Step Right Up!

The Board


Jimi Butler



Bio coming soon!

Maybe. If Jimi ever responds to our email. ;-)

So...yeah. Probably no bio.


Nicole Gara


Nicole has been a member of the Screaming Eagles since 1996 and is one of the founding board members. She is best known as the SE Ticket Mistress, having sold thousands of match tickets to folks who want to enjoy the supporters’ experience. “I thought I would retire when the team got a new stadium,” she says, “but so many exciting projects are in the works that I can’t stop now!”

Doug Norfleet



Doug became a D.C. United fan after moving to the District from Nashville in 2018. Given that his first year of fandom included signing Wayne Rooney, Audi Field's grand opening, and a home playoff game, his expectations will forever be through the roof. He is here to crunch numbers and count beans for the Eagles. 

Please don't tell Doug that Nashville has a team now. Maybe he won't notice?


Jean Kasner

Director-at-Large; Membership Director


Jean has been a United supporter since 2006, and a member of the Screaming Eagles since 2016. She is appreciative of the close friendships she has made since joining SE, and enjoys being a member of the Screaming Eagles family.

One of Jean's many favorite D.C. United memories is her first match in the Nest at RFK, which coincided with David Beckham's first MLS game. She was immediately hooked on the passionate, rowdy environment, and has been known to get pretty loud at matches herself!

Not the Board

(but we couldn't do this without them)

David Goodwin

Outreach Director

Danielle Lafave


This is Danielle's fourth season with the Screaming Eagles, as a relatively recent convert to D.C. United. In addition to managing the website, she helps out with social media and communications. She briefly served as a board member in late 2017 / early 2018.

She grew up playing soccer (defense saves games!) and loves nothing more than singing at a match at the top of her lungs. The louder the cheers, the better!

Bennett Brasfield


Bio pending until we can get Ben to give us the goods!
