After working in the corporate world for 22 years, Keith found himself at a point in his life that led him to return to school to study computers. After graduation from College, he led a program that refurbished computers and placed them in homes for people with disabilities. Keith was honored in 2010 as the National Council on Independent Living (NCIL) Region IV Advocacy winner for his dedication to promoting the rights of people with disabilities and advancing the independent living movement.

Daniel Moody

Independent Living Specialist (IL Specialist)

Born in South Africa, Daniel moved with his family to N. Carolina in 1994 just after turning 16.  While in South Africa he was a regular rambunctious teenager, playing rugby, cricket, water polo, and avoiding sharks while surfing.  After finishing high school here he went on to work in the construction field and restaurant industry.  He moved down to Charleston S.C. and attended Johnson & Wales University and studied restaurant management.  It was in Charleston, just 2 credits short of graduation, his life changed one night following a car accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down.  This drastic change didn’t slow him down.  He is currently the president of the Triad Trackers Wheelchair Basketball team, and an up and coming adaptive water skier, and is willing to try just about any sport he can… white water kayaking being his next “challenge”.
