Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
"The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night."
"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!"
The Wolves (Goodman Theatre)
"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!"
Stand Up Comedian
"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."
Insecure (HBO), The Brave (NBC))
“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”
A Wrinkle in Time by Ava DuVernay
"Danielle is the actor's secret weapon. I had an audition for Lynn Nottage's FABULATION, and Danielle went IN! Taping theatre auditions can feel a bit awkward, and there was A LOT of material but Danielle helped me use the camera in a way that allowed the work to showcased in a captivating way. I not only booked the job, I won a Obie Award for it."

“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."
