Daniels has led the Army Reserve since July 2020. She previously commanded the 88th Regional Readiness Division and served as chief of staff for Army Forces Command.

As Army Reserve chief, Daniels has pushed for a return to the fundamentals of soldiering by slashing administrative tasks, pushing knowledge and decision-making down to junior leaders and honing a plan to fill the ranks with new talent.

“We have a fantastic force, but we need more soldiers like those who currently serve,” Daniels said earlier this year, according to an Army article.

As part of her push to recruit top talent, Daniels is asking her soldiers for help.

“I need soldiers to share their experiences with their coworkers, classmates, community leaders, friends and families,” she said, according to the Army. “Tell them what you do and what the Army Reserve is all about.”
