Danielle was an optimistic and enthusiastic advocate who guided Eastern State through a period of incredible growth, leading the charge for effective governance, strategic planning and a new mission.

She also set a generous example when she made a gift to Eastern State in her will – one of the largest gifts we have ever received from an individual.
