Hoping to work in a field where she could do well for herself by doing well for others, Danielle joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 1992. She has never looked back. Instead, she has felt fulfilled helping clients look forward to important goals they envision for the people and causes that hold meaning in their lives.
On a given day, Danielle finds herself guiding and mentoring clients on four continents. Her commitment to providing “best practices” and serving their best interests has resulted in loyalty among many clients who’ve been with her for decades. Danielle believes that keeping clients educated and informed is critical. She also extends herself to clients’ children – helping them understand the challenges of managing wealth and steps toward financial independence.

Danielle is also a qualified Portfolio Advisor who, in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, can help clients pursue their investment objectives by recommending individual, or any combination of, Merrill or approved third-party investment managers’ strategies, funds or portfolios.
