Danielle Gray

Deemed by Valerie Jarrett to be a "rising superstar" Danielle Gray is a former deputy director for the National Economic Council and currently serves as special counsel and cabinet secretary for Obama. In this case, "secretary" means an official who provides advice to members of the president's cabinet. In Gray's case it also means that one day she'll be secretary of an agency in some Democratic president's cabinet, some predict.
