Team Member Highlight: Daniel Kaisamba
Daniel was born in Cheverly, MD and raised in Beltsville, MD. He has been working as a Care Manager in our Haven program for almost a year. Before coming to Kensington Park, he was working for a lovely couple in Washington, D.C. Although his job title is ‘care manager’ he is willing to work in any department when needed. You may see Daniel covering the front desk, leading groups in activities, or staying late to make sure a resident has someone to go with them to a doctor’s appointment. He takes initiative and ownership of his work. He is also a great advocate for the residents he works with, especially those who are not always able to tell him what they need. When asked what his favorite part of working at KP is, he stated, ‘I love looking at the residents’ pictures when entering their rooms. Seeing their pictures and how they looked back then definitely gives me a warm feeling and is why I love this job.’
When Daniel is not working at Kensington Park, you can find him at the movies, dancing at dancehalls and clubs, and eating! His favorite foods are cassava leaf, jell of rice, chicken, African salad, okra soup with onion, and the list goes on. He loves to sing and listen to music – his favorite would be Afro beats, African, and R & B hip hop. Daniel is also very proud to call himself “Uncle Daniel” to a beautiful niece and a soon to be nephew.
Daniel lives the Kensington Park promise – to love and care for your family as his own. We are so very lucky to have him on our team!
