Hi, I'm Danielle.

I'm a storyteller who fell in love with words thanks to a hand-me-down thesaurus in fourth grade. 

A few weeks after my 17th birthday, I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I'm in remission after facing it a second time in my mid-twenties. Today, I'm a 20-year cancer survivor. My story has been featured on The Today Show, BBC’s World Have Your Say, Sirius Radio’s Doctor Radio, The Chicago Tribune, and many other blogs, podcasts and more. Bylines include the Huffington Post, Philadelphia Inquirer and Cure Magazine.

I'm also an award-winning public relations professional and the author of Blush: How I barely Survived 17 and Unexpected: 25 Advent Devotionals. Check out some of my clients and favorite projects in my portfolio.

Home is in Kansas City with my husband Mike and daughter Mae. When I'm not writing, you can find me baking my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s a good one. 

Still curious?
