Danielle’s passion for business started when she joined Business Professionals of America in 2004 and was the president of her chapter at the Allegan Tech Center 2005-2006. Her drive and hard work lead to a job opportunity working for a Union Electrical contractor her first summer out of High School. Danielle spent the next thirteen years progressing in different roles within the company learning the ins and out of both business and construction while attending Kalamazoo Valley Community College and Western Michigan University. December 2014 Danielle received her Bachelor’s degree from WMU with honors, where she majored in Finance and Accounting. Shortly thereafter, she and her husband welcomed their third child into the world. Danielle continued to work in Project Management, overseeing all Electrical Projects at two major pharmaceutical plants in the area. Including controlling budgets, negotiating contracts and subcontracts and communicating with project teams to ensure jobs remained on schedule and within budget. A team player, Danielle holds an outstanding track record of strong working relationships with owners, architects and engineers, resulting in successful construction experiences.
Outside of the office Danielle’s three children keep her busy with gymnastics, ice skating, downhill skiing and fishing. She also has been a volunteer with Girls on the Run of Kalamazoo for the past 4 years and is looking forward to coaching the upcoming season.
