“Being in recovery from drugs and alcohol myself, I’ve experienced those overwhelming thoughts and feelings when you’re in the first few weeks of recovery. During such a critical time in my life, I remember the support and unconditional positive regard I received that helped me get through such a difficult time. For this reason, I made it a goal of mine to one day be the person who provides this to others and at Lumiere, I have that opportunity every single day.”
“I am a Father of 5 and a Grandfather of 6 (and counting) and my hobby is restoring my 1902 Craftsman-Style home.”

Being a Primary Therapist is a passion of mine because I have seen the power behind Lumiere’s addiction treatment program and how it can positively change the lives of our clients. My role is important, because it may be the first healthy relationship a client has had in their life. The clients who are able to build healthy relationships become part of an environment that facilitates change.”
“Outside of work I am a person who loves spending time with family and friends. I have a wife and two children that make my life rich with joy. I like traveling with my children and exposing them to various cultures to enrich their lives and to better understand the world.”

“Providing personalized medical care at Lumiere is a passion of mine because I have an opportunity to watch our clients make their journey through recovery and it’s extremely gratifying to see them get their lives back and recover from addiction. I work with our clients in a variety of different ways and I’m able to follow them from the admissions process on day one all the way leading up to their final day of discharge at Lumiere. Addiction really hits home for me. I understand the pain it can cause from personal losses I’ve experienced in my own family and that’s ultimately one of the main reasons why I take pride in helping others throughout their recovery.”
“I am married with two teenagers and more than anything, I enjoy spending quality time with my family. I also love to read and really enjoy vacations in the mountains!”

“My personal experience with addiction not only allows me to relate to every single person that walks through our doors at Lumiere, it also gives me an opportunity to share my experience, strength and hope with those individuals who feel that all hope is lost. Seeing someone walk into Lumiere at their lowest, then walk out of here with purpose, self-love and true happiness when they’re done is the most rewarding part of what I do as I watch them grow in their recovery.”
“Who doesn’t enjoy a few laughs and some comedy? Being a pro-amateur stand-up comedian is not only a passion and a hobby of mine, but it’s been an extremely important part of my recovery. You can find me at The Hard Rock Show when/if I ever have free time!”

“A big part of my role at Lumiere is to create awareness in our community for those individuals and their families who are faced with the challenges of addiction. Community Outreach allows us to get to the center of the problem and gives us an opportunity to let people know how and where to get help. The truth is I never would have thought working at Lumiere would be as fulfilling as it has been, but being here every day gives me an opportunity to help others, which has also helped me in my own recovery.”
“The most passionate thing I can say about my life is how much I love spending quiet moments with my wife, and my dog too. It’s a new-found freedom! I’m also an avid cyclist who enjoys riding as much as I can and I love going to concert and sporting events.”

“My goal at Lumiere is to be a part of the healing process. When your body is in good health, your mind will be strong and clear. I provide our clients fresh and healthy meals made from scratch and cater to an environment that begins with a palatable looking plate and encourages a comforting social experience that clients enjoy together.”
“I started my career as a chef with the inspiration to gather people around the table. I want my food to inspire comfort and heal the body.”

“An important part of my role at Lumiere is to create a positive and supportive environment for our clients during their recovery process. Seeing first hand the destruction addiction can cause in the lives of some of my closest family and friends is one of the core reasons I have such a strong desire for helping others make a positive transformation today. Being able to provide hope to the hopeless is something that I’ll never take for granted.”
“I am a very outgoing person who loves the outdoors and I enjoy things like playing soccer, reading, exercising and anything else that’s spontaneous and exciting! I love Jesus, I love my wife, my son and all my family and friends because without all of them, I wouldn’t be the person that I am today.”

“More than 20 million individuals throughout our country suffer from the disease of addiction, however only a fraction seek the help they need and deserve. Through my own personal experiences, I know first-hand that navigating and understanding the treatment process can be overwhelming. Whether it be stigma, finances, or the willingness to move forward – I am passionate about reaching out to the community and breaking down any barrier that may be preventing an individual to take the next step towards their recovery. Lumiere blesses me with this opportunity on a daily basis, while working alongside some of the top Addiction Specialists in the country.”
“I am an AVID sports fan! I grew up in Boston and moved to Ohio to attend Kenyon College in 2005, where I played football earning All-Conference (yes… living in the past). I still get made fun of for my accent, but on the bright-side, I have the most loving dog in the world named Lyla.”

“Seeing the courage in others is perhaps the thing I love most about my job. Few feel they have it, but I am consistently amazed at how talking about life in a safe place like Lumiere can bring hope for more. I consider it an honor to walk with people through the trials of life to discover the hidden places of their hearts and of this world, where both beauty and joy reside.”
“I am passionate about helping people, giving back to the community and I enjoy volunteering when I’m not working because it gives me another chance to understand other people’s perspectives on life.”

“Providing transportation services for all our clients is something that makes Lumiere very unique. Whether it’s driving a group of people to the gym on a Tuesday evening, picking up medications or taking everyone out for a fun excursion – we’re always on-call ready to take our clients where they need to go.”
“As a mother who lost a son to addiction, working here at Lumiere has helped me heal from my loss and has given me an opportunity to help others who want to overcome their addiction.”

“Giving life to a dish that I have prepared is a magical moment that starts with a blank canvas, as I get to add color, love and compassion to each step for our clients to enjoy a wonderful experience when it all comes together. I believe food is healing along with love for what you do!”
“As a mother of three and grandmother of one, I have loved and lost many close people in my life. My oldest, Samantha, who I lost in 2011 is the very reason I do what I do today. To share and feed as many living souls on this earth as possible is my lifelong mission – I want everyone to experience life and the love it has to offer in the fullest!”

“I have been a part of the Lumiere family since the very beginning and I help clients approach their recovery by starting with “self-discovery.” This allows them to gain some insight into their personal needs and goals, as I help them become solution-focused while they learn more about the disease of addiction.”
“After my own personal struggle with alcoholism, through the process of recovery, I have been able to gain a new way of looking at the world and experiencing a new way of life. I have come to know it is the opportunity for people who have had this struggle to re-create their lives and bring hope to not only stopping the cycle of addiction in their own families but to share this new way of life with others.”

“Lumiere is not a job for me. This is my passion and what I feel is God’s calling for my life. I live, breathe, and sleep recovery from addiction and I believe outside of being a mother, my main purpose is to help the sick and those struggling with addiction. I feel obligated to create a safe environment for our clients and hold their pain until they become strong enough to bear the weight of it themselves. My role is to believe in them and guide them until they believe in themselves. I truly strive to help this world become a better place one life at a time!”
“Single mother of three young children who are my world! Family is my life! I am a very fun-loving person that loves to laugh, smile and have fun. Bringing joy to other people’s lives is what truly gives me deep gratitude!”

“Our number one priority is to provide all clients at Lumiere with an extremely clean environment. From the common areas, to the bathrooms and bedrooms, we’re responsible for making sure all areas of our rehab center are kept neat, organized and clean at all times. I believe this type of upkeep is important to our clients and is helpful in their recovery while they’re at our facility.”
“All my children are grown and I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren and my four-legged baby, Max!”
