Danielle Rogers

I'm a twentysomething who left my life in Minnesota to attend Drake University, a private liberal arts college in the middle of Iowa. I graduated in 2008, and made the decision to stay in Iowa (partially because one of my internships turned into a full-time job) and haven't looked back since (although I do visit Minnesota as frequently as I can).

I am currently working for The Vernon Company, a promotional product distributor based in Iowa but with account executives throughout the United States (including Guam and Puerto Rico). I knew nothing about promotional products - but I'm learning and loving every second of it! I recently took on a new role as Communications & Training Coordinator, which I am excited about! My main focuses are now:

  • external and internal communcications;
  • digital and social marketing;
  • relationship, branding and identity management;
  • training and education

I'm passionate about the relationships in my life (including my family and friends) but also at the top of my list of passions are sports (hockey, football and college basketball), traveling (I've visited 23 states and visiting all 50 is on my bucket list), music (I recently saw one of the best live concerts I have ever been too - ask me about it sometime) and books (I'm a bit of a bibliophile).
