Jake was born in Biloxi Mississippi. After moving in multiple places in the country due to his father’s military service, Jake finally landed in Utah. Upon returning from an LDS mission to Honduras, Jake attended BYU where he graduated in management. While at BYU he played basketball for the Cougars. During school he met & married his wife Emily. They currently enjoy 4 boys. After graduating in 2004 Jake owned and operated several successful businesses. “In 2007, my best friend and business partner committed suicide due to substance abuse & mental health issues–I felt lost.” Soon after, Jake became involved in the treatment industry and has never looked back. “I have found my life’s professional passion.”
“There is nothing better than seeing a new client lost and broken, turn the corner and reclaim hope, confidence,and a life of meaning.” That’s why The Phoenix Recovery & Counseling Centers was formed. “We’re passionate about helping those suffering from this awful disease. It is our privilege to be a part of the best clinical, admissions, program & billing teams available in this field.”
The Phoenix just celebrated its 5-year anniversary. Through its tenure, the company has hit many milestones, including being recognized on the 2016 INC 500 fastest growing companies in America list, coming in at number 34. Jake loves this industry and the clientele we support. He serves in the recovery community as the Vice President (President Elect) of the Utah Association of Addiction Treatment Providers.
