Daniele Baierlein
Principal

With broad experience and wide-ranging relationships on Capitol Hill, Daniele Baierlein works closely with the Podesta Group’s health care, technology, education and defense clients.

In addition to her knowledge of public policy issues, she is an expert on engaging Democratic members of Congress from closely contested districts. Among many successes, she helped a health care coalition improve its relationships with key members of the House of Representatives.

A political buff, Daniele came to the Podesta Group from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, where she was the manager of candidate fundraising services. She also served as finance director for Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) re-election campaign and leadership political action committee. In other campaign experience, she was deputy finance director for Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) for Senate in 2002. Earlier, she served as membership director for the Women’s Leadership Forum at the Democratic National Committee. She began her career as the mid-Missouri field director for the Missouri Democratic Party, directing field efforts for 25 counties in the middle of the state.

When she’s not busy lending a hand on the campaign trail in her free time, Daniele is active in the Hugh O’Brien Youth Foundation, which develops a global community of youth and volunteers who are dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. A native of Long Island, Daniele has a bachelor's in environmental conservation from the University of New Hampshire. While working at the Podesta Group, she earned a Juris Doctor at the Catholic University of America School of Law.
