Chief Operating Officer
Stuart’s background in substance use treatment began with his own personal journey, which landed him in Orange County, California. It was in California that he successfully completed a treatment program geared towards young men in recovery and experienced first-hand the life altering impact of sobriety. After being exposed to this entirely new way of life, Stuart decided to pursue a career in the industry. He worked his way up, starting as a behavioral health tech. Eventually, he had the privilege of serving as a case manager at the very center that helped him achieve his personal freedom.
Stuart’s vision for Calusa stems from his passion for seeing clients grow and succeed while in early recovery. He specializes in helping bridge the gap between clients and their families, allowing them to redevelop lasting relationships. His relatability, compassion and dedication to each individual client’s success make Stuart an integral member of our founding team.
Born and raised in Tuscon, Arizona, Stuart relocated to Fort Myers in 2017 to help found Calusa Recovery. As our Chief Operating Officer, Stuart’s primary goal is to maintain the overall integrity and vision for this business while ensuring each client has an authentic, individualized experience. He believes that through simple action and willingness anyone can achieve recovery and change their lives.
