I am an average middle aged man who enjoys life. I believe in a Christian Worldview. As a recovering Alcoholic and Homeless Veteran I would like to use my extensive knowledge of Homelessness as well as various Recovery Programs to help others to overcome their addictions and live productive and happy lives. I desire to further my education in the area of Addictions Counseling with the ultimate goal of a career in Counseling. My long term goals include not only a position with a Treatment Center or a Non-profit Organization as a Counselor or Case Manager but also as a Motivational Speaker and Writer. I shall continue my education as I have always desired to obtain a college degree or two; perhaps even a graduate degree. Because of my addictions I have great unrealized potential, but have never lost my hope and ambitions to make a positive impact on my society.
