Meet the Staff

Our executive director, Danielle, will gently support and encourage you throughout your spiritual retreat.

Danielle Demko

Executive Director

OHI community member since 2018

“I’m passionate about people—and inspiring them to live life at the highest level. That’s why it’s such an honor to encourage and cheer our community members on as they navigate their healing journeys. I’ve also pursued my own healing journey through the years—and joining OHI finally sync’d what I knew instinctively and had learned over the years about the connection between body, mind and spirit. Its simple truths are profound!”

Our chiropractor and one of our facilitators, Dr. Suzi, helps support and encourage guests during all of our holistic retreats.

"My experience has been very rewarding to serve on the board of OHI Austin. It has allowed me to extend my stewardship to the Optimum Health Institute. My passion has been to inform the guests with the program material and therefore empower them to make the right choices for their body, mind, and spirit balance. As a Board Member, decisions are made to continue supporting the program that has enlightened so many people around the world!"

"I believe career starts with ‘care’ and feel blessed to bring my profession and passions full circle here at OHI. As a former guest, I saw OHI as a healing refuge - and now get to return the favor. It took 19 years at P&G followed by a career change into health and wellness, but the journey has been invigorating and I’m excited to help others succeed in their own wellness journeys."
