Originally from Hamilton, Ontario; graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. 

She has 10 years of experience in the sport performance industry completing internships with McMaster University, and Athletes’ Performance (EXOS) California. These internships granted her the opportunity to work with CIS, Hockey Canada, MLB, MiLB, PGA, LPGA, NHL, CFL, and MLS teams and athletes.

Working as the strength and conditioning coordinator for the Alberta Sport Development Centre; and as a strong advocate of the Long Term Athlete Development model, Danielle helped paved the way for developmentally appropriate sport science within the sporting community of Grande Prairie.  

In the 7 years she was there, she helped develop a strong strength and conditioning plan for various teams and athletes of various competition levels and actively volunteered with Arctic Winter Games, Alberta Games, and Canada Games. Most recently, working with the Grande Prairie Catholic District School District to build the Athletic Development program at St. Joseph’s High School as part of the Celtic Academy.

Danielle believes in an athlete centred approach to training, building the fundamentals in the weight room to ensure athletes have a safe, healthy and fun relationship with training. 

Aside from improving performance, her goal is to provide the student athletes the knowledge and confidence they need to continue training wherever their athletic careers take them.
