Danielle obtained her undergraduate degree in Psychology and Brain Sciences from Dartmouth College, New Hampshire. As a member of the prestigious Ivy League, Dartmouth provided Danielle with an excellent education. Few institutions can provide an equivalent in recognition and quality, largely as a result of the academic rigor and high expectations. Anyone who studies under such demanding circumstances must be persistent, focused and committed to excellence.
Danielle continued reaching for higher goals, earning her Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Phoenix. This has provided her with the analytical framework such as: risk assessment, strategic planning and cost-benefit analysis that she applies in various situations for each and every one of her clients.
Danielle has achieved a high level in both education and athletics. Danielle’s earliest accomplishments began with being selected to compete at the 1999 Canada Winter Games as a member of Team BC. She then secured a hockey scholarship to play NCAA Division 1 hockey at Dartmouth College where she played with some of the best players in the nation. Her collegiate career had many highlights including being a 2 time Ivy League Champion and 2 time NCAA Frozen Four member. Danielle’s playing career subsequently led her to Switzerland to play professional hockey for two years.
Danielle knows what it takes to compete at the highest level. Commitment, dedication and work ethic are the foundation of high performance on and off the ice. Achievement in athletics requires discipline, focus and sustained effort. These character traits are ingredients for success in virtually any field, but are even more crucial in the real estate industry. Although, Danielle has left her collegiate and hockey career behind, she now competes in a different field – the real estate arena!
DANIELLE FEATURED ON POWER OF PLAY
In 2014, Danielle, along with friend Sasha Podolchak, founded the Grindstone Award Foundation, a registered Canadian charity. Knowing how important sports can be but realizing that many parents face financial barriers, the Grindstone Award Foundation was born. The goal is to provide financial aid to female hockey players who have a strong desire to play but need some help to get there.
Fortunate to have enjoyed so many positive experiences enabled by hockey, Danielle continues to give back to enrich the lives of other athletes. Six years ago, Danielle created Grundy’s Grind – a hockey camp specifically for female hockey players. Operating eight various camps and instructing over 600 participants, Danielle actively provides opportunities for female hockey players to learn and grow. For three years, Danielle was the Head Female Development Coach for Kelowna Minor Hockey Association – working on skill development with all the female teams within the association. Most importantly, Danielle strives to be a positive role model; encouraging and promoting the same valuable life skills that she learned through athletics.
