After getting sober, I started working for the same treatment center that helped me get sober several years before. Through hard work and a commitment to personal and professional growth, I became the company's Director of Operations. A few years later, I bought Common Ground and have been working as the CEO of the business since 2015.
For the past 4 years under my leadership, Common Ground has grown from one outpatient treatment facility in Rochester, Minnesota to three outpatient facilities across Southeast Minnesota, in Rochester, Red Wing and Winona. We've launched a residential program for men in Winona, and have secured contracts with Olmsted and Winona County, leading the treatment programs offered to individuals in the criminal justice system in those communities.
I look forward to working with my team for continued growth, while offering consulting opportunities to other treatment leaders looking to do the same.
