While completing her doctoral degree, Danielle was involved in research identifying the efficacy of dance therapy as treatment for symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. Danielle is also certified in LSVT BIG, a customized and holistic treatment protocol designed for people with Parkinson’s disease. Danielle has served as line editor of a published textbook entitled “Physical Activity and Rehabilitation in Life-threatening Illness.” She currently assists with teaching in Oakland University’s entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy program class‘Examination and Evaluation I’.
Danielle’s interest in physical therapy began back in high school when she herself received treatment for injuries related to her time as a competitive dancer. She loved that her care was individualized, and treatment was applied to her specific impairments. Danielle has specialized knowledge of injuries associated with dancers and their movement patterns due to her background as a dancer and her experience as a dance instructor/coach. She loves working with kids and is passionate about treating and educating the younger population, which grew from both coaching and completing her clinical rotations in pediatrics.
Danielle loves traveling and spending time outdoors with her husband and dog. She is an avid hiker and has made a goal to visit all 63 U.S. National Parks. She recently ran her first half marathon and is already looking forward to finding her next challenge.
