Danielle started running when she was 12 because she wanted to break 9 minutes in the P.E. mile, and has been hooked ever since. After graduating from Los Gatos High School, she competed for Stanford while obtaining a BS in Product Design. Danielle says, "I love giant group runs, long tempos, and that feeling on the starting line when everything becomes quiet." 

Fun Fact: Danielle is working on a coterminal master's degree at Stanford in Mechanical Engineering
