For the past 14 years, Care Free Medical has been providing Lansing area residents with the health care they desperately need even though they don’t have any insurance. In 2004 Care Free’s goal was to reach 100 people. But now that number has grown to almost 10,000 office visits a year. And the need isn’t going away. So to meet the demand Care Free is looking to hire another family physician. The qualifications? A passion to improve the quality of life for patients and a love for the community.

Prior to joining Care Free, Danielle honed her clinical and front office expertise while working as a Registered Medical Assistant for nearly 28 years. She has experience in family and internal medicine, oncology, and pediatrics. Danielle enjoys helping others and has always known that caring for others is what she is meant to do.
There are many reasons Danielle loves working for Care Free Medical. First and foremost is the opportunity to work with underserved and underinsured individuals who would otherwise go without care.
