Dave started working with Small Sums at the beginning of 2016. As the Client Services Direct Coordinator, Dave meets with Small Sums clients to provide the items they need to start back to work. In the face-to-face meetings, his favorite part of the process is listening to their stories and being able to help them—right away—with the critical things they need for their jobs. Dave melds caring and compassion with concrete and individualized support. Dave also manages the in-house resources (shoes, bus passes, etc.) and coordinates the database collection of information for the work we do.
Dave comes from a background of providing service. He worked previously as a PCA for clients with Muscular Dystrophy. He delivered furniture for the family services department of a local re-use store—The PROP Shop—and he volunteered and then worked for Bridging, both in their warehouse and with the volunteer program.
An ardent outdoorsman and rock climber, Dave is at heart a Minnesotan, which he finds inextricably linked to working and serving his community.
