Danielle is an Oregonian and probably always will be! Although she spent some time living and going to school in Arizona where she earned a degree in Public Health from Northern Arizona University.
While in Arizona she worked for many years promoting physical activity and healthy eating with families and communities. A longing for the landscapes of the pacific northwest and a chance to pursue more education brought her back to Oregon, where she accepted a position at Recreational Sports.
Here at OSU Danielle’s goal is to help students discover the joy of daily physical activity and other well-being practices that lead to healthier minds and bodies. Danielle believes coaching can provide a helpful space to be intentional about growth, explore goals and discover potential.

I spent 17 years as a women’s soccer coach at the collegiate level with the last 12 of those years as the Head Women’s Soccer Coach and Associate Professor of Physical Education at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. I left that position to support my partner in his sport coaching career. He is now the Associate Head Women’s Soccer Coach at OSU. I love the process of becoming that happens during the college years and firmly believe wellness coaching can enhance and strengthen this process. Currently, I teach mind/body classes in the PAC (Physical Activity Course) Program at OSU, including Yoga 1 and Relaxation.
