Danielle, whom also goes by, Dani, was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago. From an early age, she displayed a strong creative flair for art and self-expression. From art class and dance recitals to modeling for commercials and print, then moving to work on the other side of the camera… she has covered the spectrum. To complete her bachelor’s degree in nursing and psychology, she moved to Milwaukee, WI and quickly found work on a number of projects. She was the head of Blush Beauty, Inc. operations, makeup and bridal department from 2012 to 2016 and is very involved with community events and relations. Breaking away from nursing upon completion of college, Dani moved into what she has considered her true calling. The world of beauty was a simple transition, based upon her strong understanding of light, color, and form. After continued makeup education and training, this passion combined with precise application, a steady hand and attention to detail, Dani’s flawless makeup results quickly got her noticed. She has since worked on fashion shows in New York, Chicago and Milwaukee and continues to focus on bridal makeup, print, commercial and advertising nationwide. After excelling with makeup rather quickly, and New York Fashion Week under her belt, it left her wanting more. She returned to school at the Aveda Institute of Beauty and Wellness in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for a full cosmetology degree and graduated at the top of her class. She currently also works behind the chair at Scottfree Salon in downtown Milwaukee and Mequon after studying under Scott Yance (owner) and apprenticing Education Director and Lead Stylist Jasna Vasilic. “You can never be overdressed or over educated,” she says, as she also recently added Lash Extensions to her certifications. Her desire has always been a “one-stop shop”…to be the “go-to girl” in the world of beauty! “I believe honesty is what makes me stand out; Solving, not just selling.
