Community Engagement Committee
Dr. Dan Ahearn is originally from New York City. After 12 years of schooling in the South Bronx (from which he emerged a die-hard Yankee fan) he entered the Catholic Seminary of Maryknoll intending to be a priest. He left the Seminary after 5 years (God is very wise) and went on to become a physician specializing in kidney disease. He served his country in Vietnam for a year.
Dan practiced first in Indianapolis and then in Los Angeles. He switched career paths again by becoming a healthcare administrator in a hospital system first in LA and then in Pennsylvania. He has worked in Malaysia as a consultant to a hospital and most recently as CEO of a group of healthcare clinics in Reno serving the underserved-Community Health Alliance.
He is now retired from active practice, enjoying time with his wife Kathy and with his four children and six grandchildren. He continues to try to be of service to our community as Board member of several non-profit agencies in Reno and as lay minister at Sky Peaks (which he thoroughly enjoys).
