Born in a small town just outside of Portland, Maine, Dannielle’s love for working with children began when she accepted a position at a local childcare center. After a few years in that field, in the summer of 2005, a career opportunity for her husband brought the couple to North Carolina. Once arriving here, Dannielle made a career move into office administration. She served in this role for multiple Lake Norman area establishments from 2006-2015. At this point, and with the ambitions of soon having a child of her own, Dannielle again switched paths and became a full-time nanny, she held this position until becoming a mom herself at the end of 2016. After 4 years of being a full-time mom, Dannielle jumped back into the childcare industry when she began working as a preschool teacher at a Montessori school in Mooresville. With her daughter moving on to kindergarten this year, Dannielle felt it was time to move back into the administrative world. Her background in office management and her love for children merged when she got the amazing opportunity to work with Dr. Grayson.
