Dan is one of our elders. He has his MD from the University of Cincinnati and is a local family physician. Because being a doctor isn’t impressive enough, Dan serves as the Medical Director for the Southeast Indiana Pregnancy Care Center and is a Young Life Committee Member.
When Dan isn’t saving lives, you might find him playing music, hanging out with his family, doing house projects, or flying kites and other projectiles (we’re looking into this last one)!
He and his wife (Sara) have been at CFC for over 15 years and live close to church, near the Perfect North Ski Slopes. Dan and Sara will tell you that they are abundantly blessed with kids and kid-in-laws. In fact, they have six children and half of them are married!
- Their oldest daughter Bethany is a Licensed Music Therapist and lives in Covington, KY with her husband Jimmy.
- Next is Abigail, who is getting her Masters degree in Music Theory and lives in Lexington, KY with her husband, Jason.
- The oldest son, Josiah, also lives in Lexington and is in grad school to get his Master’s in Social Work. He recently married Savannah.
- The tallest is Ben, who is getting his Bachelor’s degree at NKU in Choral Music education.
- Next up is Daniel Jose, who is going to Ivy Tech for a degree in machining and welding.
- Saving the best for last, Jeremiah is in 9th grade at the Barkdoll Home school.
We Asked Dan:
What was the best concert you ever attended?
Favorite concert was Sara Groves, Andrew Peterson and Bebo Norman all in the same lineup on the same night.
What is something interesting about you?
I did lots of crazy things as a kid and was very accident prone – breaking many different bones in many different accidents and suffering numerous lacerations requiring stitches. My parents later said I went into Medicine because of my familiarity with the hospital at an early age.
Tell us a good work story:
As a family practice physician, I have the privilege of being the doctor for people of all ages. One day a few years ago, I saw a woman who was 108 years old in the morning and helped a newborn baby who was 24 weeks gestation that evening. So in less than 24 hours, I saw one of the oldest and youngest people on the planet.
