He then went on and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Administration from the University of Sioux Falls in South Dakota in 2002. Dan contributes his success in life to a few factors. One is his military experience of being a paratrooper with the 82ND Airborne Division during the Gulf War. He stated the military gave him the never quit attitude in life and gave him the sense of feeling that one can achieve anything if they put their mind to it. Second he states his favorite instructor Gwen Hawley from his occupational therapy assistant program gave him the education and a love for being a therapist and a passion to work with children. And Dan’s best motivator, mentor, role model, love of his life, and passion for shooting for the stars is his wife Justin Casey and their two boys Hunter and Carson. Dan’s special interests and hobbies are spending time with family and friends, hunting, fishing, and coaching youth wrestling and football. Dan has many years of experience of working with children from birth to age 21. Dan has lots of experience and education on working with kids with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, sensory deficits, feeding issues, Down ’s syndrome, ADHD, and multiple other pediatric disabilities. Dan puts his passion and love for helping children into his therapy sessions making every one of the child’s therapy session fun, beneficial, and very rewarding!
