Danne Doering, Universal Banker, Choice Financial
Danne was born in Fargo and spent most of her childhood here. After attending high school in Hibbing, Minnesota, she missed the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo community. She came back to the area to attend Concordia College and after graduation, she decided to stay in this area.
Danne works at Choice Financial as a Universal Banker. The versatility of her role is why she loves it. Danne says, “I love my position because it is always something different and love working for Choice because of our company culture of #PeopleFirst. I love that if I see someone in need of something I am empowered to help.”
Outside of the office, Danne gives back to the community in a variety of ways. She serves as a Big Sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters in addition to serving on the Big Brother Big Sister Advisory Committee. She also serves on the American Diabetes Association North Dakota Community Leadership Board. She says the impact attending Diabetes Camp as a kid had on her was so large that she needed to continues to help and promote the American Diabetes Association as much as possible. Danne is also a member of the 2017-2018 FMWF Leadership class.
It is because of her heavy involvement in YPN and the community that both Jenny Johnson of Spotlight Media and Trevor Mathew of Choice Financial felt Danne should receive this award. Danne is the chair of the Corporate Cup committee for the second year in a row. Heading up the committee is no small task, and the fact that she stepped up to do it for a second year shows her dedication to YPN.
Danne joined YPN when she started her first 8 to 5 job to build a professional network. After attending a few of YPN’s Off the Clock events, she knew that she needed to be more involved. “YPN was the perfect fit for me, everyone was like minded in building their professional network and so friendly and inviting as well. Corporate Cup is my favorite part of the YPN.”
When Danne isn’t at a Chamber event, planning Corporate Cup or serving the community, she lives in Moorhead with her husband, Trevor and their doxie, Charlie.
The One to Watch award is given to a Young Professionals Network member who goes above and beyond, not only within their place of employment, but also within the organization and the community as a whole.
