Campus office: 227 A Nichols Hall

Dr. Danielle LaGree joined the A.Q. Miller School fall of 2017. She teaches principles of PR, strategic communication research methods and advanced strategic communication writing, among other courses, in the strategic communication sequence. One of her favorite aspects of her job is advising the K-State chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). Her research interests include understanding the professional identity development of early-career women in PR, strategic communication leadership, and career understanding/professionalization of the PR field.

Dani received her Ph.D. from the Missouri School of Journalism with an emphasis in strategic communication. She has a strong and diverse professional background in public relations in the Greater Kansas City area. She managed digital communications and online content strategy for a national, direct-selling fashion brand. She also coordinated business development initiatives for PR and advertising agencies. Her time on the board of the Greater Kansas City Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) allowed her to build strong relationships with industry professionals.

A Missouri native, Dani is grateful to continue her Midwest residency in Manhattan with her husband, Matt, and their son, Lewis (and their dogs, Ruby and Lakota).
