Personal

Dani lists her hobbies as going to church and the beach, rowing, playing guitar and ukulele, and hanging out with her friends and family. She chose rowing because it was the only sport a coach would let her play with Erb’s Palsy in her arm. Her parents are the most influential people in her sporting career because they have worked hard their entire lives and always stay humble, persevere through setbacks and put God first.
