At Union, she was involved with the UCARE fellowship where she spent countless hours providing direct care for hospice patients. She graduated with honors and then continued her education in Manhattan at Touro College where she received a second Bachelor’s Degree in Health Sciences and followed that up with a Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies. Danielle worked at Fox & Schingo during a student rotation as part of her master’s degree studies in the spring of 2018. Following her internship, she was selected as one of five students to be part of an advanced clinical training track fellowship. The fellowship consisted of 15 weeks at Good Samaritan Hospital on Long Island in the emergency room where she enhanced her skills as a practitioner. Danielle graduated from Touro College in the top 10% of her class. Danielle spends her free time with her parents, sisters, niece, nephews and her fiancé who all live locally.
