Introduction by Andrew Mitchell
The first thing that strikes you about Danielle Serpanchy is her outward beauty. She has such elegance and poise (characteristics she successfully translates into her interiors) and a unique sense of style. Her Sri Lankan heritage quietly informs both her personal and professional design choices, whether that be a beautifully patterned summer dress she wears or a fabric that adorns a beautiful bedroom chair for one of her clients.
When you get to know Danielle, however, you become acutely aware that her beauty runs far deeper than the surface, and that her sense of style is backed up by a great head for figures and a fierce determation to achieve great things whilst leaving a positive mark on the world.
I have the privelege of calling Danielle a client, a work colleague and good friend. She has been a supporter of The Design Coach from its inception and has helped inform my own journey of personal and professional development.
Coaching Danielle has always been a pleasure due to her willingness to learn, her diligence in doing the work needed to get results, and an unrelenting desire to be the best version of herself possible. There is no doubt that whatever she puts her mind to she will achieve.
