Danielle knew she wanted to be a veterinarian from a very young age. In grade school, all the students were asked to write a letter to their future self. This letter went forgotten until the day Danielle walked across the stage at the Ontario Veterinary College. Her father gave her the letter and told her to open it. It read that her dream was to become a veterinarian! Prior to attending OVC, Danielle graduated from Seneca College in 2010 as a Registered Veterinary Technician and worked for several years before heading to the University of Guelph to study Animal Biology.

Her professional interests include internal medicine, specifically endocrine and gastrointestinal diseases.

Danielle lives in Smithville with her husband, daughter, and many furry friends. In her spare time, she enjoys getting lost in an Alex Cross novel, going for walks with Klaus and her family and attempting to beat her husband at a game of pool.
