Luke Durham, M.Ed., NCC

luke durham of dream4 birmingham
Partner & CEO

Luke’s passion for helping others and over a decade of experience in human and personal development made joining DREAM4 in 2018 a natural fit.  He believes that “Life doesn’t get better by chance; it gets better by change,” and sometimes people just need help and encouragement to make the first step along the path to self-discovery.  Which is why purchasing the company in 2021 with David was such an easy decision — because DREAM4 changes lives for the better every day.  

Luke is a native of Birmingham, but spent almost 20 years in Nashville having received his undergraduate degree in Communication and Psychology from Vanderbilt.  While working as a director at Camp Laney in Mentone, AL, Luke also received his M.Ed. in Human Development Counseling from Vanderbilt.  Luke practiced as a Board Certified Counselor and has experience in working with a wide variety of mental health issues.  In all his professional work, he strives to help people learn how to show up authentically and consistently.  
Luke is married to Ivey and they have two daughters, Annie & Alice.  He enjoys running, spending time with his girls and almost all sports, but especially Vanderbilt baseball and UAB basketball.  

David Byrd, BA, MACE

Partner & DREAM4 Coach

After four years of coaching and training with DREAM4, in June 2021, David partnered with Luke to purchase the company. David was sixty. “Who buys a company at sixty?” David does. He believes in who we are, and he experiences, almost daily, the positive impact we have on people as team members and leaders.

Having moved around throughout his childhood, David has claimed Birmingham as his home. His degrees in communication arts: public relations and masters in education, as well as his work experience in retail management and training, human resources, leadership training and consulting have allowed him to develop his understanding and application of Human Skills.   

David is married with three children and two grandchildren. He enjoys cooking, playing golf, live concerts, the theater, and family time. He has had the privilege of performing four weddings for his participants.
