Danielle is always looking for ways to use the lessons of the past to pave the way to a better future.
Inspired by her grandparents who survived the Holocaust, Danielle serves on the Young Professional Committee at the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center and co-chaired their Summer Soiree in 2017. She also volunteers with Maot Chitim, JUF Tikkun Olam Volunteer Network, and organizes a holiday toy drive for JCFS each year.
Ambitious in her professional life and as a volunteer, Danielle is also on the JUF Young Women's City Council, where she is currently serving on the executive committee. She has co-chaired JUF's Empower event, and participates in JUF's Professional Women's Network, where she mentors women in their careers.
During the pandemic, Danielle stayed in touch with Holocaust survivors to mitigate loneliness and used her expertise in property tax law to help struggling small businesses stay afloat.
