Danny Conroy is the co-founder of AIM House. Danny graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with a bachelor of arts in humanities. Before opening AIM House in 1999 with his wife Mae, Danny held a number of positions at therapeutic programs. He started his career in counseling and activity leading in Boulder County’s EXPAND program for emotionally challenged children. Danny then took on the role of intake counselor and eventually alumni Coordinator at Sierra Tucson in Arizona. Later, Danny worked as the admissions counselor, admissions director and finally, director of professional relations at CEDU in Running Springs, California.
The knowledge that Danny gained while working at treatment facilities and therapeutic boarding schools was fundamental in building the fantastic program that AIM House is today. He is the founder of the CU Boulder Collegiate Recovery Center and was an advisor to The University of Colorado’s Center for Students in Recovery. He is a regular participant and conference moderator for the university’s annual Conference on World Affairs. He helped create the Cocoon Program for chronically ill children at Children’s Hospital in Denver. He volunteers his time with Horizons Elementary School, Boulder County YMCA and several other human services agencies on the Colorado Front Range.
Danny enjoys volunteering, spending time with his wife Mae and their four children: Quinlan, Gracie, Devlin and Ronan while also taking care of his dog, Stella. Danny speaks at national conferences, coaches youth basketball, soccer and football. He is an avid hiker and skier. If you cannot find Danny doing any of these things, he is probably catching a Denver Nuggets, Chicago Cubs, or Colorado Buffaloes game. Danny is also a huge music fan; he has played guitar since age 14 and still loves to check out jam bands and Bruce Springsteen any chance he has.
