Future Goal(s): Obtain certification as a Substance Abuse Counselor followed by a Master's Degree.
Hobbies: Recovery softball, yoga, hiking, dog-walking, Humane Society and Relay for Life volunteer.
Experience: I have 15+ years of experience working in positions that assist families and individuals, including the juvenile justice system, foster family organizations and recovery residences. I am active in the recovery community as a group leader, treasurer, and activity committee chairman.
Why I Work for Hope Homes: Serving as a professional life-skills counselor within an organization that changes people's lives through recovery is immensely rewarding. By supporting the residents in a recovery-oriented lifestyle, I can help them acquire the skills they will need to be successful. My own recovery background fuels my commitment to this goal. It is a pleasure and a privilege to impact the lives of the residents of Hope Homes.
