Danielle DeHaven was born in Westfield, NY and graduated from Westfield Academy and Central School, where she was an avid athlete and scholar. She attended Houghton College, and she received her Bachelor of Science in Sports Medicine/Athletic Training with a minor in Education. Following college, she worked for a podiatrist and then a chiropractic neurologist, where she was in charge of patient modalities and instructed therapeutic exercises and rehabilitation.
In 1998, she and her husband moved to Raleigh, NC, where she began working in orthopedics as a medical assistant. In 2003, she left orthopedics and attended the Medical Arts Massage School in Raleigh and received her massage therapy certification. She opened her own practice, Advanced Therapeutic Massage, with locations in Raleigh and Cary. She also began working with the Carolina Ballet company as both an athletic trainer and massage therapist.
At the same time, she started her own practice, but she also desired to return to working with physicians and began a part-time job at Wake Medical Center in Cary, NC as a clinical secretary. Her management skills soon led to a position as the Clinical Secretary Team Leader for the Medical-Surgical unit and eventually to the Team Leader for all of WakeMed Cary Hospital. Her leadership skills were recognized through receiving the WakeMed Circle of Quality Service Award, a distinguished award throughout the WakeMed Hospital system.
In 2009, she was invited to join Dr. James Stevens in AIHF Executive Health as his Clinical Care Coordinator. She continues to work with him today and has expanded her clinical management and leadership skills as the VP of Clinical Services at Essential Health & Wellness.
Danielle is a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. She has been attending these continuing education modules along with Dr. Stevens since October of 2013. In May of 2014, Danielle passed the American Academy of Anti-Aging Health Practitioner certification exam and is now a Diplomat in Anti-Aging Medicine.
Danielle is married to Corey DeHaven and they have two beautiful children. When she’s not working, she enjoys playing with her children, quiet time, traveling, and reading a good book.
