Will’s work as a Process/MFG/Quality Engineer and Audit liaison with Talley Corporation, Teleflex and Klune Industries had him working with the DoD, Boeing, Lockheed and Learjet among others, to ensure procedural/specification compliance qualifies him for oversight of grant-funded programs however his work over the last few years in the SUD world qualifies him on a more personal basis to work on the ground with those directly affected by SUD. Will’s work began as the House Manager of ARG at Zion Park where he cooked for and presented coursework to men seeking recovery against the backdrop of Utah’s red rock country. This work moved him to Therapia Addiction Healing center as Program Supervisor, Men’s Program Coordinator and finally Men’s and Women’s Program Coordinator.
While with Therapia, Will was able work one on one with men and women seeking recovery in an inpatient setting, this is where developed several experiential activities utilizing the varied terrain of Utah, Arizona and Nevada. Will created and presented an Early Recovery Skills course on a weekly basis to help clients ease the transition from inpatient treatment.
