Known as Dani, she worked in the financial sector before realising her passion for health and fitness.
Arriving late to the running scene at 23 years old, Dani sought a coach after some physical and mental adversities, which she openly talks about. She completed her first Melbourne Marathon, going on to do New York and London marathons after having her first child.
After having her second child, Run Like A Girl Australia was born in 2017. Dani wanted to combine her love of running with community, creating an emotionally safe, inclusive & friendly space for anyone who identifies as female.
She specialises in coaching female athletes through training, performance, recovery and nutrition, nurturing the reproductive cycle and hormonal fluctuations. Especially important as a mother of two young girls, and a marathoner herself.
She assist clients with a variety of needs and wants which include gastrointestinal issues; allergies & intolerances; prevention of diabetes & blood disorders; sports nutrition; weight management programs; food preparation and cooking classes, education in nutrition basic; exercise strength & conditioning, prevention, rehabilitation and management; running technique development; endurance coaching and more.
With my Working with Children check, I offer running clinics for children of all ages, helping kids realise the joy that comes from working as a group yet individually. These clinics are also open to families for extra fun!
Dani wants to spread the love and support of the squad to other locations in the near future.
She intends to beat her marathon time of 2:57hrs in 2023 and collect a half marathon PB along the way! Most importantly though, Dani will continue to enjoy the process of training and smiling at everyone along the way!
