Hi, my name is Dani…and I’m pretty much a big deal.
OK that’s not exactly true… but I’m a big deal to these folks:
That’s my gorgeous little family. The people I love the most and who drive me the most insane. John is my longtime love, science nerd, fixer of all things, biggest cheerleader and best friend that I got to marry. Rohan (2012) is my eternally curious, space obsessed comedian with quick wit who challenges us daily. Kaya (2014) is my fearless wordy adventurer who is always singing and doing something to injure herself. We recently left Manhattan and settled in “rural” south Florida so we’d have more space to play….and also because: warm. I write about my family liberally here and am excited to have more experiences and adventures with them to share soon.
As for me: I am a coffee loving extrovert, Game of Thrones obsessive, usually laughing, almost never not talking, NYC to the bone, corny joke cracking, mom raising the tiny humans in the pic above and growing my business(es). My passion (outside of my family, fitness and travel) is empowering women to live happier, healthier lives and it manifests through my freelance writing gigs, wellness coaching practice and web-based talk show, Girl Talk. I’m a helper by nature and realized that all the legs of my business are focused on giving women the push toward greatness as they define it.
I hold a B.S. in Health, a life coaching certification from NYU and will eventually complete my lapsed M.S. in Counseling-Marriage & Family Therapy….well….maybe. (omg don’t tell my dad I said maybe!) I’m into people at large, laughter and positive energy, hair care, wellness and healthy living, parenting on purpose, traveling with and without my family, working out (these gains bro), connecting through the written word, practicing the law of attraction and just being the best me I can be while cheering you on to do the same (corny, but so true!).

ABOUT THE BLOG
OKDani.com started in 2009 as a catch-all for my hair care and acting pursuits chatter. It was a hobby then and is now my business. It morphed into an African American mommy blog and has now evolved and settled into a positive lifestyle blog skewed toward family, wellness and travel. This space exists to inspire women to live more positively, to relate, educate and entertain *cough* edu-tain if you will *cough*. The vibe is upbeat, inclusive and 100% real. 100% candid.
(If you’re looking for the “perfect” mommy blogger, perfect angels in starched white clothing, you’ll have to look elsewhere. My life is so not a pinnable image. ….and sometimes I cuss.)
What you will find is an honest take on (and tips for) everything that today’s busy modern work at home mom/mompreneur/doer of all things has to consider in her full-to-the-brim life. This ranges from engaged marriages and intentional motherhood to finance and fitness, personal development and beyond. My stance is, you CAN have it all and be happy at the same time. #itsallaboutperspective #teamtakeiteasyonyourself
Fun fact: “OK, Dan” is my mother’s codespeak for “please stop talking now, Danielle” because she’s too sweet to just say “omg shutup already!”… So fitting for the name of my blog, eh? 🙂 I can’t help it, I just love to share and meet new folks. OKDani.com readers are all my friends in my head and I love bringing my stories and experiences to to them through this medium.
