Daniel has been working as the Volunteer Coordinator for CASA since early 2018. He lives in Little Rock with his wife and young son. Prior to joining the CASA team, Daniel worked for several years with the Mexican Consulate in Little Rock. Working with the community and assisting an under-served population led him to seek a greater opportunity to give back. The opportunity to bring his passion for children coupled with skills as a bilingual Spanish speaker made CASA a great fit.

When not working, Daniel enjoys spending time outdoors with his family and dogs, traveling, and getting in quality riding time on his motorcycle.

She hopes to use her life experiences to help children find comfort and calmness after the trauma.
