Jeremy Bergeron

Jeremy is a father and an entrepreneur. Originally from Louisiana, Jeremy moved to Austin in 2011 to work with Google. That’s where he met David Naylor and the rest is history. The path to healing, transformation, and lasting impact took on a whole new meaning. Jeremy dove deep into his own healing and recovery journey in 2012 and his passion for healing trauma and integrating that healing into everyday life became his personal and professional life’s mission.

Jina Arandela

Insurance Specialist

After overcoming years of suffering from addiction, I found a spiritual path to healing that introduced me to a life full of heart and meaning through helping others. I decided to go back to school for insurance billing and coding, graduating with the highest distinction, and have found work I’m truly passionate about. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to bring my experience and knowledge of the insurance industry to helping clients utilize their insurance benefits as much as possible in support of their healing process.

Shannon Grossman

Operations Administrator

Hello! My name is Shannon Grossman, and I am serving as the Executive Assistant and Operations Manager and I love it! I have been working with the sobriety field now for over three years. With a background in the Arts and Small Businesses, I have found a complete passion for helping people and small businesses get to the next level. There is nothing better than to realize, what you possess is a talent of inspiring someone else to believe in themselves, to walk with them until they can see the path of their own freedom.

That is exactly what we are looking to do, to breathe life back into sobriety, and help you get to the next level of you. I am very lucky to have this opportunity, and work with a team, and collaborate with so many Mentors that share this same goal. I have once heard, that if you truly love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life! I now know what they mean.
