How would you describe treatment in one word?
If you could work on solving any problem in the world, what one problem would it be?
If I could work on solving any problem in the world, it would be providing ample food, appropriate shelter, and clean drinking water to those who do not have access to something that many take for granted. I think being able to provide people simple basic needs is something that needs to be accomplished before anything else can be changed.
Why is the treatment industry important to you?
It is important to me to watch not only the individual get better, but also the entire family move forward in a positive way. As a family member of a recovering addict, I can attest to how addiction truly affects the entire family. I am proud to be part of a family that is now stronger and more understanding.
What’s the most interesting thing about you that isn’t on your resume?
While I was earning my undergraduate degree, I traveled to Southwater Caye, Belize and swam with a 13-foot salt-water crocodile.
What do you value most about your job?
I love getting to meet new people all the time. In the short time I have been in this position, I have had opportunities to meet many interesting people with extremely moving stories.
