Welcoming Dan Daniel to the team!

TLC provides early childhood intervention, education, respite, therapy services and community-based residential services to adults and children with varying intellectual, developmental, and behavioral abilities.

Prior to his pivot to the nonprofit world, Dan spent 30 years in corporate sales, marketing and management, and spent the last 14 years in wealth management with Northwestern Mutual. He has served on several nonprofit boards, including PlaySpace (now known as Marbles Kids Museum), North Hills Club, White Memorial Presbyterian Church and the Tammy Lynn Center.
