John Palmer – Unsung Hero Feb 2015

John Palmer, Director of Operations, is Turnbridge’s Unsung Hero for the Month of February.

John’s own personal recovery experience, along with a strong desire to help young men achieve their goals, brought him to Turnbridge’s sober living program in 2009. His tenure began on a volunteer basis, facilitating groups for Phase I residents on 12-Step recovery principles.  His exceptional talent and ability to connect with the young men was quickly recognized by Turnbridge’s leadership, and he was offered a full-time position.  This was over 5 years ago.  Today, John holds the position of Director of Operations, making sure every Turnbridge family is getting the support and direction they need to become and remain healthy.
