Danielle was born and raised in Kingston ON, where sailing was a summer ritual. As she began competing her passion for the sport developed. Danielle got into the 29er skiff when she was 16, and raced at the top of the class in Canada and North America. She attended her first world championship in 2009, where she was exposed to the international fleet. The excitement of sailing has always kept her keen and focused on improving.
