Daniel S. Huffenus

Dan and his wife, Valery, moved to Asheville in 2023 after retiring from the Charlotte office of an international law firm, where he was the Managing Partner and a senior lawyer in the commercial real estate practice. While exploring opportunities to plug in with a non-profit, he learned that Open Hearts was looking for someone with his background to join the Board. After meeting with Sonia, Jessie and Debbie and learning about our mission, he knew it was a great fit! In his free time, Dan enjoys spending time with Valery and their grown children, music, traveling, exploring Asheville and learning about wines from around the world!
