Danielle has managed to turn huge adversity into a successful career as an entrepreneur. A rule change after London 2012 meant that she was no longer eligible to compete as a Paralympian and overnight she lost everything. She decided to channel her energy into helping others, making organisations more inclusive for disabled people and women. She takes a unique slant on diversity and inclusion and has had great success introducing elite performance strategies into that space to ensure everybody is engaged and working as cohesive teams. Danielle loves being able to put something back. So many people helped her achieve her sporting ambitions and she is passionate about helping young people raise aspirations, build confidence levels and make choices that lead to better results.
