Hi, I'm Danielle

An eternal student, I love exploring all that life has to offer from perspectives that recognize the myriad of ways that we exist in relationship with the world around us. I feel that examining the way that individuals, cultures, and societies inform, nourish, and raise us is essential to understanding what we must to do thrive as individual and connected beings. 

I am a student of the human condition, of culture, and philosophy. I have done various speaking engagements at colleges and universities on subjects ranging from film (specific to Japan & India), on individual and cultural identity (in Japan), and on the foundations of Āyurveda. I am also a devotee of the Vedic traditions, an Āyurvedic Practitioner, and a Jyotishi (Vedic Astrology) in training.


I am providing a list of some of my certifications and courses here. I have been fortunate to have learned from and studied with some great teachers from the Vedic traditions. There are too many to name, but I am tremendously grateful for the support and knowledge received from my main teachers, Dr. Anusha Sehgal, Kaya Mindlin, & Steven Highburger.
