Danielle joined the Americans for the Arts web team in March 2012. A sixth-generation Baton Rouge native, Danielle graduated from Louisiana State University with a degree in mass communications and Spanish. After moving to DC in July 2010, she worked as the website and communications coordinator for the Animal Welfare Institute. In 18 months, she overhauled and migrated the organization’s website to an open-source CMS, grew its social media presence by 200 percent, and nearly doubled the e-mail blast list. Danielle has a love for print and web design, as well as Picasso’s Guernica, which she traveled to see twice during her time abroad in Spain.
