In her administrative role, Danielle serves Sport + Spine patients from the moment they arrive. “I love greeting patients, helping with booking and insurance and making sure all schedules are in sync,” she says. “I love the one-on-one time with patients. Everything we do at Sport + Spine is dedicated to the patient. Everything.”

And Danielle has experienced this strong relationship personally. Her experience with the clinic is not only as part of the staff; Danielle is a patient as well. She was an avid runner and spent all day on her feet in her role at a restaurant, so she visited Sport + Spine to get help with her foot pain. Thanks to dry needling, ASTYM , ART and physical therapy, this avid runner is back on her feet.

She particularly enjoys working at the clinic because it intersects with another goal: she’s currently earning her nursing degree. “I’ve been working toward the degree for some time now and I’ve always wanted to work in the medical field,” she says.

Danielle lives in Prairie Village with her husband and two children. She enjoys spending time with her family, particularly outdoor activities. “When I do have free time, I love doing family things,” she says. “Both my kids are very active, so we love doing outdoor activities whenever we can.” Her husband coaches both of their soccer teams, so Danielle is actively involved on the soccer sidelines too.
