Endorsement from LinkedIn:

“A natural and perhaps destined, Danielle was involved with advertising at five years of age in front of a camera lens for picture that would be part of our ad campaign that would reach thousands around the world. I did not know Danielle during her modeling career, but in the past five years here at DeepRock Manufacturing, I have had the pleasure of getting to know her and, working with her in marketing and advertising.

As marketing and advertising director, I depended on Danielle for ad design and layout, market research, press releases, proofing and editing, all of which she proved invaluable skills in technical writing, conceptualization, and communication. It is my observations that lead me to believe that Danielle’s communications skills are naturally destined in a broadly literal sense.

In addition to displaying excellent marketing and advertising skills, Danielle proved to be effective in handling customer calls fielding sales and technical questions that ultimately generated sales. This was not listed as one of her responsibilities, but when a time of need was evident, Danielle was our unexpected solution.

Embodied in her communication skills were her abilities to quickly learn our products, identify with our customer’s problems or needs, and effectively find a resolution for our customers. Danielle is intelligent, dependable, initiating, and quite simply, nice. She is an asset to any organization or team.”

About Me

Communications and marketing specialist with a diverse background. 

I believe that companies should pay special attention to their employees and customers alike. Open lines of communication are a must. If a dialogue is established between a company and its employees and a company and its customers, the company is bound for success. I want to help a company establish these connections. 

I want to be involved in internal and external communications; newsletters, meetings, events, intranets, magazines, advertisements and social media. I'm looking to stregthen current relationships and build new ones.

Previously, I worked as a marketing and customer service specialist at a small manufacturing company in Alabama. After being laid off, I'm looking for employment opportunities in the Columbus, GA or Auburn, AL areas. I have experience in marketing, sales support, customer service, purchasing, production management and administrative duties.

I have a strong interest in internal and external corporate communications, writing, copyediting, marketing, customer relations and social media.
