Danielle at Work

Hi, my name is Danielle VanZorn, and this is where I write about some of my favorite things to share with my clients, business partners, and friends.

The quick low down on me: originally from Seattle, now residing in Sarasota, I’m a Senior Certified Professional in Human Resources, Certified Project Management Professional, and SHRM-Senior Certified Professional, with a B.A. in Business Administration and Management. I have been a business consultant, project manager, and operations leader for nearly two decades and love creating and managing programs, while leading teams through successful project life-cycles using traditional methodologies, along with Agile as a Certified Scrum Master and Lean as a Certified Six Sigma Black Belt.

Anyone who knows me is well aware of my crusade for building outstanding client and employee relations, my passion for change management and my ever-vigilant desire to create organizational cultures that promote respect, trust and loyalty – not to mention, my obsession with absolute operational efficiency! I’ve worked with so many fantastic organizations from Fortune 100’s through startups and have loved collaboratively solving pain points and delivering results that met strategic needs.

My newest journey – joining Predict Align Prevent as their Director of Operations! PAP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that’s dedicated to discovering a primary prevention bundle that stops child maltreatment before it happens. We use place-based predictive analytics, develop cross-sector prevention efforts, align community resources, and support ongoing analysis and collaboration of outcomes ensuring a continuous program improvement loop. PAP is doing exceptional work, and I am so happy to be a part of it! Please take a look and learn more at www.predict-align-prevent.org

As for my personal life, I’m devoted to animal welfare and have fallen into turtle and tortoise rescue where my ever-growing numbers of saved reptilian friends demand the crisper be stocked full of veggies and fruits at all times. I also strongly support cancer research as I started my career working for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle and was deeply moved by my experience and motivated to help in any way I can.

As for my family, I have a husband and three awesome kids who keep me on my toes, to say the least, but as if that was not enough we decided to adopt three puppies at once so now our house has been completely turned upside down. This in part may also have something to do with the three kittens, but let’s not go there right now.

So, here’s a peek into my professional pursuits, the causes I hold dear and my ever-crazy family life which is becoming more and more zoo-like every day.

Please contact me for more information regarding Predict Align Prevent, or if you know of a turtle in need!

Warmest regards,
Danielle VanZorn, PMP, SPHR, SHRM-SCP
