After 25 years of leadership in faith and community-based organizations, Daniel considers it a privilege to serve in this new role as Chief Executive Officer at Helping Up Mission. He joined HUM in 2018 after their national search for a Chief Operating Officer and worked closely with HUM’s outgoing CEO, Bob Gehman (now President Emeritus) in that role. Daniel’s motivation is rooted in his belief in the focus on life transformation in recovery and the strong collaboration with embedded community partners embodied at HUM. He served in an array of operations, development and executive leadership roles in Virginia, New York and Arizona before joining HUM. In 2009, Daniel earned a Master’s in Public Administration (MPA) in nonprofit management & public policy from New York University’s Wagner Graduate School of Public Service and holds a Bachelor’s degree in History from Indiana Wesleyan University in 1995.
