Danielle Shapiro is a freelance writer and editor with graduate degrees from the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, where she studied international human rights law, and The Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
She worked for two years as an education reporter at a daily newspaper in northern New Jersey and then spent several years reporting about human rights, women’s rights, children’s lives, poverty, conflict, public health and other topics in the developing world. Her reporting trips have taken her to Liberia, the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, India, Indonesia, Libya, and El Salvador, among other places. Although the geographic focus of her more recent journalistic work has been the United States, the topics she covers remain centered on social justice and equality in their many forms. Her writing has appeared in print and online publications including The Daily Beast, ESPN.com, The Christian Science Monitor, Inside Jersey Magazine, the Contently Foundation for Investigative Journalism, and others.
In the last several years, Danielle has taken on projects writing marketing materials, brochures, case studies, and conducting research for think tanks, academic institutions and other organizations. She is also a managing editor at Contently, a content marketing firm, where she supervises other freelance writers and edits their stories for style, tone, grammar, and content.
Danielle lives in Jackson, Wyoming with her daughter. When she’s not at her keyboard, she’s either playing peek-a-boo, hiking up a large mountainside, or skiing back down.
