Owner of On The Run, Danielle was raised on a 5th generation cattle ranch, working the farm with her family as long as she can remember. Taking care of animals, making jam with Grandma, knowing the chores don’t get done if you don’t get up and do them. When clients partner with OTR, they’re partnering with someone with work in their blood; someone whose life and work have been intertwined since birth.
Her professional career began working for Starwood Hotel and Resorts, after years spent in hospitality growing up. She then transitioned to building operations in the start-up scene of SF, and running a bar and restaurant. Add in playing food stylist, impromptu florist, designer, team facilitator, and doing events small and large for the last 4 years... until finally, On The Run Events (OTR) was a reality.
The combination of her very rural upbringing, years in operations, and experience in cosmopolitan settings, means OTR can execute on a wide range of aesthetics with ease, and genuinely care about the work that is done. Danielle does 90% of OTR's florals, signage, and creative design work in house, saving clients both time and money while nailing the brand vision needed.
She is usually found rolling sleeves up and getting dirty to make sure an event goes off without a hitch, but outside of OTR, she is a dog mom to Annabelle, her King Charles Spaniel, (the best production dog, and sidekick), and Managing Partner at a neighborhood bar and restaurant, The Brick Yard. A majority of OTR's work is done around the states, so when she is not traveling and exploring new territory, she can be found running around in her home base of San Francisco.
