“I had a wonderful coaching session with Danielle and had a great audition.
She is the best! She really helps you get prepared for it all.
I highly recommend you check her out, even if you have been doing this for a while. She is a breath of fresh air”

Yvette Cason
A Wrinkle in Time (2018)

“After being overlooked as an actor in Chicago, Danielle helped me develop great auditioning skills and confidence. She builds her students up. She is straight, no chaser and all love.
I was offered representation by 3 top talent agencies and signed with the one that was the best fit for me. Her coaching matched with my faith and hustle made me unstoppable. I love Danielle and she represents all the good things this world and industry has to offer."

Rashida "Sheedz" Olayiwola

Insecure (HBO), Empire (FOX), Late Show with Stephen Colbert

"I only got as many callbacks as I did for the "Insecure" pilot because of Danielle. After just an HOUR of working with her on this character, we created my own version of him that leapt off the page. She's keenly aware of what makes you YOU and how that can best inform the character. I found myself making choices beat by beat that I wouldn't have thought of without her. She's a genius."

DK Uzoukwu
Insecure (HBO), The Brave (NBC)

"Danielle is an amazing coach! She has coached me for many auditions, but most recently for a Tony Award Winning regional theater callback that I have been wanting to book for a very long time! We worked through the beats and she really pushed me to the next level. I felt so confident and prepared. And I'm so proud to say that I booked the show and I couldn't have done it without her. I tell all my actors friend to coach with her!"

Angela Alise
The Wolves (Goodman Theatre 2018)

"It is from a truly genuine place, when I say that working with Danielle has been a dream come true. Within a year of our first meeting, I've been signed by Big Mouth Talent, auditioned for multiple commercials, written my own solo show and learned more than I would ever have dreamed of about entertainment and more importantly, about myself...It is truly unimaginable to look at how far I've come along and how she was able to push me to believe in myself and accomplish all things. I was even lucky enough to be her FB friend and let me tell you, even her posts are top notch!  All the thanks Danielle!"

Dame Grant
Stand Up Comedian

“To my fellow actors, if you need coaching, I can't recommend Danielle enough. She has come through for me in so many ways. From just being able to pick apart a scene and give life to it, speak in ways that give you something to do and not just "theorize" a scene to no end. Plus, she'll Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangout, heck my internet-less self did an over the phone session and it was still on point. I'm telling you, try her!”

Ginneh Thomas

NIPSCO (National Campaign)

“Danielle is the reason I got callbacks at all of my grad school auditions and ultimately got into  the University of San Diego/Old Globe MFA Acting program. She'll bring out the truth in every thing you'll do while working with her. Highly recommended! You'll win!”

Jamal Douglas
The Quiet Room (2017)

"Danielle has so much knowledge of the acting business and I am feeling more inspired than ever thanks to her. LA/NY/Chicago (even Tokyo) actors, if you need a coach, new monologue or career advice, hit her up! I'm so glad I finally did."

Eileen McHugh
Disneyland Tokyo

“Y'all, let me tell you about this magical unicorn named Danielle! I had the BEST life/goals/acting coaching session with her! Seriously, she's so knowledgeable, professional and AMAZING! If you're an actor, hit her up! For real! From career coaching to audition coaching, she does it all!”
