The Arc of DFW Area home

Vanessa Daniel

Vanessa Daniel joined The Arc of DFW Area board of directors in 2019. Vanessa had what she considers the fortunate experience to be raised at a state hospital in Logansport, IN, as the result of being a child of the state hospital chaplain. She had the unique opportunity of being introduced to the mentally ill residents who lived there at a young age. Vanessa was able to accompany her dad for various activities with hospital residents. This nurtured her passion for becoming a nurse which led to where she is today.

Trained as an RN, Vanessa has worked most of her career as a case manager, also working for major insurance carriers, third party administrators for group health and workers’ compensation. She has worked in the areas of Medicare, Medicaid, Med/Surg and Mental Health. It is her desire to use her knowledge to be of assistance to others any way she can.
