What propelled you to work within the drug and alcohol treatment industry?
I have a strong personal commitment to addiction treatment and recovery. This commitment has made me an unabashed advocate of delivering innovative treatment which is based upon the 12-Step recovery program. When delivered with care and expertise, this multifaceted perspective helps to heal the wounds caused by the destructive experience of addiction. By working on the frontline of the drug and alcohol treatment industry, I have been able to witness radical transformations in both patients and their families. I was propelled into this industry out of my desire to see this harmonious blend of services foster these frequent transformations.
If there were only one thing you could tell us about working in your area of treatment, what would it be?
I really enjoy solving the challenges created by working in complex business, and using this passion to enrich the lives of families is a rewarding experience. The solution to each challenge is often supported by a strong network of relationships. The relationships I am able to build with key leaders in the field help to ensure Origins’ position at the forefront of the dynamic, ever-evolving landscape of addiction treatment. My work with the dedicated leaders on Origins’ team strengthens my belief that we unequivocally meet the challenges of this rapidly changing industry while remaining true to our roots in the 12-Step paradigm.
What have you learned through your experience working in treatment at Origins Behavioral HealthCare?
Results matter. The way Origins Behavioral Healthcare measures outcomes, and then rapidly feeds that data back into the design of each program really works. Cutting-edge resources and methodologies, along with our committed and experienced staff, create a healing environment where we can support whole-person wellness .
What is your favorite thing about Origins?
Our staff members are proud to sit at the intersection of advanced clinical services, contemporary addiction medicine, and 12-Step recovery. They are dedicated to using a full range of interventions to strengthen each patient’s experience with the fundamental spiritual principles that drive permanent sobriety. Walking alongside our employees as they passionately deliver this unique blend is invariably my favorite thing about Origins Behavioral HealthCare.
Do you hold any credentials or certifications, or participate in any other professional activities outside of work?
My professional training is in business and law, but my passion is for helping those who suffer from addiction and their families. In addition to my work, I am involved in several charitable endeavors focused on helping people find recovery as well as supporting individuals in early recovery.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? Do you have any pets or engage in special hobbies?
My free time is spent with my family and friends. I enjoy golf and generally being outside.
