 Danielle was born January 7,1979 in Sedalia, Missouri. Her childhood was spent in Fulton, New York (just outside Syracuse) where she received her High School degree from Fulton High School in 1997. She then attended the University at Pittsburgh for a year and then transferred to the University at Buffalo where she earned a B.S. in Industrial Engineering, a Masters of Business Administration and a Juris Doctorate.

In 2001 Danielle moved to Rochester, NY, married James and found employment at the law firm of Dolin, Thomas and Solomon on East Ave. There she made many friends and loved her job and the work she did. Danielle was a member of the Monroe County bar Association.


Danielle was an avid supporter of many charitable organizations such as the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester, UB Alumni Association, Gilda’s Club and the United Way among many others. Although her two favorite charities were Grace Urban Ministries (GUM) in Rochester and The Phoenix Food Pantry in Phoenix, NY. Both of these charities have very close relations to Danielle with her close friend the Rev. Mary Martin tirelessly working with GUM and her Grandmother Eva running the Food Pantry in Phoenix.


Danielle enjoyed many hobbies that included, gardening, baking, cooking, hanging out with friends, and travel. Moreover, Danielle was a kind, intelligent, selfless, caring woman who was always driven to succeed in whatever task she took on. This was clearly evident in her fight against breast cancer; she never gave up and continued to be optimistic throughout the battle. She was truly a wonderful soul who would do anything for anyone. And perhaps most importantly, she always looked for the good in every situation with a cheerful smile.


Our hope is to continue Danielle’s charitable work the best we can and with your support hopefully we can continue to help those in need.
