In the early 80’s, Daniel took over the long-standing Dexter’s Pharmacy. Initially out of college, Daniel used his degree in biology from University of Buffalo in his role at Sister’s Hospital. Counter to beliefs, at the time, there were limited options for upward mobility in the local job market for biology professionals. However, Daniel had no intention of relocating to a more plentiful job market. His family and friends were all here at home, in Buffalo. As luck would have it, a colleague suggested the field of pharmaceutical services. There was an abundant need locally as chains were rapidly expanding in the area. While working in genetics at Children’s Hospital, Daniel pursued his degree in pharmaceutical sciences.
