Danielle Panarello, Director of Operations  |  danielle@sodelconcepts.com

Danielle was born and raised in Media Pennsylvania. She enjoyed cooking as a young person but despite being urged by her father to pursue a degree in the culinary arts decided on a more practical path, attending the University of Delaware where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice. Throughout college Danielle worked in local restaurants and relocated to Rehoboth Beach where there was a vibrant, if small, restaurant scene. It was during this time that she decided to finally drop everything and attend The Restaurant School in Philadelphia where she received a degree in pastry arts.

Danielle has worked as  pastry chef for local restaurant icons LaLa Land, The Back Porch CafĂ©, and Eden. During her twelve year tenure at Eden she also became the director of operations and events coordinator.

In 2016 Danielle joined SoDel Concepts as a Director of Operations at the Clubhouse at Baywood, where she oversees all operations on the property including the restaurant, the event facility, the concession stand and the cart services.  Danielle lives in Rehoboth Beach with her husband George.
