She was born and raised in the Historic Heights district of Houston, where she continues to reside. Always an overachiever, she was accepted into the DeBakey High School for Health Professions in the Texas Medical Center.
Thus, her high school experience was a little different from that of an ordinary high school student. During this time she was exposed to various medical rotations and preceptorships involving nurses, physical and music therapists, social workers, medical doctors, and even plastic surgeons. After four years of being surrounded by the healthcare professions, there was no other career path she could envision.
She continued her education at the University of St. Thomas, where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Arts with concentrations in Biology and Theology. She was part of the Pre-Medical Program and actively participated in on-campus scientific research which later led to a position at the Methodist Hospital Research Institute and four published scientific articles.
She received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Texas Chiropractic College and obtained a second Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology.
She completed internships at the Moody Health Center and was selected to participate in the Rice University Athletic Program, where she provided chiropractic care for student athletes. Her final off-campus preceptorship involved treating non-professional and professional athletes, including numerous NFL players and Olympic medalists.
She is licensed by the State of Texas to practice Chiropractic and Acupuncture. As of December 2012, she has also been licensed as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner.

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
