Manager of Corporate Responsibility at Jackson National Life
Danielle Robinson works daily to help support and grow the local community. Robinson is the manager of corporate responsibility at Jackson National Life Insurance, where she works to guide the company in making generous contributions to nonprofits. She works with many nonprofits that focus on kids and seniors, like Boys and Girls Club or Elle’s Place, as well as Meals on Wheels and the Alzheimer’s Association. Danielle loves her job and says that it is a perfect fit for her.
Her most recent project for Jackson is raising funds for the Jackson Teen Zone. Jackson made the initial investment with the support from their employees’ contributions. Jackson then met their contribution two to one. The Jackson Teen Zone will open in June and help many kids with homework and financial literacy, but will also be a great place for them to hang out.
“My work time and my free time are blurred, but I love it,” explained Robinson. Robinson is also on the board for Capital Region Community Foundation, continuing her work to support many of the nonprofits throughout Lansing. But when she isn’t helping people, she’s singing in the choir at St. Parish or learning to cook new dishes to share with her husband. “I love to cook and try new food. Lately we’ve been making Indian food and it’s super fun,” said Robinson.
