“Danielle, first of all let me say what a pleasure it has been to work with you over the past decade. Your down to earth no-nonsense approach to “getting er done” has always served both you and PPHSA well. Over the years we’ve shared some outstanding experiences and memories, both at work and socially at some of our team building events. One that springs to mind is the 60 ft put you drained on the 18 th tee at Osprey Links when you, Steve and I made up the PPHSA golf dream team (Jerry, might disagree on who the dream team was). I also think back to the time we almost had you on the Chief Commanda….l think we’d need another ten years to get that one accomplished.

I know your moving on to new challenges and a new chapter for Danielle. I know you’ll be successful in whatever you take on and that you’ll add value to wherever you decide to hang your hat. Change can be a little unnerving, but it’s also a great opportunity for new experiences and new friendships. I want to say thanks for all you’ve done over the years and if I could sum up in a few words your style, then these jump out for me immediately:

Tenacity: Your drive and doggedness to meet your deadlines, month in and month out always stood out. When the sign said “Do not disturb — Month End”, you meant it.

A great team player: Whatever the task was, you were always willing to jump in and lend a hand. Whether it was an insert in Guardian Magazine, registration at conference or supporting Rebecca in her role, you’d be there, no questions, no complaints.

Professional: Both Steve and I always had a comfort level with you at the financial helm of PPHSA. Dean (BDO Auditor) confirmed that year in year out. Your advice was always sound and ensured we were financially squeaky clean…nice to have as a CEO.

Finally Danielle I want to wish you all the best and I hope that you look back at our time together with fond memories, some good laughs and a sense of real accomplishment. Enjoy this next chapter in your life and know you have made a positive impact on those around you. I know that’s how I’ll remember it.” ~ Paul Andre, Workplace Safety North
