Danette is known for finding humor and a solution to almost every situation, and is often referred to as “the voice of reason”. A native of the Bay Area, she has worked in business development in the court reporting industry for over 10 years. She received her paralegal certificate and B.A. degree in Business Administration from St. Mary’s College. Having worked as a legal assistant in the beginning of her career equipped her with a much needed understanding of the special needs and expectations of her clients and chose to work for Aptus because of their ability to meet those needs. Almost famous for her Ragu sauce, Danette likes to cook Italian food and share a meal and lots of wine with both family and friends. Though her next travel destination will be to Tuscany to take cooking classes at Torre del Tartufo, a longer-term goal is to join the Peace Corps upon retirement.
