Since 1999, Dan has been Rainbow Animal Hospital’s lifeline to technology. Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, his career in the Army brought him to Las Vegas in 1989. As the hospital’s Operations Manager, he is literally responsible for maintaining the working knowledge of every piece of equipment on-premise. He is constantly excited and amazed at the technology that is being rapidly introduced into the field of Veterinary Medicine on a daily basis. Equipment and procedures, such as digital radiography and endoscopy, that not to long ago, were only available on the human side of medicine are today considered the gold standard of care in Veterinary Medicine. Dan has been instrumental in implementing those procedures and the equipment required for our practice. One minute you’ll find him troubleshooting a $50,000 piece of surgical equipment, the next minute, explaining to Erna that the reason she can’t hear sound from her I-Pod player is because she doesn’t have the volume turned on. He certainly earns his much-deserved time off as he runs the gauntlet past Erna’s desk, Jeanne’s desk, then past Dr. Patton’s desk without hearing, "Dan, do you have a quick moment"?
When he's not busy making sure the practice is running smoothly, Dan enjoys camping, hiking, music, and after recent adventures to Maui, Hawaii, is learning to play the Ukulele. Being the Renaissance Man that he is, Dan claims to no children, but has birthed several wonderful vacations!
Married to Carolyn since 1999, their home is filled with the pitter-patter of their chihuahua mixes, Minkie and Maui.
Dan lives by the philosophy that "the only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you". If only everyone could see the world that way, as Louis Armstrong song…"What a wonderful world".
