"Today I am in control because I want to be. I have my fingers on the switch, but have lived a lifetime ignoring the control I have over my world. Today is different" -A.S. King
I’m Danielle, your new best friend! I believe we should all live a well crafted life, a life aligned with the way we want to feel, EVERY SINGLE DAY. I believe in blurring the lines of life and work, not trying to balance the scales of a compartmentalized existence. I’ve seen first hand the benefit of making life and career choices that are congruent with one’s values and dreams.
I’ve spent an entire lifetime following a path of what’s “supposed” to come next. Twenty years in business from startups to global corporations, working with athletes to food makers. Never once during those 20 years did I ask myself if it was something I’d choose if I could consider designing the life I wanted to live. And when it all came to an end, and I asked myself “ What’s next?”, I didn’t know where to begin. The greatest gift I could have been given in that moment would have been someone to hold my hand and walk me through the uncertainty as I learned that the most important thing I could do for myself and my family was to design my ideal lifestyle. I want to be that gift for you.
I'm here to help you Align + Design the lifestyle that you dream of. Days and nights and relationships (business and personal) that make you feel the way you want to feel. I will help you discover how you want to live (your HOW), then we will design your ideal lifestyle (your WHAT) together and strategize and set goals (your HOW) to reach it. You will walk away with clarity, tools and all the love and support you need to live the lifestyle you have designed.
I consider myself so lucky to have the ability to help others join their personal desires and professional realities. Even more fortunate to be trusted to help them walk through the process, step-by-step.
As a facilitator I am focused on you and your process. I am here to motivate and guide you through a journey. I have the ability to view things from afar and shed light on areas that you may be too close to see. Our work together will be a collaboration. And with your determination and my enthusiasm and supportive guidance, you will live the life you were meant to live.
I have worked with many types of people, including CEOs, athletes and designers. But of all the people I've worked with, my favorite collaborators have been those who have the drive to realize a vision that is uniquely her own. Your lifestyle is uniquely yours. There are no rules of “should” be. Make it what you want it to be.
WHO AM I?

- A writer of bite-sized bits, dreaming of far away destinations that encourage wine, exploration and naps.
- An evangelist of inspired ideas, always looking for fun, funny, healthy and happy people.
- I am an expert in "herding cats”. Project management has been a geeky pleasure of mine.
- I love music + dance, wandering cities + people watching.
- Sometimes (most times) I prefer “crappy” flavored coffee from my Keurig to a high end espresso drink from a fancy Italian machine. However, I do love a beautiful city café experience.
To a life well lived!
