Danielle has been married to Ben for nearly 10 years and they have two children, Finn and Grace, who are enrolled in The Goddard School of Mechanicsville. “My experience with The Goddard School started as a parent when Ben and I enrolled our children in a Goddard School. At The Goddard School we watched our children build a love for learning in a nurturing environment.
