Danielle Rivers’ life has turned out quite differently than what she’d expected when she moved to Jacksonville a few years ago.

“I’m originally from Washington. I came down here about 10 years ago to look for real estate deals for investors,” Rivers said. “I love real estate. I thought it was what I was going to doing for the rest of my life.”

It wasn’t. In 2011, Rivers was assaulted.

“I was jogging down on the Riverwalk when I was attacked by a homeless guy,” Rivers said.

Rivers fought him, and he pulled a knife. She was stabbed 25 times. She survived, and appeared in court to testify against him.
