Dan Huber, MD 

Dan grew up in a small town in Connecticut and attended the University of Rhode Island, majoring in Zoology and Chemistry. From there, he entered Saint Louis University School of Medicine where he met his wonderful wife Debbie and earned his doctorate in medicine alongside her in 1996. Interested in careers in family medicine, they came back east to New York where they trained in both rural and urban settings. This diverse residency training formed a solid foundation for rural family medicine, which Dan practiced as he began his career in a small underserved area of the Catskills. He then transitioned to private practice in Connecticut and in 2012, Dan and Deb and their two children moved to Vermont, seeking to once again live and work in a small community. Dan’s career thus far has also included work in emergency and rehab medicine, positions on teaching faculty at several medical schools and residency programs, and leadership roles in clinics and affiliated hospitals. He enjoys being a family doctor, especially in this area of Vermont where he feels part of a community. His interests outside of medicine include running, triathlons, gardening, and birding. He and Deb live in Bridport with their two pups, while their grown daughter and son have recently embarked on their own exciting life adventures.

His route to becoming a Nurse Practitioner was a bit unconventional as his professional career started as a maritime sailor piloting 1000 foot ships on the Great Lakes. After several years exploring various water ways, he became a Peace Corps Volunteer in Bangladesh working in community development. Upon completing his service with the Peace Corps, he enrolled in nursing school at the University of Rochester where he met his wife, Amber who convinced him to move back to Vermont (her home state). After working for nearly 10 years as an RN in cardiac surgery and the surgical ICU, he decided to further his depth of knowledge and became a Nurse Practitioner at The George Washington University.
