Dan Rhoads grew up in the Upper Perkiomen Valley, participating in high school swimming and water polo, and Boy Scout Troop 108. He graduated from UPHS in 1996. Dan went on to Lehigh and Cornell Universities to study molecular biology, and lived in Cyprus (member nation of the European Union) for 8 years before returning to the USA.
Like many, Dan had to change course and learn new skills due to changing opportunities. He studied business and earned an MBA degree in 2014, and shifted from a career in the biological sciences to a career in financial services. His background made him into someone attentive to detail and able to explain complex topics into understandable terms.
Currently, Dan is a member of the Upper Perk Rotary Club and Upper Perk Lion's Club. He also enjoys traveling in order to spend time with his two daughters, and birding around the Green Lane Reservoir.
