Daniela was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. She moved to Denver, Colorado when her family emigrated in 2010. She attended the University of Colorado at Denver and graduated with a bachelor’s in science. Dani got introduced to pathology when she began working as a laboratory assistant while attending college, and after a couple of years became a certified histotechnologist. After working in the field for a few years she ended up working as a traveling histotech in New Orleans where she learned about the new Pathologists’ Assistant program at Tulane so she decided to apply. When Dani is not studying you might see talking to her family, catching up on her favorite crime podcasts, watching "The Office" or hanging out with her boyfriend, his son and their two highly energetic pups.
