Daniel Cho, Co-Founder

Daniel received a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering from California Polytechnic University, and a Master of Science in Systems Engineering from Loyola Marymount University in California.  After working for 10 years in aerospace engineering, he had the opportunity to merge his leadership skills with his passion for meeting the needs of the community as the director of a non profit in NYC.After years of trying to push through marriage and parenting struggles, Daniel realized that a new approach was needed to build connection within the family. Through counseling, training courses, learning about neurodivergence and the effects of trauma, he was convinced that traditional parenting strategies don’t work for everyone. Building trust and connection within the family is a journey, and Daniel is passionate about helping other parents along that path.

Daniel is certified as a coach with CernySmith Assessment, trained in The Coach Model, and as a facilitator of Empowered to Connect’s Cultivate Connection Parenting Course which was developed based on the work of Dr. Karyn Purvis and her colleagues. His experience in a variety of disciplines has equipped him to play an essential role as co-founder of Fed to Flourish.
