where she began a 30 year career of service to the American Bankers Association and its predecessor organizations. These included America’s Community Bankers, (formerly known as Savings and Community Bankers of America) and the U.S. League of Savings Institutions. She retired from the American Bankers Association as Vice President for State Relations, and was recognized throughout the industry for her knowledge of the industry and passionate dedication to member service.
