Dave is actively engaged in volunteer activities within the Denver community, where he volunteers in the Prescription Pet Therapy Program at Children’s Hospital-Colorado with his dachshunds, Nestor and Parker, and he serves as a trainer in the program, certifying both handlers and dogs for the hospital. Through his volunteer experience at the hospital, Dave developed a passion for writing children’s picture books, and he has now published multiple books. Dave’s love for coaching goes beyond academics. He is a Special Olympics coach and established and coached the Men’s and Women’s Cross Country programs at Johnston & Wales, Denver. As an outdoors guy and an avid skier, it’s easy to see why Dave loves living in Colorado.
