Denver Metro Site Manager: Danielle (Dani) Kehm
Dani began playing soccer as a child on the east coast and played throughout high school and college.
She has played soccer in over 5 countries and founded and ran several girls’ soccer clubs in areas where soccer was simply not available for girls. She is extremely passionate about providing access to the sport for all!
She began playing as a midfielder. Then moved to right wing, and ultimately shifted to outside defense while in college.
She can (and will) play almost anywhere EXCEPT as a goal keeper – her short stature, fear of the ball to the face, and general lack of goalie skills prevent this.
Dani continues to enjoy the sport and plays multiple times a week around Denver Metro area including teams with MSL.
Her current goals are to keep enjoying the game, improve her ball control, and continue to make great friendships through the game of soccer. If you see her on the field, you’ll probably also see her beloved pup, Loki who has become an unofficial team mascot. If you see either one of them, please come say hi–both are friendly!
As part of the MSL team, Dani is bringing her passion and commitment to help MSL transition and bring about the needed progress to the Denver Metro Leagues.
