Danna Casserly has advocated for health care access for low-income consumers since she began her legal career as a Staff Attorney with the Pennsylvania Health Law Project (PHLP) in 2013. Her work has focused on representing children with complex disabilities in Medicaid appeals involving denials of home health services, e.g. skilled nursing and home health aide. Danna is also committed to systemic advocacy efforts around improving access to home health services for children with disabilities.

In 2021, Danna became PHLP’s Director of Development and Communications and spearheaded a revamped development and communications plan that has increased individual and corporate donations to the organization and expanded the organization’s reach and recognition in the community. In early 2023, Danna took on her current role of Acting Co-Executive Director of PHLP.

Danna is a recipient of Villanova University School of Law’s Walter Lucas Public Interest Fellowship and Deirdre L. Bailey Leadership Scholarship.
