As a first-generation American, Danielle has always believed in the phrase, “to whom much is given, much is expected.” Her father fled a dictatorship in Havana as a teenager, and her mother and grandparents immigrated from Buenos Aires to the U.S. for better economic and educational opportunities. From a young age, Danielle’s parents instilled in her the importance of giving back, which sparked her passion for public service.
Danielle began her career in the public sector working for the state office of her United States Senator. With a degree in Government and Public Policy from Dartmouth College, she wanted the opportunity to help improve her community both at the local and national levels. Through her work in communications and community outreach, Danielle interacted with hundreds of constituents across the state and helped the office bring to life national policies so they resonated in both the community and in households.
After earning her Masters in Public Administration, Danielle shifted her focus to the nonprofit sector. Most recently, she served as the director of member services for the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York, where she managed communications with the organization’s 1,500 nonprofit, corporate and individual members. Danielle’s work concentrated on helping organizations run more effectively and efficiently, thereby improving their ability to achieve their missions and communicate their impact.
In her current role of engagement manager, Danielle supports Thaler and Jay in their consulting, speaking and coaching activities. She manages operations and logistics and digs into details, so that clients can focus on their impact and vision. Danielle is an active volunteer in her community and serves on the board of directors of the Jubilee Center, an organization dedicated to helping underserved children and families in Hoboken, New Jersey. She also has the brand new title of proud mom.
