Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, raised in Ohio and California, I got my start playing drums, singing and playing keyboards in various bands after graduating high school.
It wasn’t until I learned how to play drums from Joe Santoro, back up drummer for Deep Purple, when music played a vital role in my life. After graduation, I performed in a band called “Paradise” in Ohio and other bands here in the Little Rock, Arkansas area. I’ve always been a musician, sang with some great entertainers and met some great people along the way.
Even though I had always been center stage in the music field and graphic design, I had always wanted to be a massage therapist. I have done massage since I was 6 years old and with everything I have done, I will always have a passion for healing and helping people. I have this saying, “I want to heal the world one person at a time”…and I mean it!!
It wasn’t until 2002-2009 when my passion for massage came in to play full force when I worked at The Home Depot Corporate Headquarters in Atlanta, GA. I believe the most stressful department there is Advertising. Many people would come to me for chair massages when they couldn’t take anymore. Before I left to come back to Little Rock, AR in November of 2009, I had 10+ people I helped; whether it be pre-event sports massage, to clients with RA, it didn’t matter…I helped them all!!
I love what I do and it shows in my passion for helping every single person I touch.

“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.
