Sarasota Chapter Leader Danielle Palmieri

Danielle Palmieri '21

Lives in: Lakedwood Ranch, FL

Major: Nursing

Occupation: Oncology Nurse

Favorite BC Memory: One of my favorite memories was attending the retreats, but especially Kairos. Being able to connect with fellow Eagles, reflect, and learn the secret of Kairos felt truly special.

Why did you get involved?: I’m grateful for Boston College and feel my experiences made me the individual I am today. I wanted to continue my connection and form a home away from home.

What are your local favorites?: Hmm…There’s so much to explore in the area. Some of my favorites include: The Shore on Longboat Key for dinner on the water, Via la Casa has the best latte in town, Good Liquid Brewing Company has delicious appetizers, and The Lodge is the perfect place to enjoy a cozy dinner with a pianist for ambience. PopStroke at UTC is such a fun spot to play mini golf and catch up with friends. Lastly, Waterside Place & Lakewood Ranch Main Street have so many shops, restaurants, and always hosts local events.

Fun Fact: I’m on the largest recreational cornhole league in the nation.
