Danielle Brown

Senior Service Facilitator

Danielle lives in Stuarts Draft with her husband and seven children. She was introduced to the special needs community with the adoption of her middle daughter. Having a child with special needs has presented so many new daily challenges and struggles for her family, but the greatest struggle they have had to overcome is learning about all the different programs available to help. Danielle is so thankful for her daughter's doctor who introduced the EDCD program and, from that, Moms In Motion. She has grown very passionate about advocating for not only the children, but also the parents. Danielle understands the whole mix of emotions that come from caring for a special loved one, and now she has a passion to help other families.

In her free time, Danielle enjoys spending time with her family, camping, cooking, canning, and making soap!
