Brad joined the New Life family in February 2020, starting out as the executive director. Brad began his career in the treatment industry in 2011 by working in several roles at Serenity Acres Treatment Center, a residential substance use disorder program in Maryland. Brad lent his skills to help develop the access and admission department, and from there, he built the outreach and marketing department, eventually being named director of marketing and business development. In this pivotal role, he had the opportunity to build relationships and work closely with other treatment providers, hospitals, and state and local agencies to help ensure continuity of care to patients. Brad considers it an honor to work with patients and their families. Brad says it’s truly rewarding to help people move from being in a vulnerable state to getting the treatment they need, which ultimately helps them not only recover but thrive. As CEO at New Life, Brad is excited to work with a talented team that has been a positive force within the community and work with patients to give them the best outpatient level of care possible. When Brad is not working alongside his New Life team or connecting with patients, you can find him spending time with his family and enjoying the great outdoors.
