Danielle started off as an intern for Renaissance the summer before her senior year of college. She loved it so much that she started working at Renaissance full-time just a few months after she graduated suma cum laude from Eastern University with a degree in interpersonal communications. She began as the social media coordinator and created different social media pages for Renn but now wears many hats for the company. When she is not managing social media for the company or Joe B, she is either working on Key Life, Nielsen, Sight and Sound or one of our current events.
