Danielle joined Jackson Spalding after learning the ropes at two smaller boutique agencies. She is a key member of our Delta Air Lines team and has been imbedded there since 2008 to support worldwide marketing communications. In addition, she contributes significantly to internal communications, direct marketing, corporate communications and issues management initiatives at the airline.
Highlights of her recent Delta work include the dedication of a 777 to the City of Atlanta in honor of Delta’s 70th anniversary and support for two fast-moving employee relations campaigns focused on flight attendants and the airport customer service team. 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.
Danielle earned her Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the University of Georgia, where she majored in Public Relations and minored in Spanish. A Dean’s List student, she was named a Presidential Scholar for hitting a 4.0 grade point average during two semesters.
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. While still in school and beyond, she worked on the account activation team for MBNA MasterCard, promoting the credit card at major spectator events.
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 in Italy.
Closer to home, Danielle enjoys playing with her dogs, Lola and John Doe, the latter 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.
