Born in Atlanta, GA and raised in Dallas, TX, her beauty is owed to her diverse lineage. Her mother is of Spanish, African-American, and American Indian (Cherokee) descent, while her father is of British and Irish. Danielle received her BA in journalism from Southern Methodist University, where she also became an esteemed member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.
Danielle, a triple threat as an Actress, Singer and Dancer, studied under the direction of the legendary Debbie Allen in various forms of dance, and also had the privilege of starring in Allen's musical stage production of "Pepito's Story". At the age of nine she was cast as a series regular on the popular children's television show, "Barney & Friends". Danielle would earn her next series regular role in Hulu's hit Latin based original series "East Los High" playing the role of a teen mother Ceci Camayo. Danielle's stellar performance as Ceci would earn her an Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Performer in a New Approaches Drama Series in 2015.
Danielle continues to light up the big and small screens while enjoying motherhood in real life!
