Team Member Spotlight – Danny Coffman

Tell us a little about yourself and what is your role at Acertara?

I am 38 years old. I have been married for 16 years and have adopted two girls (7 & 10yo). I was homeschooled my entire primary school term and after graduating High School in 1997, I moved here to CO. Following the move, I did structural framing for 8 years and during this time, I started taking college classes to begin my path of becoming an engineer. I graduated from CU Denver with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2007.

Here at Acertara, I have been working on creating work instructions to improve the efficiency and ease of the probe lab, as well as designing fixtures to allow for repeatable processes.
