Hi, I'm Danielle.

I'm a writer, speaker and professional storyteller (otherwise known as a communications consultant). You can find me on social media as @DanielleisB.

As a two-time colon cancer survivor first diagnosed at age 17, I write and speak so other people facing hard things get encouraged to believe faith is way better than doubt.

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, including those who follow my Instagram stories.

As an award-winning communications professional, I believe strong strategy and creative content are the secret sauces to effective campaigns. Learn more about me professionaly on my LinkedIn profile.

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" in our cozy Kansas City neighborhood.
