David earned his bachelor’s degree in Government and Politics from the University of Maryland and served as an intern for the Democratic National Committee in 1992. Continuing his education, David earned a Masters of Social Work from the University of South Carolina. When asked about his interest in both social work and politics, David responded “I have always wanted to serve others and believe the principles of both politics and social work were meant for this noble purpose”.
David started at New Haven in 2001 as a primary therapist. He earned his LCSW under the supervision of John Stewart in 2003. David moved into admissions where he worked for over 11 years to provide hope, compassion, and understanding to families during this uniquely stressful time. During these years, he couldn’t quite pull himself away from the clinical side of New Haven and he continued to provide additional therapy through Family Weekend workshops and group therapy.
David’s passion for accompanying and assisting families in their journey has brought him to his current position as the clinical director for the Mother Teresa House. He is excited to utilize his knowledge, skills, and values to serve students, families, and co-workers. David’s interests include sports, politics and, most importantly, his family. He has been married to his beautiful bride Kori since 1995. They have three children that keep them grounded and fulfilled.
