My Name is Daniel Hess. I was born July 4th, 1970 in Richlands, Virginia. I graduated from Garden High School in June of 1990. After High School, I attended Southwest Virginia Community College and majored in Human Services. This same year I began working for Cumberland Mountain Community Services at the ICF-MR called Baxter House. I also continued my education and later I transferred to Bluefield College in Bluefield, Virginia where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Management and Development in 1998. On May 23, 1998 that same year I married Teena Duty from Grundy, VA. We immediately moved to Grundy and on July 5, 1999, our son, Gabriel Hess was born. After I completed my Bachelors Degree I took a new Job, still with Cumberland, as a Program Advocate at O.U.R. House. I remained there for 2 years and then transferred to the MR Case Management. In 2001, I switched to the Assistant Supervisor of the Residential Support Program where I helped obtain staff to assist individuals living in their own home. In 2003 we bought a house with a small farm in Lebanon, VA and during this time I also attended Radford University where I finished my Master’s Degree in Counseling and Human Development. I changed jobs in December of 2012 to the Coordinator of Case Management Services, which is the job I remain in today. I started the process of becoming an endorsed Person Centered Trainer through the Learning Community in 2009. I was finally endorsed in June 2011. I currently teach Person Centered Thinking and after 26 years remain employed with Cumberland Mountain Community Services and expect to remain there until retirement.
