"Daniella performed outstanding coalition/consulting work for the Children's Action Alliance. She combines excellent interpersonal and communication skills with knowledge and expertise about public policy processes and issues. Daniella works with high integrity and she is someone who can be counted on for follow-through. She is also a lot of fun to work with!" 

- Dana Naimark, Former President and CEO of Children's Action Alliance

- Molly McGovern, Legislative Director at UFCW Local 99

"Our labor coalition has hired Daniella for the last five legislative sessions. She is very knowledgeable, dedicated, tenacious, and pays attention to every detail. She also pours her heart into her work. Our group of stakeholders has varied priority issues; Daniella has a genuine interest in learning everything possible to best represent our needs. She is thorough and makes sure to get everyone’s perspective. I highly recommend hiring her."

"Daniella managed the lobbying efforts for AZ Wins and the AZ Labor Unity Table. The Arizona Education Association partners with both organizations and we lobbied on common issues for Arizona labor and education. Daniella's knowledge and experience at the Capitol was profoundly helpful as I navigated my first session. She was great a partner for AEA and helped us elevate our presence down at the legislature."

- Stephanie Parra, Former Government Relations Director at Arizona Education Association 

- David Mitchell, Former State Director at AARP 

"Daniella was always on time, went above and beyond objectives agreed to, and provided excellent work and benefit to the community. I highly recommend her."

"For the past three years, Daniella Smith has been the coordinator and lobbyist for the Arizona Retirement Security Coalition, and I have had the pleasure of working with her. Daniella is extremely competent, knowledgeable, and proficient in all aspects of lobbying the Arizona Legislature as well as being a gifted organizer who balances the interests and priorities of the approximately fifteen members of our Coalition. She has an engaging, outgoing personality that charms everyone she meets while working tirelessly on our behalf."

- Joe Carter, AASRA Legislative Liaison  

"Your presentation for the AASRA/DKG Legislative Awareness Day was excellent. Your preparedness with the PowerPoint and working knowledge of our AZ Legislature is superb. The saying, 'You don't want to watch sausage being made,' applies to our state government, but your professional efforts on behalf of ASRS are truly appreciated. Thank you most sincerely." 

- Carrie Snyder, AZ Delta Kappa Gamma
