A natural writer with a creative mind, Danielle Longley loves being involved in every aspect of the projects she’s a part of—from the client side to strategy and all the different disciplines in between. She’s someone that takes the time to understand different roles and how each one plays into the bigger picture. It’s one of the many reasons she’s such an outstanding account director.
It all started at the Reynold’s School of Journalism where Danielle quickly got sucked into reporting, journalistic writing, creative writing, concepting, and advertising. She took a job at MassMedia as an account coordinator while in school where she developed proposals, copy for ads and websites, creative strategies, and outreach plans. After graduation, the agency side of the work led her to The Glenn Group, and she quickly worked her way up from account coordinator to account executive, managing some of the company’s top client accounts. After playing integral roles in strategic planning and pitches, she headed to Noble Studios, climbing the ranks from project manager to senior project manager, where she was responsible for more than $2 million in project budgets and $1.5 million in annual media spend.
As someone who has always been passionate about travel (she is British after all), she took a position at The University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC). Here, she promoted 50+ study abroad programs worldwide, spearheading website research and discovery projects, managing designers and third-party vendors, and more. But, the itch for agency life kept coming back, and we happily gained her impressive skill set at KPS3 in 2018.
An avid member of the KPS3 running club, someone we credit with teaching us how to grow our own food (she says she doesn’t know what she’s doing, but she absolutely does), a great cook (she’s currently practicing her plating), and a bookworm (actual books please—none of that digital stuff), Danielle runs on a good cup of coffee, fresh air, sunshine, and cuddles from her labradoodle, Clyde.
