The Manchester VA Medical Center has a new director. Danielle Ocker has assumed the position after serving as the acting director for seven months. She was appointed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. New Hampshire Congresswoman Annie Kuster, a member of the House Veterans' Affairs Committee, says Ocker has distinguished herself as a leader within the VA throughout her 30 years of service within the organization. Ocker began her career at White River Junction VA Medical Center as a student nurse in 1985. She has served as a staff nurse, nurse manager of the Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Department, and Service Line Manager for Sensory and Physical Rehabilitation Service.
