For those planning and completing applications, Danielle teaches how to acquire the strongest recommendation letters, develop unique personal statements and essays that communicate your background and skills, identify appropriate schools, and network effectively with law school admission professionals, faculty members and attorneys.

Danielle will also be providing support for graduate students. 

I enjoy: everything about the month of October – the weather, changing leaves and Halloween.

My first job after graduation: I did the corporate rotation program at Saks Fifth Avenue. 

An internship/experiential opportunity that helped shape my career path: An internship at a public relations firm showed me that I did not want to work in public relations. Those are the best learning experiences. 

I'm passionate about: Assisting first-generation and BIPOC students.

The place I grew up is special because: It was safe and diverse. I had a wonderful childhood.
