Danielle is a serial entrepreneur who works on projects at the intersection of women, business and social impact.
Through her mindfulness startup, Powerbase Meditation, she teaches meditation techniques designed for modern women, and coaches other entrepreneurs and executives.
"While building a career in international business, I spent a decade studying meditation in monasteries and practicing yoga. After years of study, I came to the surprising realization that what women learn in meditation, mindfulness and yoga are actually male-centered practices."
That's why Danielle created the so-called "Powerbase meditation", a meditation expressly for women.
Powerbase is meditation for modern women. Simple techniques designed for the way women are wired.
Powerbase is designed for high-impact women leaders who want to improve their focus, improve emotional self-regulation, and understand how to shift into authentic leadership. These techniques are meant to be carried with you to the boardroom and beyond.
Danielle believes meditation is a critical tool in creating female leaders that are healthy, balanced and authentic. Danielle coaches other female entrepreneurs, founders and executives.
PowerBase Meditation techniques are specifically designed for modern women. The techniques are simple and can be practiced in 5-10 minutes to restore a sense of balance and grounding.
Danielle is dedicated to empowering women through her global work in business and social impact, meditation and personal coaching practice, and public speaking engagements.
