In June of 2012 Danielle was hit by a drunk driver and sustained a traumatic brain injury, setting her life on a different course. She learned to take that trauma and shift it into something that fueled her growth. Many people talk about PTSD after trauma, but she shines light on PTG. Post traumatic growth. Rumi says it beautifully in his quote, “The wound is where the light gets in.” Danielle helps people see how all that is unfolding in their life is happening FOR them and encourages people to ask, “what is this challenge making possible?”

When you can see that what you go through in life is teaching you to access the strength within you, this is when you begin to open up to the potential laying dormant inside. So many miss the beauty of what challenges bring them, learn to transmute the energy and you will ultimately gain a different appreciation for life, your relationships will depen and your ability to be present and connect in with life will strengthen.

Her inspiring story and perspective has touched thousands around the world. Her intention is to use what she learned to impact the lives of others through educating on mindsets, technologies, and techniques that can empower the mind, body and spirit of anyone crossing her path.

Post Traumatic Growth Specialist

At the age of 23 Danielle was hit by a drunk driver and sustained a life-altering injury to her brain. The medical world said there was no hope of recovery & told her to accept this life as her “new normal”.

Although her body was physically impaired, her spirit was strong & she refused to believe their diagnoses. Her mind was determined to recover…and she did! She is a testament to the concept of post traumatic growth. She has since built an international business, authored an e-book called 'Mind Control' and shares her life-altering experience with countless people around the globe.
