Dr. Dani completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology at Purdue University and later attended National University of Health Sciences, where she obtained her Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Dr. Dani received extensive training in diet and nutrition, kinesiology, and sports management. She is a certified Rock Tape (kinesiology tape) Practitioner, which is used to reduce muscle fatigue and promote blood flow in expecting mothers and athletes.
Dr. Dani was first introduced to chiropractic medicine while still in high school, after a gymnastics injury left her with a severe spinal injury. During recovery, her passion for natural health was born. Dr. Dani found health, healing, and hope from her hometown chiropractor after allopathic medicine claimed surgery and pain medication were her only options. As a result of her personal experience so many years ago, Dr. Dani has dedicated herself and her career to improving the lives of others through chiropractic care. Her whole-body approach to health, healing, and wellness allows her to find the underlying cause of disease and greatly improve the health and quality of life of her patients. Dr. Dani is passionate about disease prevention, and encourages nutritional supplementation, dietary change, exercise, and lifestyle modifications to help nourish and energize the body, which is designed to heal itself.
Prior to chiropractic school, Dr. Dani served in the United States Air Force, with a military specialty in patient care as a dental surgical technician. She headed the oral surgery department while stationed at Aviano Air Base in Italy, and also spent a year at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina. During Chiropractic school, her passion as a veteran led her to serve her country again, when she accepted an extensive apprenticeship at Bay Pines VA Hospital.
Dr. Dani was born and raised in a small town in northwest Ohio — GO BUCKEYES! In her free time, she enjoys running, kayaking, yoga and tries to take advantage of all that sunny St. Petersburg has to offer. She loves photography, DIY projects, and embarking on many travels and adventures with her husband, Ryan, and their chocolate lab, Bella. Dr. Dani and Ryan are very excited to have recently welcomed a beautiful baby girl, Teagan Rae, to their family.
