Coach Danielle started swimming competitively in seventh grade with the Forest Lake Girls Swim Team. She swam the 400 and 200 Free Relays consistently through her six year career with Forest Lake and tried the 500 her Junior year at the request of Head Coach Rochelle. She found that she really loved the 500 and continued to swim that throughout the rest of her swimming career. Danielle did not continue to swim competitively in college but did swim occasionally to relieve the stress of college.
The summer of 2016 Danielle coached the Blue team here at the YMCA before becoming the coach of the Forest Lake Girl's Seventh and Eighth grade team where she had three girls qualify for JV sections. Danielle is currently coaching Forest Lake Girl's C Squad.
A piece of advice that Danielle has for the swimmers would be, "Try what your coaches suggest. You may not love a stroke or a race but your coach sees something in you or in your stroke that makes them think that event would be good for you. If I'd never tried the 500 when Rochelle had asked I'd never have known how much I loved it."
When she's not at the pool Danielle enjoys reading, playing with her black lab and spending time with friends and family.
