I started life as a traveling gypsy around the country when I was only 19. Being already deeply in love with life on the road and seeing incredibly memorable live concerts and DJ’s, propelled me to keep chasing my “wanderlust”.
As I struggled through noticing our nation's and my own health challenges, I realized I wanted to do something to help heal people. I had always privately studied organic foods, yoga, and meditation but I wanted to be a bigger part of a movement I saw people taking into holistic health.
I ended up choosing a very special school called The Heartwood Institute located in Garberville, CA, where you live in the mountains of Humboldt County and learn about taking care of yourself and how to do effective heartfelt, ethical bodywork. I graduated with a certification in Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage Therapy in February of 2003 and then set up my first massage practice in Santa Cruz a year later. After a while I realized the music was still calling me.
As I had always been a musician myself and wanted to know more about sound, I then moved to Winter Park, FL and graduated from Full Sail University with an Associate in Recording Arts in 2006. In 2007 I became Full Sail University’s Coordinator of Show Production and eventually all audio programs for about three and a half years and met many amazing instructors, producers and musicians as well as learned about the ins and outs of the show production industry.
I guess you could say I am a “Jill of all Trades”, as I have worked for chiropractors, spas, outcalls,and myself for the last ten years doing massage, cake decorating, waiting tables and yes working in the rock and roll industry!
As an official Dot Bot I feel extremely fortunate to bring my hybrid experience of music and massage to Dr. Dot’s International Massage and Chiropractic team. I look forward to bringing you peace and relaxation, so you can rock the mic at every show!
“"I am very familiar with the Dr. Her team is awesome"” Steve Vai Tour Manager Warren
“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.
