Danielle writes: “I have been involved in sports for as long as I can remember. I was a three-sport athlete throughout high school and decided to pursue a golf career at Viterbo University. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport Management and Leadership. I then went on to pursue a Masters Degree at Mount Mercy University where I served as the Graduate Assistant for Sports Information. After completion in May 2020, I continue to reside in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and have taken on the role of Head Women’s Golf Coach and Sports Information Assistant.
