Danielle joined Jackson Spalding in 2006 after learning the ropes at two smaller boutique agencies. She is a key member of our Delta Air Lines team, leading efforts to support worldwide marketing communications, internal communications and issues management initiatives.
Highlights of her Delta work include the dedication of a 777 to the City of Atlanta in honor of Delta’s 70th anniversary, creating sophisticated email marketing campaigns to promote Delta’s flights around the world and serving as an embedded consultant for a time. Danielle approaches all of this high-flying work with a lot of passion because jet fuel runs in her DNA. Both her husband and father are Delta Air Lines employees, which means she is one well-traveled woman.
Inside JS, Danielle is a sought-after mentor who also serves on our Leadership Team, and is an active member of our facilitation and multicultural services teams. Danielle earned her Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the University of Georgia, where she majored in Public Relations and minored in Spanish. During college she landed a coveted 5-month internship in the Corporate Communications Department of BMW Manufacturing in Spartanburg, S.C.- a position that gave her an excellent grounding in event management, government relations and marketing communications.
She’s always enjoyed a love for world travel. She has jumped the Guinness Book of Records’ tallest bungee jump in South Africa, explored the depths of the Red Sea on the Sinai Peninsula and tied the knot with her husband, Michael, in a historic church on the Amalfi Coast in Italy.
Closer to home, Danielle spends time with her husband, three children and her dog, John Doe, who was aptly named after his rescue from a local shelter. She continues to bone up on her Spanish in anticipation of her next great global excursion.
