Additionally, Daniel serves as the Vice Chairman for the Department of Podiatry at Morristown Medical Center.
Any special moments, or events he has helped you or someone through?
Most recently, he helped me get through the birth of our 3rd child during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a blessing having him by my side given the circumstances.
Is he involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!

How has this community been instrumental in getting him to where you are now?
This community has been very welcoming and he is proud to call Morris County his home. Having the opportunity to donate to various local businesses and charities has driven his success.
Any funny, crazy, exciting, Dad moments to share?
College football season can be pretty intense in our house. Daniel, an Auburn University alumni, never misses a football game with our 3 children who are his lucky charms, dressing them up in team colors (orange and blue) to root for the Auburn Tigers. He has trained our 6 and 3 year old “cheerleaders” to sing the fight song every time the Auburn Tigers score. War Eagle!
Any future endeavours to look forward to?
Daniel’s business Denville Foot and Ankle is expanding! He has also recently hired an associate, Dr. Jade Richard, who is expecting her first child any day and is a Denville resident!
