Hi, I'm Danielle.

I'm a blogger who writes about cancer survivorship, communications and faith so others facing hard times know that faith can survive! I'm also an award-winning communications professional, author, wife, mom and amateur baker.

As a two-time colon cancer survivor first diagnosed at age 17, my personal story has been told around the world through newspaper articles, blogs, TV and radio shows including The Today Show, BBC’s World Have Your Say, Sirius Radio’s Doctor Radio, The Chicago Tribune, among others.

I speak to groups of all sizes and enjoy sharing my personal story of cancer survivorship.

Comms pro

As an award-winning communications professional, I believe strong strategy and creative content are the secret sauces to effective marketing-communications campaigns. I work primarily with nonprofit clients as a storyteller, and I train writers through a variety of writing workshops. Learn more about me professionaly on my LinkedIn profile.

Author

I love to write and engage with my readers. I'm the proud author of several blogs, devotionals and articles including “Unexpected: 25 Daily Advent Devotionals" and “The Holiday Girls.” 

For fun, I can be found baking my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and spending time with my husband Mike and our daughter Mae inside our 1920's era-home we affectionately call the "Corner of Monroe" neslted in a cozy neighborhood of Kansas City.
