One fascinating fact that you may not guess from looking at our 5 foot 4 inch speaker is that she played semi-professional basketball for a team sponsored by Bayer Aspirin when she lived in German. She once took on Magic Johnson with 4 friends in a pick up game in East Lansing but despite being outnumbered, Magic still managed to win the contest. Danielle is trying to revitalize her career out of retirement by coaching 4-5 graders at the Royal Oak Salvation Army Community Center.
