Why did you open a drug and alcohol testing facility?
I lost a relative to prescription addiction and it was a slow, painful journey that she went on through no fault of hers. She was prescribed pain medication after a back surgery and lack of education, information and oversight resulted in her untimely death.
I’ve always wanted to own a business that had a social value and I use my knowledge to now help educate parents, teachers and anyone who needs help on preventing addiction, recognizing symptoms and resources that might help.
What was your background? How many years?
I have an Associates Degree in Computer Science, a Bachelors in Business Administration and an MBA in Healthcare. I’ve primarily worked in corporate America for over 13 years serving in leadership roles and managing large projects. However, my need to do something more mission-focused led me to acquire a franchise of ARCpoint in April of 2016 and I am glad to be doing something that makes a difference.
Other community involvement? Organizations?
I mentor kids that need help with addiction and I have, throughout my corporate career, mentored kids to help them with reading, understanding the business world and career choices. I volunteer at both the school’s that my children go to and help with educating children on other cultures and diversity. I also am on the Parent Executive Committee at the Blake School serving as a Parent Volunteer.
