Born a Jersey Girl and raised a Mountain Mama, Danielle made her way down south by chance and ended up making it her home. It started when she attended Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. Right after graduation, Danielle took a job in Columbia, South Carolina – a city she knew very little about but has now called home for over a decade.
Danielle’s career with Chernoff Newman began in 2013 as an interactive designer and front-end developer. Having a design background helped provide an insightful approach to development and user-experience. After six years in that role, Danielle was promoted to Senior Art Director where she works on a variety of accounts including B2B and B2C clients working on award-winning branding, integrated campaign and, of course, interactive projects.
Her passion for advertising is clearly seen through her dedication to the American Advertising Federation (AAF). Through this organization she has been awarded National President of the Year (AAF Midlands, 2014), Member of the Year (AAF Midlands, 2016), National Governor of the Year (AAF District 3, 2020) and is a Silver Medal recipient (AAF Midlands, 2021). She currently serves on the AAF National Board of Directors and was elected the Secretary-Treasurer of the AAF Council of Governors.
Outside of the office, Danielle enjoys playing tennis, riding her Peloton (#RideSalleyRide), and enjoying quality time with her husband, Will, and daughter, Genevieve.
