Fun Facts
  • Danielle picked up a love of bungee jumping when she did her first ever jump over a river while at a conference in Whistler, Canada (see above image). She is seeking out where her next jump will be…
  • Danielle has a minor dog obsession, however, she has a cat whom she found as a kitten on a night out in Glasgow. Lola (the cat) has been brought up to be more dog-like and sits for treats on command!
  • When she was younger, Danielle competed in Modern Pentathlon events for Great Britain (running, riding, fencing, shooting & swimming). She is still a keen runner and enjoys the odd half marathon race for charity.
