PROFESSIONAL PATH TO COMPASS

THE FUN STUFF
During the summer, you can find her at Melvern Lake and Table Rock Lake. She married into a family of boating fanatics and quickly followed suit.
Her ability to navigate aquatically adds more skills to our team, enhancing our expeditions to find the perfect marketing campaigns for our clients.
She says that not much beats cruising on the water and finding a cove to float in with friends, yeticorn, and family.
When Danielle isn’t creating, crafting, and collaborating on campaigns for Compass clients, you will find her watching her favorite movie Remember the Titans or with husband cheering on the K-State Wildcats, the Royals, or their kiddos! She says the number of sports they are in just seem to keep adding up as they get older, but her and Tanner wouldn’t trade these experiences for the world.
Danielle is a key part of the team helping us navigate through development, design, and delivery of marketing campaigns for clients. She makes sure all the trails that lead out into the marketing wonderland are charted and everyone knows how to bring the adventure back home.
