Beyond Danielle’s highly skilled experience in higher education, she exudes confidence and enthusiasm for helping others in professional development and beyond. Over the past several years, I’ve seeked Danielle’s help when discussing my career and she used her strategic expertise to guide me on communicating my strengths to future employers. In addition, she also helped me negotiate a higher salary at my last position by providing market research sources as well as reminding me of the inequity women, especially women of color, face in the workplace. This helped me advocate for my needs and was a lesson I take with me outside the workplace. Danielle not only actively listens, she encourages you to recognize your strengths and shows you can use this in the workplace and beyond. Her impact has gone beyond just supporting me as I use her lessons with my friends and family. I highly recommend Danielle’s services and continually come to her when I need support.

Danielle is the person who you want by your side when you are going through the college process. She’s the best ally and advocate you could ask for in a process that can be stressful and overwhelming. Furthermore, college admission practices and policies are constantly changing and it can be overwhelming to track them all, but Danielle is so well-connected and knowledgeable that she will make sure you have the latest and most accurate intel!

Danielle was great at assisting my application to my first job after finishing my training program. She was instrumental at helping hone language within my resume and application to fit the job description and prepared me well for the interview. I got the job and I know where to turn to if i decide to move jobs in the future. After I got the offer, she again assisted with helping navigate the nerve wracking negotiation process to ensure that I was getting what I needed from the new position both in financial benefits as well as help identify values that were important beyond compensation. I requested these items and they were honored by my new employer. You don't get what you don't try and ask for!
