Danielle Shapiro

Senior Writer

Danielle is the Senior Writer at JLH Strategies. With close to two decades of experience as a journalist, writer and editor Danielle has learned how powerful great storytelling can be to foster change and make a material difference in people’s lives. During the course of her career, Danielle has worked in a variety of roles and has honed an extensive skill set. She can craft newspaper and magazine stories, op-eds, speeches, newsletters, communications and marketing materials, white papers, website content and more. She is an assiduous editor and fact-checker and makes a point of never missing a deadline. She is careful to tailor every piece of writing to the unique needs of her clients and works to help them develop their voice so they can share their message effectively.

Born and raised in Chicago, Danielle attended Brown University before completing a master’s in human rights law at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. But law was ultimately not the right career for her. So, she then completed another master’s at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. After finishing her degree, she worked as an education reporter at a small daily newspaper in New Jersey. She then started freelancing, chasing stories throughout the world and the United States in places like India, Liberia, the Eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nepal, Indonesia, Libya, and El Salvador. Her focus throughout was on human rights, women's rights, social justice, children's lives, public health, travel and more. Her work has appeared in print and online publications including The Daily Beast,, The Christian Science Monitor, Inside Jersey Magazine, Powder Magazine, and others.

Danielle lives in Jackson, Wyoming, with her daughter, Esme. And when she’s not at her keyboard, the two of them can be found in the mountains by foot, bike or ski, on a horseback, or hopping a plane for adventures further afield.
