About Animal Communicator
Danielle MacKinnon

I’m Danielle

All my life, I’ve been super sensitive with a strong connection to the animal kingdom. I remember telling my mother what each of my thirty-two caterpillars was thinking! I could also tell if someone was happy or angry, before I ever met them. No one seemed to understand that I wasn’t making it up and I struggled to make sense of it all until one fateful day in a gym parking lot.

Why don’t you take her to a pet psychic?

Ding ding ding! It was like a bell went off in my mind. I was standing in a parking lot crying on my friend’s shoulder. My beloved little dog had been laid up at the vet for four nights, and we didn’t know why.

When my friend suggested taking her to a pet psychic, it all clicked. That conversation, and the following incredible experience with the pet psychic, changed the trajectory of my life.

Before that, I was a successful project manager at a Fortune 500 company while pursuing my MBA. I’d find myself wondering, ‘Is this really it?” After that first reading with the animal communicator, I had my answer. I left grad school with just 4 classes remaining to complete my MBA, I put things in motion to leave my corporate job, and I began pursuing a business connecting intuitively with animals. I had no idea what was ahead…

I had no idea a six-pound Chihuahua named Jesus would be the one to make me (finally!) accept my life’s purpose

Jesus, a feisty little Chihuahua, was peeing in the plants in his humans’ kitchen and needless to say, they were angry. I connected with Jesus energetically, and when I mentioned the plant in the kitchen, he let it all out.

Jesus told me that he only peed in the kitchen when the husband hit his wife. He had an Animal Soul Contract with the woman, and it was his job to help her learn how to take care of herself.

I threw my hands in the air and surrendered. My life’s calling wasn’t only to work with animals; it was to work with them to help people.

If you’re wondering if you have the “gift”, I’m here to tell you, you do

If you’ve been reading along, nodding your head, you belong here. You may even suspect that you have the gift (you do!), and want to discover how to explore your intuition and communicate with the creatures (animal and human) that mean the most to you.

My down-to-earth, fun, and flexible teaching style empowers you to look at yourself and animals in a whole new way. You’ll learn why animals are in your life and what they’re here to teach you. With practice, you’ll also gain confidence and believe more strongly in yourself than ever before.

The result?

You’ll be a calmer, lighter, more centered person, better able to take on life’s inevitable ups and downs.

Embarking on this path can be daunting, but you’ll never be alone. You’ll instantly become part of a community of friendly, passionate, and supportive people who share the same hopes and insecurities you may have as you take this journey.
