her personal and professional dreams. They
celebrated 25 years of marriage this month
and are raising three beautiful daughters.
Daniels gives a lot of credit to her mom
who was the one brave enough to follow
Susan’s dad to Alaska. Working as a dieti-
cian and doing research, she developed and
taught classes in her field of expertise, and
even starred in some television commercials.
“She camped, fished and snow-machined
right alongside my dad,” shares Daniels. “She
was a working mom of four children with
boundless energy and incredible resilience.
She’s modeled the courage and confidence
as a woman to be seen, and heard at times,
and to believe in yourself. She’s not afraid to
go boldly in causes she supports.”
Havard had a significant impact on
Daniels professionally. Serving as a men-
tor, Havard was the person who encour-
aged Daniels into leadership positions
with both Northern Adjusters and NAIIA.
“Without Dane’s mentoring, vision and
support, I would not be receiving this dis-
tinguished honor as an NAIIA leader.”
Daniels embraces her life and the oppor-
tunities that come with living in Alaska.
Her favorite outdoor activities include hik-
ing, kayaking and fishing in the summer,
and ice skating, cross country skiing and
snow machining during the winter. But
there have been some other adventures too,
including red salmon fishing on the Kenai
River, dog sledding outside of Willow, and
even a glacier landing on Ruth Glacier. She
also holds two state records for power lift-
ing and is currently training for a triathlon.
With NAIIA members representing
more than 250 independent adjusting
firms, Daniels is well aware of the responsibility and opportunity serving as president
of the organization present. “My time in the
industry has been made richer for the associations and friendships formed through
the NAIIA. As an independent adjusting
firm, it is these respected peers I call upon
when challenges strike, when solutions are
needed, and best of all, to celebrate together
when times are good. I believe the principles we were founded upon are still true for
us today and we are stronger together.”
