  • Danielle

    Practice Manager

    Danielle joined the Leland team in September of 2014 but has been working with animals in one capacity or another since 2010.

Of course, Danielle is the type of person that has many passions including her beautiful family (a husband of many years, an older daughter, two young boys, a new baby boy, two dogs, one cat, and a partridge and a pear tree – j/k), learning about and cooking food, and cycling. Danielle even cycles to work sometimes which is at least 13 miles one-way (that will get you ready for a good day at Leland!). Danielle has a degree from Johnson and Wales University and is currently pursuing other “avenues” of obtaining knowledge within the scopes of her passions. Danielle is a valuable addition to our team and is great with our clients and patients. We hope to never lose her.
