    I had the pleasure of working with Jim at an inpatient addiction treatment center in Waldorf, MD. He was my hiring CEO and mentor for my role as Executive Director, so, during our time together I was able to get to know him quite well. Jim’s management style is extremely accessible. He is a very hands-on administrator and has a fearless approach in business development, strategic growth, contract negotiations and staff development. If you are considering hiring Jim, I can say with extreme confidence that he will be an asset to your business and bring success to any organization in which he is affiliated.
