Dani, hailing from Highland, Utah, graduated from Utah State University with a BS in journalism and a minor in art history. The plan was to become an art critic at some exotic area in Europe but then she discovered public radio during an internship at UPR. After graduation, she worked for the LDS Church's radio station called the Mormon Channel. After 2 1/2 years there, she was drawn back to Logan to be a full-time employee at Utah Public Radio. She handles the UPR website and all its social media platforms, as well as sharing the newsroom load with Kerry Bringhurst. She also produces various UPR original series.
She believes everything in life can be related back to a Seinfeld episode.
