Her career began working as an RVT at emergency and critical care hospitals in central California. She spent 2 years working at UC Davis, Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, working as a critical care technician in the Small Animal ICU.

Danielle is the proud mother of two boys, two feisty cats (Norman and Ellie) and one very large, very goofy Malinois named Loki, whom she rescued from the shelter here in Las Vegas. She enjoys a good book, soft blankets and a rainy day!
