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. After years of working in news and managing UPR's web content, she's now a freelance reporter.
She believes everything in life can be related back to a Seinfeld episode.
