We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Danielle Cadnhead and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dr. Danielle, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?
As a first time mom who delivered a baby in the middle of a pandemic, there were so many changes happening with and around me including good ol’ post partum depression. Not knowing when we would be able to return to a normal lifestyle, trying to accept my new found mom body , and not being able to go gym facilities, even just for a piece of mind really took a toll on me. I wanted to come up with something that combined my work as a healthcare provider and as a new mom trying to get her “groove” back. So I created “House of Choi” ( my son’s middle name is Choy), and here we are.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner with a PhD. I am very proud to say this was all accomplished by the time I was 27 years old. I have an extensive background of different specialties in the medical field because I love learning. Being a YOUNG black women comes with many challenges with trying to secure a seat at a table full of top medical professionals. I overcome this barrier by always knowing my worth and knowing when to walk away. I have always learned that putting yourself first is always priority, also to never be loyal to ANY job. I want people to know that even though you may think the road to success is easy, it is absolutely not. Remember, people only post when they are “up”, no one is posting their downfalls. So take all that self doubt out of your mind, and keep pushing.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am all about AMBIANCE !! So anywhere that has a view and cocktails , SIGN ME UP! I love LIQUE in North Miami as well as Area 31. We would definitely catch a vibe at a my favorite place to to grab a good lychee martini ; Victory Restaurant and Lounge. And, then maybe end off at the Wharf for some fresh air and good music.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My two cousins : Kendra Carson and Victoria Carson who both have locations for House of Choi in Tampa FL and Washington D.C
