A strong background in administration gives Daniel Grimes ideal skills for his role as Vice President of Advancement and Enrollment. He is a graduate of Eastern Mennonite College (now University) in Harrisonburg, Virginia, and is interested in politics and theology. He integrates his experience working in church agencies in his role of directing AMBS’s admissions, financial aid and fundraising activities.

He’s worked for the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Blue Cross and Blue Shield affiliates, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Fresenius Medical Care. He also worked at Everence (formerly MMA) for 19 years in provider relations and group health sales.
