Daniel came to Florida Atlantic in 2003 as a former student-athlete, with a vision to become an athletic department administrator that bettered the experience of its student-athletes. In more than the decade she has worked at FAU, Daniel has touched nearly every facet of FAU athletics either first-hand or through oversight.

In her latest role as Associate AD for Internal Operations / SWA, assumed in September 2017, Daniel has direct oversight of volleyball, women’s basketball, softball, women’s soccer and beach volleyball. Along with those sports she oversees Human Resources, strength and conditioning, sports medicine, and equipment.

The previous two years (August 2015-September 2017), Daniel held the title of assistant AD for administration. In that role she had sport oversight for women’s soccer, softball, men’s tennis, women’s tennis and beach volleyball.

From October 2007-August 2015, Daniel served as a mainstay in the athletic business office as well as FAU athletic department’s integral utility member through administrative transitions among employees. For the first three years, she worked with the business office where relationships with coach and campus administrations were built. Those efforts garnered Daniel her first assistant AD title in October of 2010. She continued to focus her day-to-day efforts in the business office until April 2013 when she was asked to help strengthen the efforts of the compliance office in the areas of initial eligibility and admissions.

In August of 2013, Daniel was asked to serve as the interim associate AD for business until a fulltime replacement could be named. With the move, she was elevated to Associate AD for Business. The seven-month stint ended in February when she returned to her role as an assistant AD for Compliance and Administration.

With the growth of the department, Daniel moved out of compliance in August of 2015 to devote her full-time efforts towards oversight as an assistant AD for administration.

FAU is what brought the Evansville, Indiana native to Florida. After graduating from the University of Southern Indiana with a bachelor of science in teaching in 1998, Daniel joined the FAU women's basketball staff as an administrative assistant, a position she served from 1999-00. She left FAU for a brief time, but not the area, while she obtained her Master’s degree in sport and athletic administration from Lynn University. While there, she was part of a coaching staff that led the Knights to their first NCAA Softball Regional Tournament.

Upon her return to FAU in 2003, Daniel served as the director of event management and facility operations.
