Born and raised in Chicago, Danielle’s outgoing personality and unceasing ambition has helped her maintain an active presence in the entertainment industry since the age of 17, when she secured her first internship at Chicago’s #1 hit radio station, B96.

She loves nothing more than a meaningful conversation, a contagious laugh, and a great story.
