Dan Pinsker

Dan Pinsker was a Development Fellow with RespectAbility, where he researched foundations and other potential funders while also representing the organization on Capitol Hill and at the White House. Born with a birth defect called Aperts Syndrome as well as learning disabilities, he has never let his limitations stop him from living an independent, meaningful life. A North Carolina native, he attended St. Andrews Presbyterian College, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. While attending St. Andrews, he was a frequent contributor to the school newspaper and a member of the school’s business club.

Since moving to Washington, D.C., he has volunteered for a environmental conservation nonprofit with a focus of protecting the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador and Peru, worked at a community youth center as a HR and later a Research Assistant, and most recently volunteered for the White House passing along correspondence to the office of the President. He speaks Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish, and enjoys helping people overcome their limitations so that they can enjoy life to the fullest.

Pinsker also served as a Fellow during the Summer 2016 Cohort.
