Physical therapist named Dare Employee of the Month

By on September 7, 2017

Danielle Stine, a physical therapist with the Department of Health and Human Services, has been named Dare County Employee of the Month for August.

Holly Meekins, the department’s Public Health nursing director, presented Stine with the award at the Aug. 7 Board of Commissioners meeting.

Stine was hired in September, 2010 and began working as one of two physical therapists with Dare Home Health and Hospice. Stine visits patients in their homes after their doctors have referred them for physical therapy evaluation and treatment. These referrals can occur after surgery, stroke, injury or when any change in medical status causes mobility issues.


“Danielle helps patients make personal goals and devises a plan of treatment for that individual to help them reach those goals,” Meekins said.

“Patients absolutely love her. She makes sure they know how much she cares about them and they appreciate it. She is thorough in her job and meticulous with her paperwork.”

Stine is a married mother of two and in her spare time she is a physical trainer at the YMCA in Nags Head.
