Daniel Dodson, Office Associate

After spending 20 years in the transportation industry, Daniel realized that the industry was moving in a different direction and was requiring him to spend more time away from his family while mostly working nights and weekends. In order to make a career change, Daniel returned to school in 2013 and graduated from Georgia State University with a degree in Political Science in 2017.  Working fulltime, going to school fulltime, and raising a family was no easy task. BUT at an age when most people fear a career change, Daniel embraced it and welcomes the opportunity to help individuals, families and corporations to obtain their financial goals.

Daniel knows that none of this would be possible without the support of his family. Daniel married his high school sweetheart, Serrah. They have been married 21 years and have three children, Dylynne Hope is 20, their son Seth is 18, and their youngest, Katheryn is 11.

Daniel sits on the board of Exceptional Kids Athletics Inc. which is a not for profit organization that provides sports activities and sports camps for children with special needs. Daniel also helps with coaching these children. Daniel is involved in his church, The Cross Loganville, where he serves as a member of the security team.

When he finds a minute to breathe Daniel enjoys golf, coaching, and hanging with family and friends.
