Danielle “Dani” Schaffer is a lifestyle blogger, podcast host, educator, activist and mom. Cultivator of kindness, weekend warrior and red-carpet wanderer, she grew up in New York City, earned a master’s degree in education, and taught digital media for almost a decade before shifting her focus to her true passions - family, fashion, home decor and travel - by creating the lifestyle brand City Girl Gone Mom.
Wife to a Navy dentist, and Mom to four, Danielle is a true city girl turned suburban San Diego mom, who captures the ups, downs, struggles and juggles of mommyhood across multiple platforms including The Mom Confidential podcast, citygirlgonemom.com website and her social channels on Instagram, Facebook and TikTok.
In late 2018, Danielle lost her only brother – Scott – to an overdose at the age of 33. Scott was just one case in tens of thousands of Fentanyl related deaths in our country over the past year. According to a National Vital Statistics System report recently published from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Fentanyl is now the drug most frequently involved in overdose deaths in the U.S.
Danielle serves as an advocate for breaking gender stereotypes, and she is a champion and spokesperson for combating the opioid crisis.
She presently lives in San Diego with her husband, their four children and three dogs.
