Doug, an Atlanta native, made Western North Carolina his home in 2003. With beginnings as a foodie and event planner, Doug's work has always been guided by a sense of creating community. Sharing this community with those new to recovery defines the vision and values Doug relies on one day at a time.
Doug is currently pursuing his Masters in Social Work at Western Carolina University, which has taught him to focus on the individual strengths in those new to recovery. This allows Doug to become a true advocate, creating client centered solutions that promote healing and growth.
