In college, Dave discovered the tremendous value of education and his desire to help other in the field of drug and alcohol treatment and research. He graduated with his doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania.

Dave was an associate professor at Temple University since 2004. In that position he was also the director of the Nonprofit Evaluation Services and Training Center in the College of Health Professions and Social Work at Temple. He taught a variety of courses in statistics, research methodology and community and organizational planning. He also was also employed at the University of Pennsylvania for 25 years, most recently as an adjunct research associate professor.

It was his position as executive director of Schuylkill County Drug and Alcohol Commission that brought him back to Schuylkill County, PA. Dave was the co-founder, with his wife, Tina, of Clinical Outcomes Group Inc., of Pottsville and Northumberland, serving most recently as the board president. COGI operates with the mission of improving the health of communities and it was with this goal in mind that Dave strove tirelessly to help others.
