Dan Herman

Programs Coordinator

Matthew Dayton from Visions Service Adventures

Dan was raised in Connecticut where he spent free time exploring the local wilderness and coastline with his many cousins. He later attended UCONN where he studied Psychology and Spanish. Dan spent college summers in Utah, operating work boats on Lake Powell and exploring the southwest. He quickly fell in love with the natural beauty of the region and developed an eagerness to explore new places.

After graduating, Dan spent some time around Utah and Colorado and then a few years abroad, working a variety of jobs in Spain, Peru, and Argentina. Part of this time includes the three summers he spent working with VISIONS in Peru. Dan’s experience abroad helped him hone his Spanish skills and fueled his passion for environmentalism, psychology, and cross-cultural connection.

Dan also loves working with children, and since his travels has spent time working as an environmental educator with hopes to spread awareness and enthusiasm amongst the next generation. Currently, Dan is working as a Programs Coordinator here in the VISIONS office, helping ensure that VISIONS runs the best programs of its kind.
