Dani joined KWCH in Spring of 2011 as a sports reporter and CIK reporter in the Dodge City area. While in Western Kansas she was awarded the KAB non-metro sportscaster of the year.

She moved to Wichita and joined the Eyewitness Sports team in 2013.

She was born in Chicago but spent a lot of her childhood in Melbourne, Australia. Her roots; however, are firmly planted in Fort Worth, Texas where she attended Central High School and played varsity volleyball, basketball, softball and was elected Prom Queen.

Her first love is football. She played women's professional football for the Dallas Diamonds at receiver and running back for five seasons. She was a captain, three-time Pro Bowler and 2008 Super Bowl Champion. Ask her to show you her championship ring sometime. It's hard to miss. She was also a member of the first Women's World Championship team that competed in Stockholm, Sweden. They beat Canada in the gold medal game 69-0. On top of it all, she hosted the Dallas Diamonds weekly coaches show.

She graduated from Oklahoma State University with a double major. She has a B.S. in Broadcast Journalism and a B.S. in Audio and Video Production with a minor in Zoology.

She also did freelance work with ESPN, FOX Sports, the OKC Thunder and various MMA events during her time at OSU. She also has a passion for writing and worked countless hours on the OSU football beat for the Cowboys' O'Collegian.

Her faith and her family come first. She would not be where she is today without them. An active member of her church, she hopes to continue her spiritual journey in Wichita with her husband, Bradly.

She loves to workout, read, surf, snowboard, travel, and play any coed sport sport she can. Spending time with her family and friends is what she is most passionate about.
