Danielle began studying violin in 1995 and quickly grew to love the instrument. Growing up, she was a member of the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County (YOBC) and performed as a soloist in the group’s 2004 summer tour of Scandinavia. She served as concertmaster for both YOBC and her high school orchestra. She also participated in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association orchestra competitions, and was selected to the All-State Orchestra in 2006.
Danielle attended Bucknell University, where she served as concertmaster for 6 semesters under the direction of her private violin instructor, Christopher Para. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in Cell Biology and Biochemistry with a minor in Spanish. Following college, she moved to Baltimore to attend the University of Maryland School of Medicine and received her M.D. in May 2014. Throughout medical school, Danielle was an active participant in the Baltimore Philharmonia Orchestra, and has been a member of the Hunt Valley Symphony Orchestra since it’s inception in 2013. She feels honored to be a part of such a lively group of talented and committed musicians, and is thankful for the musical learning and growth that the organization has provided.
Currently, Danielle is in her first year of residency at the University of Maryland Medical Center, where she is pursuing training in Internal Medicine. When she is not working or playing violin, she enjoys running (the Baltimore Running Festival Team Relay is a favorite!), cooking, cross-stitching, wine, and spending time with family and friends.
