Darryle is a writer, inspirational speaker, and role model for resilience, who titled her TED talk, blog and upcoming book  I never signed up for this…. in honor of all the times in her life she’s said those words.

An early adopter of social media and blogging, Darryle is also a leading voice for women whose writing appears on websites including the Huffington Post, Scary Mommy, Purple Clover, and as BlogHer Voice of the Year.  

Her remarkable breast cancer journey was a major feature in MORE magazine; her many cancer-related activities including serving on the Blogger Advisory Council for the American Cancer Society.  Reinventing herself as a mosaic artist evolved out of her cancer journey; and she helps others put together their own “broken pieces” through workshops called Peace by Piece.

An experienced content creator in all forms of media, Darryle co-founded WHOA! Network, (Women Honor Our Age); and is an inspiring representative and supporter of women’s vitality at any age.   Formerly an award-winning television reporter and anchor for CBS stations in Miami and Los Angeles, Darryle graduated from Yale as a member of the first class that included women.
