By age 7, Dani had perfected the art of storytelling. She regularly regaled her parents with after-school tales of evil math equations and their allies, the wicked lunch ladies, at the kitchen table every evening. But it wasn't until her first assignment with Fresno State's newspaper, The Collegian, that she realized that telling real stories was even better.
Having earned both a B.A. and M.A. in Journalism, Dani's professional experience extends to print, broadcast and online platforms. (Though she is slightly partial to the Web's ability to do it all, and then some.)
It was during her time spent at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, however, that she stumbled upon an unexpected, journalistic passion: the land of lifestyle writing.
From the female-driven magazine, Today's CNY Woman, to the fitness and health-nut destination website, Fitbie.com, Dani has found her place writing within these types of specialized publications, and is excited to add the “green scene” to that list. Her vice: the addictive stream of home and DIY programs on HGTV.
