As Area Representative, Dan is responsible for coordinating the foster/adoptive parent recruitment for the Salt Lake Valley Region.
Dan came to the Foundation as an intern with a great desire to learn about child welfare and increase his abilities as a social worker. Once hired as an recruiter, his knowledge and abilities have expanded as he has worked in two regions and under three different Area Representatives, thus experiencing various management styles at the Foundation. This has given Dan the unique opportunity to see firsthand the effectiveness of a variety of recruitment efforts across a variety of communities and populations. Time spent working in substance abuse recovery and hospice, as well as education attained during his time at the University of Utah (Go Utes!), continues to serve him well at the Foundation.
When not collaborating with community partners or traveling to Tooele County to meet with prospective foster/adoptive families, Dan enjoys biking, golfing and spending time with family.
