Bradley McDaniels is originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan. However, he has been in Kentucky since 1989. He is currently working on his PhD in Rehabilitation Counseling.

He received his BS in biology and chemistry from Eastern Kentucky University in 1992. He is working for Dr. Bishop as a Research Assistant on a national project funded by the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA). This project is aimed at assisting people with disabilities from underserved communities who achieve independent living and vocational goals. He chose to work at HDI specifically to be able to continue to work with Dr. Bishop who has been instrumental in his development both as a student and an aspiring professional.

Bradley’s favorite ice cream flavor is Rocky Road. Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl is his favorite book. After completing his doctorate, he hopes to obtain a position at a research institution where he can implement what he has learned while a student at UK and RA at HDI. He is grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in the outstanding work being done at HDI.
