Shane, referred to in another post, became a certified drug and alcohol counselor. He has also founded several additional homes in the county and after a brief period of startup operational management, returns the operational responsibility back to the owners. Shane is currently the Operations Director of Normal Heights Sober Living (25 beds). For nearly 10 years we have remained true to one another and we extensively collaborate, provide checks and balances, argue, laugh, and cry with one another, keeping the safety and well-being of the recovering addict in our hearts.
With the intent of improving the living conditions and standardizing best demonstrated practices throughout the county, I accepted leadership positions in the Uplift Housing Network serving on the board of directors and as Treasurer. I also consulted with the network, visiting every member home, sharing information and ideas learned from others and continued to raise the bar searching for excellence in our network homes.
The goals, mission, principles, philosophies, beliefs and value systems agreed upon in founding Amethyst Landing can be identified as Michael’s fingerprint in other homes in San Diego.
