“My passion for helping others, especially seniors, came from my experiences while growing up as I was raised by my great-grandparents. It’s truly an honor to be able to advocate for those who can’t or aren’t quite sure how to use their voice, and I thank Empowered Aging for allowing me to grow with them and continue my mission of serving others.”
Outside of work, Daunje loves spending quality time with her family and cooking…cooking a lot of food that fills her heart and soul!
