Originally from the Washington, D.C. area, Danielle is an MBA candidate at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. This summer, she is interning at Google on the Emerging Markets Users and Products team. Prior to business school, she founded a digital marketing startup in Washington, D.C. Even though she didn’t know exactly what she was doing in the beginning, she’s now proud of herself for taking the risk and is grateful for the friends she was able to lean on. Always seeking out the next adventure, she first pivoted to management consulting as a member of Deloitte’s strategy practice before becoming an early member of CapTech’s product innovation team in Atlanta. On campus, she’s now actively involved in amplifying Michigan’s technology ecosystem. She works alongside a team of 5 amazing ladies who are empowering women to launch their own ventures and become investors through Women Who Launch (WWL), providing a voice for black students and alumni.
