There's nothing like the beauty of female friendship.

As a former high school teacher turned publicist, Danielle Jackson recognized that girl friends are an issue with everyone from her former teenage students to her C-suite PR clients. Both sought her advice for their struggles in this area, and that's how Friend Forward was born.

Danielle is a certified women's coach specializing in friendship expertise, and she's known for pairing research with real-life to help you experience more joy in your platonic relationships with other women. 

Danielle Jackson's thrilled to see what began as a personal obsession become a media-worthy business... and with a goal of helping women across the world deepen their platonic female relationships, she's only getting started.
