Danielle completed her undergraduate degree at Kansas State University, where she was the winner of the Aria/Concerto Competition.
Danielle made her Berlin recital debut in 2016 with a program of Schubert lieder. That same year, she joined the Berlin summer music festival International Opera Projects, in their premier season, singing in their gala concert and covering Fiordiligi in their production of Così fan tutte.
