Home Care Coordinator, for Alliance Services for TBI, Inc.
Born & raised in lower Manhattan. Growing up in the inner city, Daniel wanted to experience a more rural life. He found a High School with an agriculture program and by Sophomore year, Daniel had planted a vegetable garden & worked a summer at a Dairy Farm in Upstate New York.
An interest in Psychology and Sociology turned into a Bachelor’s Degree in college with a strong Biology background. While in college, Daniel also became pretty good at a sport that was brand new to him, Ice Hockey. He played in recreational leagues in New York City for the next 5 years as a well-known goalie. His favorite tee-shirt said, “My goal is to stop Yours.”
While doing some office work for an attorney, Daniel became interested in work in the legal field. He took classes at night after work & landed a job at a prestigious International Law Firm. After working as a paralegal for 8 years, Daniel decided he needed a change. He found a position at a 1st Class Lounge for Elite Flyers at John F. Kennedy International Airport. There he began to feel a different sense of accomplishment. “My clients were everyone in the room. My duty was to give them a pleasant environment. My pleasure was their smiles and gratitude.” With this position, Daniel realized that business and pleasure can mix! Giving an airline passenger Premium Service meant making them feel as welcome as a friend or honored guest. “We gave travellers a place to stay that they could look forward to.”
Now with Alliance Services for TBI, Daniel gets to utilize his Hospitality and Service skills to people who not only need comfort, but who need help to get back their lives. It’s one thing to provide a pleasurable environment, it’s another thing entirely to show someone a possibility for a more pleasurable life!
“My 1st experience meeting and talking with a TBI survivor changed my life. I learned more from him than almost anyone. When someone tells you he had to learn how to swallow food all over again, yet today is still operating as a real estate consultant, it says something about the human spirit. It says something about our innate ability to adapt, change, grow and regain parts of ourselves we thought were lost. That is an invaluable lesson. I carry that kind of strength with me now. Now boundaries and limits don’t matter as much as they used to.
