If you’ve got a demanding feature, important donor interview, time-consuming admissions campaign, or a complex faculty research paper that needs decoding and amplifying, I am here to help. In fact, I’d love to partner with your team any time you need an extra hand with projects!
I have interviewed more than 250 students, alumni, faculty, administrators, and thought leaders in the higher ed space. My clients include Harvard University, MIT, Wellesley College, Tufts University, Endicott College, University of Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business, Boston Architectural College, North Bennet Street School, and Wentworth.
As a journalist, I’ve had bylines in The New York Times, The Atlantic, and The Washington Post. Prior to launching my writing career, I managed nonprofits in the Middle East and Africa.
I'm reliable, imaginative, obsessively well-organized, and follow a rigorous creative process.

-Feature and profile writing for magazines or digital platforms
-Impact reports to help get you that next round of funding
-Institutional advancement stories, donor profiles and interviews

"Danna was my go to freelance writer for covering our alumni profiles. She was so great at connecting topics seamlessly and making stories standout in the way I was hoping they would. Danna is great at covering complex, heavy lift stories that require multiple interviews and extra research to take it to the next level."
-Brandi Wampler, Senior Content Specialist, University of Notre Dame -Mendoza College of Business
"Danna is a once-in-a-lifetime get. An editor's dream. I've worked with Danna for more than a year now and her reliability, organization, adherence to deadlines, and passion for what she does makes her one of my favorite writers again and again. She is also a thorough communicator, brings ideas to the table, and is someone I trust implicitly. My job is easier because I have Danna in my corner."
-Sarah Sweeney, Director of Content & Communications at Endicott College
"I've had the pleasure of working with Danna for a few years now and she has become my go-to for freelance writing assignments. Her vast experience, organizational skills, and professionalism makes every writing assignment a breeze. Danna takes the time up front to really understand the audience and desired goal of each project. Everyone she interviews reports enjoying their experience and it's apparent she is enthusiastic about the subject matter and makes real connections with interviewees. Every project we've worked together on has been completed on time and within the clear budget set at the start. I'd highly recommend Danna for your freelance writing needs!"
