DANIELLE

A BIT OF PERSONAL HISTORY

Baby Danielle would not have been born if American soldiers had not taken her pregnant mother in a jeep to
Carentan
close to Utah Beach
(remember "Band of Brothers" ?)

Suzanne, a cousin was killed by shrapnel next to her father & mother…

Because of the stories she heard from her parents of the D-Day 1944 period, Danielle always felt some kind of gratitude towards United States and this is why she first went there in 1967 and again in 1968 to marry a Texan…
She lived in Texas & California
for about 16 years then decided to "go back to her roots" in 1983

Highlights of Danielle's 26 years of varied experience in the travel industry include service as the Director of the Caen & Falaise Tourist Offices, Travel agent in Houston & San Diego,
Area Sales Manager for Meridien hotels based in Los Angeles.

In addition to her native French, Danielle is fluent in English and also speaks German and some Spanish
as a result of her residence in those countries.
She has traveled extensively throughout the world and now looks forward to introducing the treasures of Normandy to you !

She now works as an independent Travel coordinator & guide
and resides in the small town of Isigny-sur-Mer
(liberated June 8th by the
75th R.I. of the 29th Inf.Div.)
right in the center of the American sector of the D-Day Beaches.
