I was incarcerated from 2014 to 2020, and even though I was scared to death to meet her the first few times lol, she and I became close friends! Not just Dr and patient! She really was a genuine person under all that toughness! I'm going to miss her and I will never forget the yrs I got to spend with her! I'm grateful for all of it!! I'm truly saddened by this and my thoughts and prayers go out to her family!!! Oh, and of course, her dog!! 😊

Dr. Daniels was an amazing woman, coworker, and friend who truly cared about those around her. She didn’t sugar coat, and was an amazing professional. I will cherish her forever and the light she showed me in one of my darkest hours. May she Rest In Peace. She will truly be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

As part of Dr. Daniels work family I will miss seeing her walk the halls on her way to the mental health building always greeting me with a smile and a laugh or two before she hit those doors. My deepest condolences to her family. She will be greatly missed.
