Danielle reaches into her story of triumph and trauma to share real, visceral hope. like a good movie but much shorter, expect to laugh, cry, and soar. Visual Snacks Provided.



Raw. Moving. Delightful.

Not bad for a midwestern art director who’s had one hell of a time. Danielle’s unique worldview and line of work predispose her to excellent stories. In each of her talks, she balances her personal narrative against broad lessons for all people. From her very humble (pie) beginnings to a brush with death, her talks are vulnerable and inspirational, hilarious yet poignant. Bring tissues. Prepare to examine yourself. Yes, it’s that good.
