Danielle Rose, L.A.L.D.
Director of Housing
11 years at Pheasants Ridge
As the Housing Director at Pheasants Ridge, my goal is to provide your loved ones with a caring atmosphere to call home. I enjoy welcoming new residents to the Pheasants Ridge family. It is my pleasure accommodating the unique needs of each individual through apartment modifications, delivery of services, and coordination with county case managers or other appointed representatives.
Before starting my journey at Pheasants Ridge, I was a daycare provider for family and friends while continuing my education at Rasmussen college. Through those experiences, I found my passion was caring for others. I started at Pheasants Ridge as a Resident Assistant where I whole-heartedly enjoyed making a hands on difference in improving the daily lives of our residents. My dedication to the Pheasant Ridge community led me to progress in many different areas. I have been honored to be a Resident Assistant, Team Lead, Operations and Kitchen Manager. Experiences in these roles, along with continuing education, provided experience and skills that help me best serve this community.
I have been blessed with a large, close-knit family where our weekends are spent together at the cabin. My husband and I enjoy home projects but most of all, spending time with our children.
Reach out to me with any questions!

Laura Morganthall, RN
6+ Months at Pheasants Ridge
Hello! I’m Laura and I’ve been with Pheasant’s Ridge since December 2022. I started off in healthcare working with adults with physical and mental disabilities and since then have gained experience in home care, short term rehab, infection control, wound care, and nurse management.
When working with residents I try to go the extra mile to show that I really care. I use empathy, easygoing communication, and a little sense of humor to help put them at ease in difficult situations.
When I’m not at work I enjoy playing volleyball, riding bike, online shopping, and curling up on the couch with the husband and kids.
I look forward to hearing from you!
