About Danielle

Strategic Account Manager

After diving into corporate marketing right out of college, Danielle found a niche for herself running marketing campaigns and design work from digital, web, and print. With a strong desire for a faster pace and more challenging environment, she found that opportunity with AK Operations where she is now a Strategic Account Manager specializing in clients with small sales teams. 

Danielle brings a creative touch and design expertise to the AK Operations crew and specializes with exclusive Hubspot clients. After supporting our largest clients alongside the Senior team, Danielle now leads some of our most mature clients and newest clients. Her nonstop hustle and extreme kindness makes her an incredible client lead.

Born and raised in St. Louis, Danielle is always training for a half marathon so you can often find her outside running or at the gym. Her weekends are for relaxing, hanging out with friends, and finding the best new places to eat.

From Amy:

“Since her first day here Danielle has picked up the mission behind our work like it’s second nature.  I am constantly impressed by her motivation and commitment to growing her skill set and driving results for her clients. The crew of women on my team are nothing but impressive, so I am blown away by how quickly she has stepped up and keeps up with the speed in which we move here. I am so thankful I found her young in her career – and I hope to have her here forever.”

“Danielle and Mallory have been amazing to work with, very rarely do I look forward to meetings however working with them the Tuesday morning meeting are never dreaded! Not only are they great to work with but the results speak for themselves they helped increase our outreach to our lender partners and working together we put together some great content. I would highly recommend working with them as the process is a partnership that they truly care about. Thank you.”

George Blezard,


Mallory’s work ethic is unmatched. Need a question answered pronto? Expect a reply within minutes. Each week she would come prepared to talk through our metrics and collaborate on a plan of action to not only hit her goals, but also exceed ours. Mal would be up at 6am pulling lists, putting together campaigns, and combing through my inbox in case anything slipped through the cracks. Not to mention she’s one of the nicests individuals I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Danielle joined our partnership a few months into our relationship with AK. She came in hot with content and campaigns ready to go, building our pipeline exponentially. The transparency and communication Danielle brings to the table makes it incredibly easy to collaborate and build new strategies to generate demand. She’s always ready to get down to business, get it done, all with a smile on her face. She’s been a wonderful addition to our team.

AK Ops has been amazing! They quickly enhanced our HubSpot and created a top of funnel lead machine. Amy and Shelby put together marketing and sales sequences that immediately generated hundreds of MQLs and several meetings. I’m very impressed with the team and am not hesitating to continue working with AK Ops.

The AK team has brought the knowledge where we have gaps. They quickly came into our CRM and company to make immediate improvements to our sales operations. We are about 4 weeks into our partnership with Amy and Krista and already noticing a major impact to our top of the funnel! Specifically, Krista has been amazing. She is attentive to my questions and concerns. I am started to end all of my communications to Krista with, “I so appreciate you”, because I truly, truly do. She has added a great deal of value to our sales team and how we operate. This allows me the time to focus on other revenue generating activities.

“What more can I say about Amy? The results speak for themselves. In a matter of a few weeks she’d completely overhauled our entire approach to demand generation and our sales process, transforming a stale database into an asset that has led to a 3x increase in pipeline chock full of REAL customer opportunities. The future is bright with Amy on our team.”
